Cinnamon sugar biscuits, also known as Snickerdoodle cookies, have been around for a long time. They are simple but addictive, which means that although they keep well for 10 to 14 days when stored in a tin, they are unlikely to last for more than a day or two in a house of cinnamon lovers.

It is also claimed that they are healthy because they use oatmeal (which is low in GI and contains antioxidants) and dark chocolate (everyone knows dark chocolate is good for you).
