Cinnamon Flats, a delicious cinnamon infused cookie

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Cinnamon is such a delicious spice, both in smell and in taste. These cookies are rich in cinnamon flavor, by using both ground cinnamon and cinnamon extract. It stands to reason, that we should start by making the cinnamon extract so that we can move on to making the cookies as quickly as is possible!

Make your own Cinnamon Extract. Use in cookies or anywhere that a touch of cinnamon would be enjoyed!
Cinnamon Extract is very easy to make.

Cinnamon Extract

1 small glass bottle, with cork stopper
2-3 cinnamon sticks, broken to fit the bottle is needed
1/4 c vodka, or more depending upon the size of the bottle

Drop cinnamon sticks into the bottom of the bottle, cover with vodka.

Replace cork stopper and let rest in a cool dark place until the vodka has turned brown and smells like cinnamon heaven!

Now we are ready to make cookies...
