happy tuesday! i can’t believe Thanksgiving is almost upon us. i am so so excited. Lane and i are going back to Texas to spend Thanksgiving with my family and i can’t wait.
but we’ve still got a couple of days before turkey day, so i’m going to share these yummy cinnamon bars with you. they are chewy, sweet, and pair perfectly with coffee. i know pie gets the center-stage on Thanksgiving but i think these little cinnamon nibletts can hold their own next to even the best pumpkin pie. OK that’s ridiculous- pumpkin pie clearly tops cinnamon bars, but still. these guys are a close second.
so i created these recipes because my hubby LOVES cinnamon. no joke. everything that i make that could possibly have any cinnamon in it, he always tells me it needs more. i partially (mostly) suspect (firmly believe) that he says that just because he thinks he is the only one who can flavor foods correctly. i swear, when i let him put in the “right amount” of cinnamon it is the same amount i would have put in. but whatever. i guess that’s marriage? i still love him.
we got married this past july and i can now say as a seasoned wifey (lol) that marriage is awesome. adjusting to living with someone full time is a bit of a challenge (he is always around!), but its a great challenge. and even though i may never perfect the amount of cinnamon that goes into baked goods, i’m still glad i married him. he’s my very best friend.
and that is why i made him these cinnamon bars. out of love. and a desire to eat something delicious with my coffee. it was 50-50. they are buttery and spicy-sweet, and these come out thin and chewy and can be cut into rectangles or fun shapes (helloo Christmas cookie cutters). wrap ’em up and give them to your neighbors as gifts. or eat them all yourself. because they pair perfectly with a cup of coffee. no judgement.
