With their decorative cinnamon swirls, these lovely braids taste as good as they look! And their aroma while baking will make your mouth water. For a holiday touch, you could decorate the drizzle of icing with pecans and candied cherries. —Vick Holloway, Joelton, Tennessee
I bring these to every event--they’re always a huge hit. Kids love them, and moms like making them because they’re lighter than your average scone. If you have trouble finding cinnamon chips at the store, you can get them online. —Kathy Monahan, Jacksonville, Florida
“This bread is based on the winning recipe in a local contest I judged. I turned it into a double braid and added more peppers. It’s not difficult and is well worth the effort. Plus, it smells glorious when baking!”—Fancheon Resler Bluffton, Indiana
"My husband and I have three active sons, so I'm always busy in the kitchen," writes Sharon Walker of Huntington Station, New York. "This rich quick bread is a favorite. I like to cover loaves with colored plastic wrap to give as gifts."
“I found this delicious recipe in a magazine years ago and adapted the original to make it my own," recalls Carol Gillespie of Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. "The rich, bite-sized treats are full of cinnamon flavor and great with coffee!”
