Recipe: Weekday Morning Cinnamon Rolls

Who doesn’t love a warm cinnamon roll fresh from the oven to start their day?  I know I do, but the act of making fresh cinnamon rolls is daunting.  You’d have to wake-up at 3am just to enjoy the rolls by the time the kids are heading out the door.  So, when I stumbled upon a recipe for Cinnamon Toast Rolls from Circle B’s Kitchen I was smitten.  I whipped up a batch and my boys were gobbling down cinnamon rolls, on a weekday (gasp!).  This recipe is one part cinnamon toast and one part cinnamon roll, but 100% delicious.

Weekday Morning Cinnamon Rolls

Fresh, soft white bread (a slice per roll-up)
Melted Butter
Cinnamon Sugar

Powdered Sugar

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Cut the crusts from the bread and roll thin with a rolling pin. Brush melted butter on both sides of the flattened bread then sprinkle one side with the cinnamon sugar mixture. Make sure to cover the side well.

To Roll: Fold each end of the bread to the middle and then roll length-wise. Place in a mini-muffin tin and sprinkle the tops with a little more cinnamon sugar.

Place in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until the edges are turning golden brown. Remove from the oven and drizzle with icing.
