Random Ramblings: { MINI CINNAMON ROLLS } recipe

Wednesday, July 25, 2012


A few weeks ago I came across a blog called Iowa Girl Eats
She made a mini version of a cinnamon roll, using cresent rolls.  YUM.  With the flaky softness from the cresent rolls and the yummy cinnamon and icing I just had to try these.  

Follow along as I show you how I made them.  

** Preheat oven to the temperature the cresent rolls say to use **

1. Take out the cresent rolls and pinch 4 triangles together to form a  rectangle.  (this will be half of the can) .
Make sure you pinch all the seems together on both sides.  

2. Paint the entire surface with melted butter. 

3. Cover with cinnamon

4. Sprinkle with sugar.  Here I used 2 - 3 packets of Truvia, a sugar substitute.  The original recipe called for brown sugar, but I didn't have any so I used Truvia.
And you could use regualar sugar here as well if you liked. 

5. Roll into a long cylinder like this.  

6. Slice them into little mini cinnamon rolls. I cut the entire roll in half, then cut each of those in half and then each of those sections in half again. So I got about 8 rolls out of each roll.    I first sprayed the mini muffin pan with non stick spray and then layed one roll into each spot.  
Bake according to the directions on the cresent roll package.  I kept a close eye on mine since they are so small I didn't want them to burn. 

7. While they are still warm add a simple icing to the top and let it soak and melt into the rolls.  

8. Take them out and let them finish cooling on a rack.  

9. Eat one yourself, because you will literally watch them disappear right before your eyes from the plate once your kids find out you made these.  

I did manage to grab a couple and try this fun idea on them.
I added a little Torani raspberry syrup to some of the icing and add to a few.  YUM.  Very sweet, but since they are bite size it wasn't too overwhelming.  

This is the syrup I used.

1-8oz tube crescent roll dough
2 Tablespoons butter
sugar or truvia

For the icing:
1 tblspn milk
3/4 cup powdered sugar
added option Truvia raspberry syrup

 These were so good, but they sure didn't last long at all.  Next time I am definately going to make a few batches.  These would be great to freeze and then you can pull out  a few to heat up for the kids.  

Do you have a cinnamon roll recipe you love?  Id love to hear what it is.
