As I made cinnamon toast today, I wondered if the relatively simple recipe would be lost to my children just as I'll never figure out exactly how Granny Rowlett made biscuits. For all posterity, here's how it ought to be done:
Preheat the broiler on the oven to high.
Put four pieces of bread on a cookie sheet. (All of my recipes are like this)
Spread a thin layer of butter on top.
Mix two teaspoons of cinnamon and two teaspoons of sugar in a small container and mix well then sift evenly on top of the bread.
Put toast under the broiler, but don't walk away. Not even for a minute. And how I know that is another story for another day.
