Cinnamon Sugar Madeline Cookies

Adapted from Nancy Fuller’s Cinnamon Sugar Madelines

These are quick and easy cookies as long as you have a Madeline pan. The dough is really more like a cake batter than a cookie dough. They go so well with tea or coffee in the morning! You can certainly fancy them up by dipping them in chocolate or drizzling them with other things. But to be honest, the simple taste of cinnamon and sugar is my favorite.
