Cinnamon sticks #creativecookieexchange

“No winter lasts forever. No spring skips its turn.” – Hal Borland.

I just got back from a trip to my hometown and am only just easing back into the “regular” life. Sometimes I feel like I need a vacation to recover from my vacation. You know what I mean.?

So I’m back to my kitchen and oven after a good while and it’s with these light and crunchy cinnamon sticks. Something I learnt about cinnamon during all my taste trials with friends and family ( when you bake and blog, people around you get fed a lot!) , you either love it or hate it. There’s no in between. Me ? Its love all the way , and a newfound one at that. I love the ‘sugar meets spice’ flavours in cinnamon bakes and adore how my kitchen smells right after. Autumn-y n wood-sy almost.

This recipe is adapted from Arthur flours . It’s almost a pastry kind of cookie that is filled with a cinnamon sugar and twisted . Each cookie is whimsically different from the rest ! The weather has been cold and weepy where I am , and these cookies were the perfect accompaniment as I huddled under my blanket with a cup of coffee and this great mystery novel that I m reading. Ahhh…!



These cinnamon twisty cookies are buttery ,crunchy and flaky. Lovely flavour. So light , you could eat several in a go and aren’t too sweet. They would make good gifts for the festive season that’s coming and delicious with your mid morning cuppa .

  1. What a great idea for a cookie! The perfect size for snack time. I wonder how they would taste dipped in Nutella? (my grandson said they look like the little cookies they give you with the to-go pack) 🙂

  2. These sticks look so crunchy and yummy, perfect with a cup of afternoon tea! You are enjoying such a lovely weather, I wonder if this year Mumbai will witness cooler climate 🙁

  3. Bangalore is wonderfully chilly right now… It’s raining a lot though.. Hope Mumbai gets cooler soon .. So that u can bake n enjoy more warm cookies with coffee !
