I have fond memories of cinnamon and sugar. On toast, sopapillas, sugar cookies and even Cinna-Sticks!
Cinna-Sticks are super easy dessert or snack recipe using flatbreads, a simple cinnamon sugar mixture and powdered sugar glaze. Kids just love them!
The concept for easy Cinna-Sticks are simple: cinnamon toast, but flatbread, with a simple powdered sugar glaze. Similar to the dessert served by some pizza delivery chains, the homemade version is so much better.
This might sound odd to some, but cinnamon sugar toast was one of my favorite childhood memories. No matter how I’ve made mine since being an adult, there is something about how my mother makes it that is just… better.
Then there was a silly SNL skit mocking NPR called Delicious Dish. On one episode they highlighted the state dish of Nebraska… toast. My mother grew up in Nebraska, so the giggles just never stopped. She really is the queen of toast!
Ever since, I crave the simple mixture of butter, cinnamon and sugar on everything. Gritty and sweet, there is nothing like it. What is the simplest way to feed my craving? Cinna-Sticks, of course!
I’m guessing I am not the only one who has this craving because pizza chains to fast food joints now offer some sort of cinnamon sugar treat for sweet toothed patrons.
Easy Cinna-Sticks can be made on any type of flatbread, but my favorite is Stone Fire (nope, this isn’t a sponsored pot, I do really like Stone Fire). It is a little gummy, freezes well and bakes up light and fluffy.
A few brushes of salted butter and then a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar is all it needs before being popped in the oven. Drizzle with a 2-ingredient powdered sugar icing and BOOM, you are done!
