Cinnamon.. Biscuits.. You can never go wrong with that combination.
First time I stepped into a kitchen to start baking, it was about this time of the year, with the bit of cold and the need to feel warm and snuggle-y. I started browsing for all these delicious things you can do with cinnamon and what better than biscuits with a cup of tea to satisfy your cravings?
My sister was going camping and took half of the batch with her, leaving me with nothing but the crumbles left on the baking sheet. But hey bright side is everyone loved them!
This started a tradition. Each year before she goes to camp I make them for her. And this year is no different. After a long day of back to back classes, I got home and saw how excited she was about it, so I couldn’t possibly say no even though i was dead tired!
