When I have cinnamon at my disposal it's time to turn on my Thermomix and prepare these fantastic Cinnamon Cookies.
They are very easy to prepare and good to eat alone or dipped in hot milk or flavoured tea or together with a yummy hot chocolate.
Cinnamon is an Oriental spice with a centuries-old story behind it: it is mentioned even in the Bible (in the Exodus book) and it was imported in Europe on Holland caravans during the Middle Age.
The first recipe in this article has been sent by Marisa from Quarto (NA). She told me she has inherited this recipe from his grandmother who used to prepare these biscuits for her grand-daughter when she went to visit her in Genoa. Then Marisa thought she could adapt the recipe for Thermomix, I personally thank her :-)
The second recipe comes from Verona it was sent by Elisa who said: "I love cookies and I love making experiments with my two children too. One afternoon we did not know what to do, it was Christmas time and my elder son (11) suggested cinnamon....then we thought to make cookies with it".
Other cinnamon recipes you can prepare with Thermomix are (you should know I love cinnamon by now!!!!!!): the Cinnamon Rolls or the delicious Apple Pie.
