“I like this recipe because it is so simple to make. I read that cinnamon is very good for you. I found a cinnamon cookie here, but I didn't like that it didn't hold together. I took a recipe of mine and adapted it to the Cinnamon Cookie I wanted. If you choose to glaze this cookie, warm the frosting in the microwave so that it can be spread thinly.”
