Mini Cinnamon Rolls

Need a sweet treat for breakfast in a flash?

How about a cute little snack for the kids, or something soft and gooey to go with your afternoon coffee or tea?

These little babies are heaven!  The best part?  They are semi-homemade, or you can call it speed-scratch cooking at it's finest.  I just LOVE cinnamon, so these little treats are perfect in my book.  When you don't want to spend all that time making wonderful old fashioned cinnamon rolls, these are the best substitute.  You could throw these together for guests in a flash.

All you need is a mini muffin tin, a can of breadstick dough and a little time.  These perfect little bites of cinnamon goodness come together quickly.  With the pre-made and pre-cut dough, half the battle is done!  Just unroll the dough, spread on some softened butter, and sprinkle on a mix of cinnamon and sugar and roll them up!  By placing them in mini muffin tin it helps them from spreading out.

See how cute they turned out.  I just drizzled them with a little powdered sugar glaze and I was blissfully happy.  Try these, I'm sure everyone will thank you for them!

Enjoy some this weekend...they will make your day!

Mini Cinnamon Rolls

makes 12 rolls

1 can pre-made dough for breadsticks, such as Pillsbury
1/3 c butter softened
3 T sugar
1 1/2 t cinnamon (I like my with a little more cinnamon, adjust to your taste)
4 T powdered sugar
1-2 T milk

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Unroll can of dough. Separate out the breadsticks, lying them flat.  Spread softened butter down one side of each breadstick.  Mix sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl.  Sprinkle cinnamon/sugar mix on top of the butter.  Starting with one end roll up the breadstick.

Place cut side down in one section of a mini muffin tin.  Continue rolling each breadstick.  Bake for 20 min or until golden brown.  Allow to cool 10 minutes.  If desired, stir together powdered sugar and milk to make a glaze.  Drizzle over each cinnamon roll and serve.
