Earlier this month I wanted to bring some treats to some of the staff at work who are working really hard, but who are not always noticed as putting in long hours and helping our students succeed inside and outside of the classroom in all the ways they are contributing. So, I decided to bring some cookies into the office to share with them. When I was looking through our family cookbook, I was intrigued by this recipe for Cinnamon Jumbos. The cinnamon flavor is very subtle in the cookies — I’m curious how to strengthen it in the future.
For those who like kringla, but don’t want to go to the work of rolling them out, I found this recipe to taste very similar to the taste of traditional scandinavian kringla that we eat at the holiday season.
2 c sugar
1 c margarine
1 1/2 c sour milk (use 1 Tbsp vinegar)
2 tsp vanilla
5 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
Combine sugar, margarine, and eggs. Add milk and vanilla. Mix well. Add flour, soda, and salt. Drop by teaspoon on cookie sheet. Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon mixture before baking. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes.
