An internet search returns the fact that brittle means easily broken, cracked, or snapped. MY version of cinnamon brittle was more about breaking a tooth. Cooked to 340 degrees as instructed, this was very, very hard. However, if allowed to melt in your mouth for a moment, it became cinnamon goodness.

At any time, I'm probably reading three books...one for fun, one about cooking, and one photography book.
