I made these awhile ago before I started making my own cinnamon rolls on a regular basis. This recipe uses crescent roll dough or ready to roll croissant dough with a cinnamon sugar filling rolled into the middle.
Push pop containers are not necessary for this recipe. They can easily be served on a plate. Be careful these one bite cinnamon rolls are seriously addictive.
1 can crescent dough or other canned croissants
1 tbs cinnamon
2 tbs brown sugar
2 tbs sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup icing sugar
1 tbs milk
drop of vanilla
- Preheat the oven to 375 F/190 C. Unroll the dough and cut into 4 equal sections. In a small bowl combine the cinnamon and sugars.
- Brush one quarter of the butter all over one of the dough rectangles. Sprinkle one fourth of the cinnamon sugar over top. Starting with the wide side roll the dough like a log tightly. Repeat with the three remaining dough rectangles.
- Cut the dough into 1/3 inch slices. Place into a greased muffin tin and bake for 8 minutes.
- In a small bowl whisk together the icing sugar, milk and vanilla. Drizzle on top of the baked rolls. Stack 3 or 4 rolls in each push pop.
