I don't have a very sweet tooth. At least, not as a rule.
Nonetheless, the urge to bake came over me this past weekend.
Growing up, these were called Cinnamon Twirls in our house.
A simple tea biscuit recipe, pressed flat, smeared with butter (or margarine) and brown sugar, sprinkled with cinnamon, then rolled, sliced and baked.
You could slice them in half, but my technique has always been to "untwirl" them.
Why change now?
You may be wondering why these tickseed flowers made an appearance.
I thought it was time for a diversion, to "cut the sweet".
You'd think I'd have enough to nibble on, but the Baking Muse was still calling.
With banana-bread-loving company coming on Monday, I had to bake again. Really!
My house had that warm, homey fragrance on Sunday afternoon.
There is something satisfying about mixing a little of this and a smidgen of that and having something yummy happen.
Remind me to take some long walks this week to counterbalance a double dose of sweetness.
With this afternoon's cuppa, there are choices for teatime tidbits.
