    conversion from cinnamon stick to ground cinnamon

    One teaspoon ground = 1 stick. Substitute any ground cinnamon. According to www.gourmetsleuth.com

    I quote from www.foodsubs.com (an awesome website by the way!): "cinnamon Equivalents: One cinnamon stick yields 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon."

    I would have to say it depends on what you're making. There are some recipes that call for cinnamon stick where ground cinnamon wouldn't be a good substitute (A pudding recipe, or a drink, for example).

    If you don't want brown flecks in what you're making, then ground cinnamon won't do. The stick cinnamon will impart the flavor without the flecks. You're making a drink and so you might not want to use ground cinnamon because it might be gritty or overpowering.

    Ground cinnamon will work in doughs, batters, and cookies, but it won't be a great substitute in fillings, drinks, puddings, etc.
