Cinnamon Sugar Gift

I think this cinnamon sugar recipe is probably about as easy as they come for a homemade gift. Cinnamon sugar, in case you haven't heard of it, is a delicious treat when sprinkled on buttered toast in the morning. It's also nice on porridge or in your morning coffee.

Recipe for cinnamon sugar:
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon (more or less to taste)

Just mix them together and put them in a small jar. I like to add a stick of cinnamon to the outside for decoration (see photo.) You can't really see it in the photo, but the cinnamon makes a nice swirly pattern with the sugar.

Hope you like it as much as my family does!

Easier
by: Hazel J

If you use caster sugar instead of granulated sugar you won't need to use your food processor - much quicker!

Tried this
by: Sharjor

When I make this, I use granulated sugar but put it in the food processor to get the texture I like. I like the favor of the granulated sugar but not the texture of powdered sugar.

Excellent Idea!
by: Denton, TX

I like the idea of putting the mixture through a food processor. I'll try that next time.

Cinnamon Sugar
by: Sharon

I've made this for eons. But I like to put the mixture in the food processor first to create a more fine powder. It gets rid of the gritty texture and replaces it with a nice smooth powder that melts real nice in the butter or margarine. It almost creates a sauce. Oh so Good.

Cinnamon and Sugar
by: Judy

I love cinnamon any way, form or fashion but especially with sugar. I eat it on cooked rice (best with brown) with melted butter, cinnamon and sugar, coffee cakes, cinnamon rolls and when baking pies we roll out the leftover pie dough to flatten shapes out and brush them with melted butter, then sprinkle sugar and cinnamon and bake at 350 for approx. 8-10 minutes (edges will start to turn golden). This was something my mom always did and it was great to eat a couple on Thanksgiving and Christmas morning with milk or coffee for breakfast since we'd have a huge meal later. I keep a jar in my spice cabinet of mixed cinnamon and sugar at all times since I use it a lot and it has an inside removable lid with holes for sprinkling.

Cinnamon Sugar
by: Judy

I have been using this for years in my house. I keep an empty cinnamon powder bottle that has holes in the cap for shaking and put my cinnamon sugar in that so it sprinkles rather than pours.
I use it to make cinnamon toast and I love cooked brown rice with a little butter melted in it and cinnamon sugar sprinkled on top. YUMMY!
I also get store bought flour tortillas and cut them into wedges with a pizza cutter or knife and fry them for just a few minutes in hot oil. They should just start to change to a golden color. I drain them on paper towels and sprinkle cinnamon sugar on them while still hot. Makes a nice treat or snack.
