Cinnamon Twists

"You will find these in my freezer at almost any given time (since I like cinnamon as some people like chocolate). They are a favorite and these treats will always be on my dainty tray. I have been making these for many years"

    Always a hit no matter where I bring these and I make sure to put lots of the cinnamon/sugar mixture on both sides. Brown and slightly caramelized on the bottom is extra delish. Thumbs up!

    With the new rating system I can only give these four stars but your shortbread is still a five star recipe. They really are a pleasant change from the normal cookies and bars.

    These were easy to make and very good, although slightly dry. I replaced some of the flour with whole wheat flour. My husband wants me to make them with some chocolate the next time. In the meantime he compensated by spreading Nutella on them;-)
