Cinnamon Syrup

Maybe it's the holidays or maybe I'm just missing my mom. I've been craving things from my childhood lately. My mom made this syrup for us whenever we had french toast as kids. It is so sugary, cinnamony yummy. We also discovered this morning that it is excellent on pumpkin pancakes.

1 c. granulated sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 c. light corn syrup
1/4 c. water
1/2 c. light cream or evaporated milk

In a small saucepan, combine sugar and cinnamon. Add corn syrup and water. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook and stir 2 minutes more. Remove from heat and cool for 5 minutes. Stir in cream/milk. Serve warm over French toast or pancakes. Makes 1-2/3 cup.
