Tuesdays With Dorie – Cinnamon Squares

by Jessica on June 2, 2009

I can’t believe I waited so long to try these babies! They were outrageously yummy and they will definitely become a staple around here! I was swamped last week, so I waited until the last possible moment to make them… literally, the last minute, like 11p Monday night. 🙂 Fortunately, they took about 10 minutes to put together, and after a short 30 minutes in the oven and a little trip to the fridge, about 15 minutes to set up.

Cinnamon Squares

They were beautiful and tasty… at least that’s what I heard from my lunch date. Or was it me that was beautiful? 😉

Thanks to Tracey of Tracey’s Culinary Adventures for such a great pick!! Head on over to her blog for the recipe and don’t forget to check out the other TWD bakers here!

I’m glad this worked out for you! It did smell Heavenly, but something went wrong with mine. Amazingly, my ribbon didn’t sink LOL

These look great! And your frosting looks so incredibly good I think I might have to try these again with it 🙂

Your swirly frosting looks fabulous! These were so good and I loved that they were so easy.

How on earth did you get your chocolate ribbon to curl up on the edges like that? It looks great!

I’m sure your lunch date was referring to you as being beautiful!
Your Cinnamon Square cake looks soo luscious! I love how the cinnamon/chocolate ribbons end up looking like smiles! =)
