I love cinnamon! It's one of my favorite flavors. I was racking my brain for something to bake on Sunday. I was thinking about cookies, but I didn't feel like rolling a few dozen cookies. I found this recipe and my cookie craving was cured. They had a nice cinnamon-sugar flavor and tasted just like snickerdoodle cookies. The cake was moist and a little dense. It held together well. I topped them with a cinnamon swiss meringue buttercream dusted with cinnamon-sugar. I'm not sure that this icing was the perfect complement. I think next time I will use my cinnamon cream cheese icing.
