Makes 4 pieces of toast
One of my favorite memories as a child was the cinnamon sugar toast my mom used to make us girls. There was just something so spectacular yet comforting about turning a piece of plain ol’ Mary Jane into a sweet, buttery, crispy confection. What an improvement! There wasn’t a bruised knee or runny nose that mom’s cinnamon sugar toast couldn’t fix.
But we’re “grown ups” now. We have “big and important” things to do. Sometimes life can get so hectic you forget the little things. So let’s just take a minute and relax. It’s a chilly November Sunday morning and the holidays are at our back door. Let’s take a moment to sit back, enjoy a hot cup of coffee with a shot of Baileys and savor my “grown-up” version of cinnamon sugar toast.
What you’ll need:
– 4 pieces of white bread
– 4 Tbsp softened BUTTER *not margarine *not light butter *not a buttery spread
– 2 Tbsp sugar
– 1/2 tsp cinnamon
– 1/4 tsp brown sugar
– 1/4 tsp rum extract
Pre-heat your oven to 425 degrees. In a bowl, combine all ingredients. Do not melt the butter. It works best at room temperature. Spread the mixture on each slice of bread, all the way to the edges. Place the bread directly on the oven rack and toast for about five minutes. KEEP YOUR EYE ON IT! Unless you want to make sure your fire detector is working.
After they are nice and toasty, turn off the oven and switch to broil for a minute or so. KEEP YOUR EYE ON IT!
That’s it! All done! Enjoy
