**All recipes have been tested on my husband and son :)
Cinnamon Vanilla Creme Syrup:
1 c. corn syrup
1 c. granulated sugar
1/4 c. water
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. evaporated milk
In a small saucepan combine corn syrup, sugar, water and cinnamon. Bring to a boil for 2 minutes. Turn off heat and stir in vanilla. Let cool for 5 minutes. Stir in evaporated milk. Once cool, pour into your choice of gift giving container. Keep refridgerated. (I used 2 jelly jars)
I love the color of this syrup and you can see the flecks of cinnamon throughout it so, to dress it up, I kept it very simple.
I traced the inside circle of the lid onto a decorative paper from the Huntington collection. I wrapped some landscaping twine around the jar - you could use many things for this: Ribbon, torn fabric, burlap, raffia...you get the idea :) Then I stamped a leaf from the Fall Harvest stamp set in Ponderosa Pine ink and fussy cut it out. I attached it to the twine with a glue dot.
I think these turned out so pretty and so yummy! I served ours over cinnamon waffles for breakfast this morning. I would have gotten a pic, but they were devoured. LOL
Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!!!
