This cinnamonny recipe sounds wonderful! It would be great on top of some healthful morning glory muffins, smeared all over a thick slice of banana bread, or even a little dollop in place of an icing on a cinnamon roll. It would make an awesome snack sandwich in between two squares of a cinnamon flavored graham crackers for the kids. Very yummy!

This is my new go-to frosting recipe! It has the perfect amount of cinnamon in it. Not too much, not too little, just right. I think I'll put it on a butter pecan cake mix that I'm making next.
