Cinnamon Blossoms

It was a dull, drizzly day here so I found myself in the mood for the smell of cinnamon baking throughout the house.  Nothing smells more like fall to me....yummy!!

I pulled out some of my mom's old cookbooks and quickly decided on this recipe:

Cinnamon Blossoms

                2 cups flour               
  1/2 cup margarine
           4 tsp baking powder        
 1 cup milk
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp margarine (melted for dipping)
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

Combine flour, baking powder and salt.  Cut in margarine.  Stir in milk with fork to 
make a soft dough.  
Knead with hands, adding a little flour, if required. 
Roll out on floured surface to 1/2 inch thick.  
Cut with a 2-3 inch bun cutter.  
Brush with melted margarine and dip  each bun in a mixture of 
1/3 cup sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon.  
Snip each bun almost to center into 5 petals.  
Place half of a cherry in center.  
Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake for 15 minutes at 350*F for 10-12 minutes.

Here's are step-by-step snaps of how mine turned out.....
