I found this recipe on Barbara Bakes. They sounded so good I thought I would share.

I will be making these, anything cinnamon has got to be good.

They looks so pretty.

2Divide the dough in half. Add red food coloring to one half to achieve the desired color. Divide each color into thirds. On a powdered sugar coated surface (I used a Silpat) roll one third of the white dough into a rope and one third of the pink dough into a rope. Twist the ropes around each other.

3Shape dough into 1/2 inch balls (I used the small end of a melon baller to portion out the dough) and roll in granulated sugar.

4Place on baking sheets, flatten with a fork, and allow to stand 1 hour to harden. Store in airtight containers in refrigerator.
