Your thoughts…

  1. Vanilla and cinnamon cookies sound good. I like the idea of vanilla sugar. Now that I have some vanilla beans I will have to try making some vanilla sugar.

  2. margot, those are such cut cookies…thanks for sending them over.

  4. I love cinnamon and these cookies look wonderful, Margot!

  5. Cinnamon has been getting a lot of good press lately. Apparently it packs quite a nutritional punch.
