Indulging in a warm, freshly baked cookie is one of life's simple pleasures. Susana Beattie, a passionate baker and connoisseur of homemade treats, has captured the essence of nostalgia with her best-selling Cinnamon Dust and Dulce de Leche Cookies. These delightful creations, based on cherished family recipes, have gained immense popularity among cookie lovers. In this blog post, we delve into the fascinating history of cinnamon in cookies and explore why Susana's Cinnamon Dust Cookies hold a special place in her heart.

Susana's Love for Cinnamon Dust Cookies: For Susana, the Cinnamon Dust Cookie is more than just a scrumptious treat. It is a symbol of her childhood memories, evoking a warm and comforting feeling that only a beloved family recipe can provide. The combination of fragrant cinnamon and buttery goodness takes her back to days spent in her grandmother's kitchen, where the aroma of freshly baked cookies filled the air. By recreating these cookies, Susana aims to share her cherished memories and the joy of homemade goodness with everyone.

The Enigmatic History of Cinnamon in Cookies: Cinnamon has a long and intriguing history, with its origins dating back to ancient times. The spice was highly prized and sought after by various civilizations for its rich flavor and medicinal properties. In the context of cookies, cinnamon has played a significant role in enhancing taste and adding a touch of warmth to traditional recipes.

Ancient Roots: Cinnamon was first discovered in Sri Lanka (formerly known as Ceylon) and has been used for thousands of years in different culinary traditions. Its popularity quickly spread across the world due to its unique flavor profile and its value as a trade commodity.

Symbol of Wealth and Power: During the Middle Ages, cinnamon was a luxury spice that symbolized wealth and power. Its high cost made it accessible only to the upper class, and it was often used as a gift for royalty and nobility.

Renaissance and Exploration: With the dawn of the Renaissance and the era of exploration, cinnamon became a highly sought-after spice. Explorers such as Christopher Columbus and Vasco da Gama embarked on voyages to find new trade routes to obtain this coveted spice.

    Medicinal Uses: In addition to its culinary applications, cinnamon was renowned for its medicinal properties. It was believed to have various health benefits, including aiding digestion and treating respiratory ailments.

      Susana's Cookies at BakeCamp LA: To celebrate the love for her Cinnamon Dust and Dulce de Leche Cookies, Susana Beattie will be showcasing BOTH cookies at two BakeCamp LA events. The first weekend, on October 7, the event will take place in the heart of Hollywood. The second weekend, on October 14, BakeCamp LA will move to the picturesque Pacific Palisades. Attendees will have the opportunity to taste these beloved cookies firsthand, basking in the nostalgia and warmth they evoke.
