Old Fashioned Cinnamon Toast

Jeanne Gliddon


Has anyone out there ever had real cinnamon toast? I don't mean the kind where you toast the bread, spread on some butter and then sprinkle it with cinnamon sugar. Real cinnamon toast, is when you make a cinnamon butter, spread it on bread and then cook it under the broiler until it becomes bubbly and golden brown. What you end up with is sweet, chewy and finger licking good! I have had arguments with people who think that I am making it wrong but as soon as they taste it they have to eat their words but they would rather eat this delicious Old Fashioned Cinnamon Toast.
