Cinnamon chips can sometimes be hard to find in a grocery store.  Cinnamon chips are easy to make and better than the bought ones.  You can add these homemade chips to breads and most baking recipes.  They are not good for candy.  This is an easy recipe, the chips keep well in an airtight bag or container in a cool spot in the pantry or refrigerator.  It depends on how much you like cinnamon as to how much you add to a recipe.  If you only like a hint of cinnamon, add just a small handful but for a loaf of bread, muffins or cakes, I would add at least a cup of chips.

3/4 cup white granulated sugar

2 tablespoons shortening (I used Crisco)

3 tablespoons ground cinnamon

2 tablespoons honey

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Combine and mix with a spoon until sticks together,  the sugar, shortening, cinnamon, honey and vanilla extract.  Spread out on a cookie sheet covered with foil or parchment paper.  I just used my hands and spread to about 1/4 inch thick like in the photos below.  Bake in preheated 200 degree oven for 35 minutes.  If you see some oil ooze out around the chips that is o.k.  Remove after 35 minutes and let cool completely before cutting in small pieces about the size of regular chips you would buy in the store.  Makes about 1 1/2 cups.  Enjoy!
