Mini Cinnamon Rolls!

What do we want? Cinnamon Rolls! When do we want them? In approximately 8 minutes.

These were definitely a quick and easy snack.  Are they as good and fresh, homemade, oversized cinnamon rolls? No.  But they are a great fix for that sweet cinnamon craving without all the effort of home made.  Plus, they are mini.  Who doesn’t love mini bites!

Mini Cinnamon Rolls with Maple Icing

Makes 16 mini cinnamon rolls

Recipe from Iowa Girl Eats

Ingredients:

1-8oz tube crescent roll dough
2 Tablespoons butter
cinnamon
brown sugar

For the maple icing:
1 teaspoon maple syrup
1 Tablespoon skim milk
3/4 cup powdered sugar

Directions:

Preheat oven according to crescent roll dough package directions. Layout half the dough (4 triangles) and pinch all the seams together. Flip over and pinch the seams on the back side together too.

Using a rolling pin, smooth the seams and roll the dough into a square about 1/4″ thick. Brush with half the butter, and sprinkle with as much cinnamon and brown sugar as you want. Roll into a log and cut into 8 pieces.

Place mini cinnamon rolls into a non-stick sprayed mini muffin tin. Repeat steps 1 and 2 with the other half of the crescent roll dough. Bake according to package directions.

Meanwhile whisk together maple syrup and milk in a bowl. Add in powdered sugar until desired consistency is reached. Drizzle over warm cinnamon rolls.
