View Full Version : Used Vietnamese Cinnamon in the "Cinnamon Spice" Cookie recipe
November 15th, 2010, 12:49 AM
I just tried Karen's recipe for the "Cinnamon Spice" cookies and they were absolutely delicious! I made it exactly the way the recipe is, but I used vietnamese cinnamon. The label actually reads "Saigon" cinnamon. I read that vietnamese cinnamon is a sweeter cinnamon. I think it is one of the best cookies I've ever tasted, and I love the "No Fail Sugar Cookie". The "Cinnamon Spice' are right up there IMHO. They didn't spread at all. A lovely fall cookie recipe!

I bought some vietnamese cinnamon from Arthur Flour and LOVE it! I made my mom a cinnamom pound cake for her birthday and it was out of this world good! I'll have to find that recipe and give it a try...sounds good. :)

So I am curious, is this recipe kind of like a snickerdoodle or a gingerbread cookie....obviously I have not seen the recipe yet.

Sorry so late in responding. I have so many turkey cookie orders, I am going bonkers! The vietnamese cinnamon I used actually said "Ground Saigon Cinnamon" on the label. The brand is "Spice Islands" that I purchased at my local grocer (Publix for anyone who shops at that market). It also says "100% organic". I'm not a swearing woman, but I swear it made quite a difference in taste. I took a big turkey platter into work, and those turkeys disappeared within minutes and everyone raved over them. That's why I got so many orders.
The "Cinnamon Spice" cookie recipe is really neither like snickerdoodle or gingerbread. Snickerdoodle is more like a cinnamon flavored sugar cookie. Gingerbread is more "cakey" and light. This cookie is crisper, but chewy at the same time. It's closer in flavor to a gingersnap, only more mild in flavor and softer. I just asked my husband how he would describe it and he says it's in between snickerdoodle and gingerbread. It's a lovely cookie. A must try!
