Cinnamon Toast, the Pioneer Woman Way
Thanks to The Pioneer Woman Cook’s blog, I’ve found a wholly different and far better way to make cinnamon toast. I made it for my husband, this morning, and he loved it. I must admit, that I do too. The end result yielded buttery, crunchy, cinnamon loaded goodness!
- 8 slices bread (whole wheat is great!)
- 1 stick salted butter, softened
- 1/2 cup sugar (more to taste
- 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (more to taste)
- 1/4 teaspoons ground nutmeg (optional)
Preparation time 5mins
Cooking time 8mins

Preheat oven to 350°F.
Smush softened butter with a fork. Dump in sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg, if using. Stir to utterly combine.
Spread on slices of bread, utterly covering the surface all the way to the edges.
Place toast on a cookie sheet. Place cookies sheet into the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Turn on the broiler and broil until golden brown and bubbling. Watch so it won’t burn!
Remove from oven and cut slices into halves diagonally.
UPDATE: I have found that using my toaster oven is a faster/easier way, when making this for two people. I toast the bread, until just before it is golden brown. I then slather on the cinnamon-butter and turn the toaster oven to “broil”. Watch is, carefully, and remove just as the topping begins to bubble. This way, I do not have “soggy bread syndrome” on the bottom. Works great!
