Simple and very good - best served warm.

These are, weirdly, pretty tasty. I made 1/2 the recipe with some soft white Nature's Own brand bread. I used whipped cream cheese and butter with canola oil, which helps cut back the sat. fat some. I always have some cinnamon sugar mixed up, in my cubard, so I just used that. To flatten the bread, I just used my fingers and it worked fine. Mine baked in the 12 minutes. They make a nice little breakfast treat. They are not too sweet. It is like eating cinnamon toast with a small lightly sweetened bite of cheesecake. The only thing is, they really are only best straight out of the oven warm.
