cinnamon tea cakes...

The cinnamon sugar coating just takes this light little
cookie to happy sweet land.
Wahoo! Day 15 of our 25 Days of Christmas Treat Extravaganza!! This was a new recipe to me this year and I was hoping that it would be as yummy as the picture in the cookbook looked. Wilton rarely disappoints and this recipe was no exception. They were delish!

Light and airy with a kiss of cinnamon. A perfect little partner for a hot cup of tea while reading a good book by the fire. 

Happy Baking!
