Description

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.

Ingredients

  • 1 can (8 Oz. Can) Pillsbury Crescent Dough Sheet
  • ½ cups Brown Sugar
  • 1-½ Tablespoon Cinnamon
  • 24 pieces Sucker Sticks
  • 1 cup Powdered Sugar
  • ½ teaspoons Vanilla
  • 1-½ Tablespoon Milk

Preparation

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.

Oh! I’ve made these before – I used the recipe from Artisan Bread in 5 min. a day website. Love them and they’re fun to share with neighbors.

After making these I realized that the dough should be doubled in this recipe or the sugar and cinnamon halved but once the adjustment is made they are great.
