Cinnamon Turkey Breast with Molasses Glaze

1 fresh turkey breast
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons molasses
2 tablespoons sherry vinegar or strong red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon Tabasco

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Pat breast dry and rub with salt, pepper, and cinnamon. Place in roasting pan in oven, skin side up.

Combine all ingredients for glaze and mix well. After 30 minutes of roasting, lightly brush skin with glaze; continue to glaze every 30 minutes. The breast will take approximately 2 hours to cook. To test for doneness, either insert quick-reading thermometer into thickest part of breast (it will read 150 to 160 degrees when done) or insert metal skewer or small knife into thickest part of breast for 5 seconds (tip will feel very warm but not hot to the touch when done).

Remove from oven. Let cool 20 to 30 minutes before carving. Serves 6.
