Cinnamon Coffee

DSC_5850 We had this with our breakfast this morning, and it is SOOOOO yum.  It is a must try!  I adapted this recipe slightly from one in a J. Fluke book.

Ingredients

Coffee
Water
1 t. ground cinnamon, more or less
2 cinnamon sticks
1/4 c. brown sugar, more or less
Whipped cream or cool whip, optional

Directions

Add as much coffee to your maker as you would normally use for a full pot.  (For our 12 cup maker, I used about 1 cup of ground coffee.  Do this to your taste).  Leave about 1 cup of water in the pot, but pour the rest in the top part of the coffeemaker as you normally would.  Add the 1 t. cinnamon to the coffee filter with your coffee grounds.  I didn’t measure—it doesn’t have to be exact.  Add the 2 cinnamon sticks and the brown sugar (again I didn’t measure it) to the bit of water in the coffee pot.  Start the coffee maker.  Before serving, give the coffee a good stir.  As it sits it becomes even more flavorful.  Serve with a bit of whipping cream or cool whip on top.  Enjoy!
