I hesitate to share this with true foodies because it’s really more about cute, but I have to! Is this the tastiest cinnamon bun ever? Probably not. Is it the cutest? Yes! Life is better in mini. Add a stick and my heart can’t take it. Adapt this to your favorite recipe, but here’s a really easy starter adapted from the Artisan Bread cookbook that brought this adorable mini-stick idea to their state fair.
1. Roll out crescent dough sheet. (You can also use crescent rolls and press the seams together, or your own homemade dough.)
2. Sprinkle the brown sugar over everything but about 1/2-inch of one long edge (this will be the end of your seam when you roll up your buns, and you want it to stick firmly).
3. Sprink cinnamon over the brown sugar.
4. Roll dough in a spiral roll towards the edge left plain.
5. Pull dough to about the size of a broom handle.
6. Cut 3/4-inch pieces.
7. Place in a greased mini muffin pan. You should have about 24.
8 . Place in a 350-degree oven for fifteen minutes.
9. Pull out right away and insert a stick. The brown sugar should harden quickly and hold the stick in place. Let rolls cool completely.
10. Combine powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk to make the icing. Drizzle over the top of the rolls with a fork, and let dry. You can also melt white chocolate instead of the icing if you want to bag these up individually.
Another alternative would be making your favorite cinnamon roll recipe in the mini form, and threading them on sticks, placing them on a platter with the icing in a bowl next to your bouquet for guests to dip their rolls in before eating.
This Low Fat Banana, Date & Nut Bread may be low on fat, but it’s not low on flavor! It’s perfect to enjoy with that morning tea or coffee. This recipe makes two loaves, one to eat now, and one to put in the freezer to enjoy later.
Better than Starbucks makes!
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
