Cinnamon Crisps

A microwave recipe that I saw at Cakes And More .  Nice and simple.  If you like rusks but hate the cardamommy flavour that most of the store bought ones have - than you should try this.  And you can experiment with them.  Make it with brown or white bread.  And great use of stale bread that might be just lying there.

Ingredients -
Brown Bread - 4 slices - you can use white too
Unsalted butter - 1 tbsp
Powdered sugar - 2 tbsp
Cinnamon Powder - 1/2 tsp

Mix the butter, sugar and cinnamon.  Apply on both sides of the slices.
Stack the slices.  And cut them into vertical strips. Four strips - 16 in all
Even sized strips ensure even cooking.

Take a microwave safe plate.  Place the strips only along the perimeter of the plate.
Do not place anything in the centre and those would cook faster and you could end up with some burnt ones.
(So you may need to make them in batches - maybe 3 or more)

Set the microwave on high for 2 - 2 1/2 minutes.  Keep a close eye as anything done in the microwave to avoid burnt sticks.
Take the plate out.  Even if they seem soft, they will harden as they cool.
Remove from plate and cool thoroughly if you have enough left to store.  And keep them in an airtight container.

A tip from Cakes and More- you can make savoury ones too.  Use herbs and salt in the butter instead of sugar.  If you do like cardamom, replace cinnamon with it.  You can experiment and have the best home made crisps in record time.  Original recipe - here
