    Ditto for me! I love cinnamon, etc. A few yrs ago I visited th Ellis Island Immigrant museum near the Statue of Liberty, and found a cookbook compiled by a man who acted as a tour guide. People from all over the usa mailed him the recipes they brought from their homeland. Historically and "foodily"it is a treasure.

    This recipe reminds me of some of those recipes.

    I will save this one. thank you. trish
