Cinnamon Squares

I got this wonderful recipe from the book 'frame>by>frame Baking' from parragon books. I love this book because of frame by frame pictures. I tried this Cinnamon squares from the book and made lil changes. As i dont have sour cream i substituted lemon juice plus cream to it and also one more change i used flax seeds instead of sunflower seeds. I loved the sweet taste and flavour of cinnamon in it. They came out absolutely perfect.. light crust, crunchy on the top and soft inside. I simply loved the burst of cinnamon flavor in every bite.
