Studies have shown that just 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon per day can lower LDL cholesterol.

Several studies suggest that cinnamon may have a regulatory effect on blood sugar, making it especially beneficial for people with Type 2 diabetes.

In some studies, cinnamon has shown an amazing ability to stop medication-resistant yeast infections.

In a study published by researchers at the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Maryland, cinnamon reduced the proliferation of leukemia and lymphoma cancer cells.

It has an anti-clotting effect on the blood.

In a study at Copenhagen University, patients given half a teaspoon of cinnamon powder combined with one tablespoon of honey every morning before breakfast had significant relief in arthritis pain after one week and could walk without pain within one month.

When added to food, it inhibits bacterial growth and food spoilage, making it a natural food preservative.

One study found that smelling cinnamon boosts cognitive function and memory.

Researchers at Kansas State University found that cinnamon fights the E. coli bacteria in unpasteurized juices.

It is a great source of manganese, fiber, iron, and calcium.



You have no idea how happy seeing this recipe made me... snickerdoodles are my favorite! This has jumped to the top of the list for recipes to try :)


I can't wait to try these! I'm with you, Greg, I want to taste the cinnamon, big time. These are right up my alley. In fact, I saw the "picturing" post and had to make myself be patient and wait for you to post the actual recipe, rather than badgering you for it. I knew it was coming, and it did. :-) Will be baking these soon!


These are delicious and addicting! I made them the other night, and my husband and I can't stop eating them. Good thing it's "only" a two dozen batch...

I love the texture - great combination of cakey/soft/chewy. The cookie itself isn't too sweet, making the cinnamon-sugar coating a perfect touch.

I used 3/4 t. baking soda, no cream of tartar.

My first pan could have used more coating, so I did extra rolling for the second pan. Still had a lot of the cinnamon-sugar left over. I would roll them even more next time, and get a really good coating on them.

I love playing with chai spices in baked goods, so next time I make these (and oh, there will be a next time) I may try using a chai spice mixture in place of the cinnamon, just for fun.

Thanks for another wonderful recipe, Greg!


YUM! I love snickerdoodles and so do my kids. I will make some of these today.
