How great is the smell of cinnamon anything baking in the oven? Here it smells like cinnamon, ginger, vanilla, apple ... You get the picture. I probably don't really need to say anything else. It's definitely an autumnal smell, and the fact that the temperature has been plummeting over the course of the day only adds to how appealing this dish is. We'll be enjoying it after a dinner of left-over lentil soup and homemade bread. Feel free to invite yourself over for dinner.
I'll admit that three kinds of cinnamon might just be showing off, and if you only have one kind at home, I can pretty much guarantee that this dish will still be a raging success.
It would probably be fabulous with the crust from my summer tree fruit pie. Hmm .... next time, PIE! This time, just pie filling ... Yes, I am apparently a child.
