The recipe called for 1 1/2 tsp of cinnamon but I did not like how dark the cinnamon made it look. Next time I'm going to only use 1 tsp of cinnamon.
Princess loves to help me cook. She wants to stir everything.
I got the recipe from Sandra Lee's Magazine and it was suppose to be a dessert dish at my birthday dinner, but we ran out of time and I promised the family I would cook it Sunday.
Everyone really liked it and it's something I can see myself making again.
Love & Blessings,
