If you like sugar crackers and cinnamon,  you’ll love these crunchy cinnamon sugar crackers.

Cinnamon Sugar Crackers

I want to share my cinnamon sugar crackers that are crunchy, full of cinnamon flavor.  I adapted this recipe from my Sesame Seed Olive Oil Crackers.   As an alternative, I change olive oil to melted butter which works very well.  For some reason, in my mind, butter and cinnamon sound better together 🙂

These crackers remind me palmiers which I love a lot.    After making the dough, as usual, I divided them, rolled out and baked.  Once I baked, they gave me the feeling of palmiers.  This inspired me and I rolled out the second dough on a surface coated with cinnamon-sugar.  So, I write the recipe using this method. (While some who tasted these crackers said they got the feeling of palmiers,  the others didn’t.  So I don’t want to mislead you.)

Sugar Crackers

Let’s start;

I melt the butter halfway and stir, set aside.  Meanwhile I put the flour, salt, sugar and cinnamon in a medium bowl and mix well.  Then, I add the melted butter and water and mix well with a spatula.

Steps of Making Cinnamon Sugar Crackers: Mixing flour, salt, sugar and ciinamon. Adding melted butter and mixing until totally combined with a spatula.

It is a little bit sticky dough but easy to roll out.   I lightly flour the worksurface.  Then I divide the dough in half, make a ball out of each dough and leave them on the counter to rest.

 While the dough is resting, I make the cinnamon-sugar mixture.

I sprinkle 1/4 of the cinnamon-sugar mixture onto the worksurface and start to roll.  The dough is very soft, easy to work with. You can end up rolling out the dough very thin.  But I suggest not to roll out thinner than 1/16 inches (2mm) thick.

I roll out the dough very long and cut from the sides to make 16*6 inches long (40*16cm) dough.  I cut out the dough into approximately 1,25 to 1,5 inches squares (3-4cm squares).

I take them on to the baking sheet.  Then I prick the dough with a fork to prevent puffing and sprinkle the sugar on top and bake for 12 minutes or until the edges are getting darker.  After that, I turn off the oven and let them stay there for 5-6 minutes.  Finally, when the top of the crackers turn golden brown, I take them from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for 10-15 minutes or until crunchy.   Shortly, my eyes are on the crackers.  The color tells when to turn off the oven and take them out of the oven.

    When I was a kid, I was a huge fan of cinnamon toast even until now. I just love the smell of warm, toasty bread, brown sugar and cinnamon fresh out from the oven.
