Reviews for Cinnamon Breakfast Bites
"My entire family LOVED these! They were gone in minutes! I will DEFINATELY be making them again soon!"
"I'd made this recipe when it first was put in TOH! It's GREAT!"
"so GOOD!! my whole family loved these- gone in a matter of minutes!"
"These are a perfect snack breakfast for my son who is allergic to dairy. I use soy milk and dairy-free margarine. They are good warm, but you can also make them ahead of time."
"Thought these looked easy to make. My family was ok with them. I added a bit of cinnamon and ground nutmeg to the batter and am glad I did. Otherwise, I think they might have been too bland. I would also suggest using parchment paper to bake them on as the butter and sugar/cinnamon ran off a bit during baking and burnt before the cookies were finished baking. I will probably make these again but not something that will be requested over and over."
"I was really excited to make this recipe, however I did not expect to "crunch" on the crispies. I would like to try this recipe again, but I would want to look into substituting something else for the crispies."
"This were amazing!!! My family ate them up within 2 days!!! Thanks for a great recipes!!!"
"it sounds easy"
" Can you just use butter instead of butter-flavored shortening?I use unsalted butter for everything. Haven't bought regular butter in years.
