Cinnamom Sticks - Day 4 of blogging marathon

       Today is the fourth day of  "7 days Blogging marathon "  started by Srivalli.Today I have selected the theme "Kids friendly recipe".Today I am going to present u ,my sons favourite,Cinnamon sticks.This recipe has a long recap .
          We used to go to a mall near grapevine.Whenever ,we go there,we used to buy cinnamon sticks in "Annie and auntie" store.They have wonderful cinnamon sticks,which will be very warm,soft and sprinkled with lot of cinnamon sugar.My son loves it a lot and a very big fan of it.So whenever we go there,I used to watch the girl making cinnamon sticks.She is very profesional and used to prepare 25 to 30 sticks within 10 mins.I used to watch her.This gave me an inspiration and started searching for recipes.Once ,I came to know that, pizza dough can be used to prepare these sticks.So this marathon gave me a chance to recreate those we had in that store.
             My hubby was delighted after having those spongy cinnamon sticks and rohith started sprinkling cinnamon - sugar mixture and njoyed well.Give it a try, ur kids will surely njoy.




Ingredients:


For the dough:
1.All purpose flour               -                 1 1/2 cup
2.Yeast                                  -                 3/4 tsp
3.Luke warm water                -                1/2 cup plus 1 tbsp
4.Salt                                      -                1/2 tsp
5.Oil                                       -                1 1/2 tbsp

For dusting:
1.Sugar                                   -               3 tbsp
2.Cinnamon    pwdr                -               1 tsp
3.Butter                                   -               2 tbsp

Method:

For the dough:
* Take a cup add yeast and warm water.Let it dissolve becoming a frothy liquid.
* Take a mixing bowl,add the flour,salt and yeast water.
*  Knead it into a soft dough by addin oil to it.
*  Let it sit there covered by plastic wrap for 2 - 3 hrs or untill it doubles.


Shaping:
* After 3 hrs,take out the dough and knead it again,without any cracks.
* Divide the dough into small equal parts and roll it as  shown above.
* Make sure the length is even.But I had some irregularities ,which I wud concentrate next time.
* If we roll them in large bulky piece,then it wud blow bigger after baking.So inorder to get a stick like shape ,roll them thinly.

Baking:
* Take a cup and mix sugar and cinnamon pwdr together.
* Take a cookie sheet, grease with butter and arrange the sticks in a row ,with intervals.
* Now brush the sticks with butter and sprinkle the cinnamon mixture.
* Keep the remaining pwdr for giving a final touch.
* Pre heat the oven for 400 degrees and keep the tray and bake for 10 - 12 mins or untill it turns golden brown.
* After 5 mins,take out the tray and brush it again with butter.
* This helps the sticks to retain its softness.



Serving tips:
* We can bake it days ahead .
* While serving,just heat it in the microwave ,sprinkle some sugar and serve.
My son loved it a lot.Its bcoz ,lot of sugar sprinkled on it.

Note:
We can also brush with cold water instead of using butter.The reason is ,we need a binding agent thats it.It can either be butter or cold water.But I prefer butter,as it gives that color and texture.
