And yes, there is such a thing as a perfect ratio. You can’t just go throwing the two in a bowl and calling it good.

What Are The Best Spices For Making Your Own Seasonings and Spice Blends?

There’s no right or wrong brand. I will first say, buy what you can afford. However, not all spices are created equal as you tend to get what you pay for. Currently I use Morton & Bassett (not sponsored) because I find their spices to be top notch in texture, color and flavor. I love and respect what their company stands for not only with charitable work but also quality control. With that said some other wonderful brands I’ve used over the years are Simple Organic, Frontier Co-op and Penzys.

Measure and 1/2 cup of granulated sugar and 2 tablespoons cinnamon into a bowl.

Whisk together until there is no more lumps.

My sister (Hi Julie!) game me this baby whisk attached to my Christmas present just this past holiday. She told me she thinks it’s an ornament. No way! It’s a spice whisk now.

Want a more subtle cinnamon sugar?

Although this is called cinnamon sugar (and not sugar cinnamon 😉 ) I can understand that some may want a more mild cinnamon sugar. Try using 2 teaspoons cinnamon (in replace of 2 tablespoons) for a subtle cinnamon flavor.
