Cinnamon Syrup

Step 1: Gather any store-bought syrup in your home.
Step 2: Place them all in a cardboard box. Put that box within a box.
Step 3: Seal it up and put your address on it.  
Step 4: Mail it to yourself.
Step 5: When it arrives, smash it with a hammer.

Seriously though, folks.  This syrup is the bee's knees.  The bear's hairs.  The cat's hat.  The owl's bowel.  It is so easy and delicious.  I don't know if I can ever use another syrup.  I served it to my kids.  As I was finishing up making the rest of the pancakes, I looked back at them.  Their sticky faces were plastered all over the plate and licking it clean.  How could you get mad at those cute sticky faces?  

Serve this syrup over some homemade buttermilk pancakes.  Don't you dare make the Bisquick ones!  Those are nothing more than dry, nasty, super round and flat biscuits.  

Cinnamon Syrup

1 c sugar
1/2 c light corn syrup
1/4 c water
3/4 t ground cinnamon
5 oz evaporated milk

In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the sugar, light corn syrup, water, and cinnamon.  Bring to a boil.  Stir for two minutes.  Remove from the heat.  Stir in the evaporated milk.
