Cinnamon is one of the most familiar and distinctive spices in the Southern Living kitchen.
It is the essential ingredient in Cinnamon Rolls, which are some of our most-beloved—and maybe most overindulged-in—sweets. It only takes a little cinnamon to create a lot of flavor. Our Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Frosting use under a teaspoon, while our Christmas Morning Cinnamon Rolls use a little more: one tablespoon. Cinnamon also makes its appearance in some other surprising sweets including Cinnamon-Chip Ice Cream Balls and Vanilla-Cinnamon Ice Cream. This spice also adds its own special heat to sides and salads.
Consider a Cinnamon Vinaigrette when you want a twist on an oil-and-vinegar classic. Or, if you want to make a spicy salad instead, you won’t believe how wonderful a Cinnamon Apple Salad can be. It only takes a spoonful or two of cinnamon, with its bold and distinctive flavors, to add spice and delight to meals from morning to night. Start your day with some Cinnamon-Raisin Biscuits and see where the flavor day takes you from there.
