Baked Citrus Rounds

I got this recipe (which comes from Barbados) several years ago. I like to make this as a fruit serving when we have a spicy Caribbean dish for dinner, because the succulent citrus rounds nicley complement the savory Caribbean spice blends. But I think it would also be great with other spicy cuisines as well (Mexican, Spanish, Thai, etc.). It's very simple to prepare, and it uses only 4 common ingredients. I hope you like it.

Ingredients

2 large
oranges
1 medium
grapefruit
1 1/2 Tbsp
light brown sugar
1 tsp
ground cinnamon

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 400°F.
2
Peel both oranges and the grapefruit; discard the peels. Slice all the citrus fruits into thin rounds (about 1/4" thick). Place the citrus rounds on an ungreased baking sheet, overlapping the edges just a bit.
3
In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar and cinnamon and stir until thoroughly blended. Place about a teaspoon of the sugar mixture on the top of each citrus round. Using the back of the spoon, spread the sugar mixture evenly over the top of the citrus rounds.
4
Bake in the oven (at 400°) for about for 5 or 7 minutes, or until the fruit slices are heated through. Serve immediately, while the fruit slices are still warm.
