I think you may have noticed that I have been on a cinnamon kick lately. I don’t know what to say except that maybe making so many cinnamon recipes for my son has made his love for it rub off a little bit. So I decided to take that love for cinnamon & add to my Yummy Bar Recipes with these Cinnamon Roll Sugar Cookie Bars. These are all the yummy goodness of a cinnamon roll all neatly compacted into a little easy to eat bar. Oh my word!!!
I made a batch of these when the hubs was in the hospital.
I took them in for the staff caring for him since he was there for so long. They sure loved them.
My son – well – he was in cinnamon heaven for sure.
