Cinnamon Toast Rolls

I found this amazing recipe of Cinnamon Toast Rolls yesterday and had to make it for breakfast this morning and it turned out amazing!!

In honor of their ancestry, I call these little gems cinnamon toast rolls, and here’s all you need to make them…

Yep.  That’s it… some soft white bread, some butter and some cinnamon sugar.  And here’s all you have to do…

Trim the crusts off of the bread

Roll the bread really flat

Brush both sides of the bread with butter

Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar

Roll in any fashion you like (I’ve also folded them into little triangles)

Place in a mini muffin tin (or if you’ve folded them, place them on a baking sheet).  Sprinkle them with a little more cinnamon sugar and bake them.

What transpires as these bake is that the outside gets just a little crispy and the inside stays sort of soft and cinnamon-y and each bite is just a heavenly little bit of cinnamon toast or cinnamon roll or something altogether different from either.  Doesn’t matter.  They’re just good..

a dozen or so slices of very soft, fresh white bread
melted butter
cinnamon sugar

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Cut the crusts from a slice of bread and roll until very thin. Spread both sides of the bread with melted butter and then sprinkle one side with the cinnamon sugar, making sure to cover very well.  Fold each side into the middle and then gently roll up and place in a buttered mini muffin tin.  Sprinkle with a little more cinnamon sugar.  Alternately, you can fold the bread into a triangle, and then fold into another smaller triangle and place on a parchment-covered baking sheet.

When all of the rolls are made, bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until they are just starting to turn golden brown and get a little crisp.  Remove from the muffin tin to cool slightly before serving.

If desired, drizzle with some icing made with powdered sugar that’s been moistened with a little milk.

These freeze really well.  To reheat, place briefly in a microwave to thaw and then bake in a low oven (250 or 300 until warm and slightly crisp.  Alternately, you can reheat them in foil in the oven.
