Swiss Cinnamon Crisps
A cookie that's ready in a snap. Amy Spiro
Enjoy the return to chametz with this fun, quick cookie.
A friend recently told me that she loves my blog, but that she only makes the recipes that are easy and have a high yield. I get it; I happen to like spending time in the kitchen, but many people want to get in and out as quickly as possible.
While this recipe isn't quite that speedy, it did teach me a great shortcut for cookies using everyone's favorite kitchen tool: the pizza cutter. Instead of laboring over stamping out different shapes with a cookie cutter, just roll out the dough and cut it into strips, squares or diamonds before your oven even gets a chance to preheat.
Since Shabbat snuck up on us about 30 seconds after Passover ended, these are a great treat to whip up and enjoy now that chametz is back in our lives.
