I know that technically it is still summer for another month or so, but my kids went back to school last week. That means I am ready for all things fall, especially cooler weather. It was 106 yesterday, and frankly that is too hot for me. And even though I wasn’t totally ready for summer to end, I’m ready now. Bring on the cold rain, crackling leaves, and a fire in the fireplace every evening.

When I think of fall cinnamon comes to mind. Apples too, but really it is cinnamon that I love, and these snickerdoodle pancakes pack some serious cinnamon flavor. Plus, when it comes to breakfast, can you really go wrong with pancakes that taste like cookies? I don’t think so.
