Can you substitute ground cinnamon for cinnamon sicks?

What are you making? Frequently, the cinnamon sticks are removed from the final product, so you are really extracting cinnamon oil from the sticks when cooking/preparing and then removing the sticks. You certainly can substitute (and I've heard 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon for one 3 to 4 inch stick but don't know if that's true) -- the most likely impact could be appearance. The pieces of ground cinnamon won't dissolve in the final product in the same way the extracted oil will. If appearance isn't a concern -- substitute away!

SeaJambon has covered the potential effect of substitution; this chart, which someone kindly pointed me toward when I had an equivalency question recently, will tell you what the equivalent is: http://www.e-cookbooks...
