Cinnamon Tea Cakes is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 30.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from I am not a baker, I can bake cookies and simple cakes,but, that was about it. I was looking forward to this recipe, I felt it was simple enough how could I go wrong? I followed the directions as listed. I measured precisly as directed. I even got online to double check the recipe. I found the batter to be very difficult to work with. the batter would not hold shape as if there was not enough moisture in the dough. I added a little more moister, was finially able to drop by spoonfuls as directed. the batter melted in the oven and flattend the dough.

You can also add coconut flakes sprincles icying peanuts there are so many things you can do on donuts on a stick that you just cant imagine. Completly easy you can have lots of fun when you add kids and there imagination.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I baked 8 dozen Cinnamon Tea Cookies for a cookie exchange and they were a hit. Easy to make. The dough is not sticky and the warm cookie grabs and holds the cinammon sugar mixture . Easy, yummy and quick.
