The dough is sticky.
So when you roll it out, make sure you use enough flour. And roll to about 1/4" thickness.
I was brushing with egg and sprinkling the cinnamon/sugar on each one individually. Until my mom was here when I made a batch. "Brush and sprinkle the entire surface and then cut", she said. Genius.
They are light and fluffy. And biting into the cinnamon chip is, well, yumm. And do you know what they go really well with?
