Cinnamon Sugar Blondies

by Lorena

You know how much I love cinnamon and these cinnamon blondies are my new obsession. I love that they have cinnamon at the centre and also on top giving you a crispy crust to bite into.

These blondies are really thin and I like them that way because they’re sweet but it you like them thicker you can double the blondie dough section (not the centre or the top, though).
