Cinnamon Toast

This is the best cinnamon toast I've ever had.  No joke.

I'm not particularly picky about my cinnamon toast like some people - it doesn't bother me in the least to toast a piece of bread, slather on some butter, sprinkle on some cinnamon sugar, and eat away. 

I cannot deny that this is far superior. I think it's the addition of vanilla - takes it over the top.

I did reduce the amount of butter called for in the original recipe - some restraint is a good thing!  It's still far from a health food but at least I feel a little better about it.      

Recipe (adapted from Ree - the Pioneer Woman)

12-13 pieces of whole wheat bread
1/2 stick butter, softened
1/4 c. sugar (or more if you want)
1-1/2 t. cinnamon
1 t. vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350°. 

Combine softened butter, sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla and mash together with a fork until well mixed. Spread about 1-2 t. evenly on each piece of bread.  
Place bread on a cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes.  Turn on the broiler and broil until golden brown.  Watch carefully so it doesn't burn!  It happens fast! 
Remove from oven and enjoy!
