Cinnamon Ornaments

My boys and I love to make these Cinnamon Ornaments each year.  Hanging from the Christmas Tree or attached to homemade gifts, they will be treasured by all who receive.




  Please do not eat the decorations.  ~wink~

Giant Cinnamon Roll


I love using frozen bread because, well, I am always in a rush!  Seems my days are gone before I know they have even started!

You'll need:  Loaf of frozen bread dough, brown sugar and ground cinnamon.

Last night I got out a loaf of frozen bread.  Sprayed a pan, and the loaf,  and placed in the refrigerator.

This morning I got, made the coffee, got the bread out.  Preheated oven to 350 degrees.  Patted dough into a rectangle.  Smeared margarine over the inside leaving room around the edges.  Sprinkled generously with brown sugar and cinnamon.

Rolled tight, tucking the ends in.  Pinched to seal.

Curled into a cinnamon roll shape on a greased cookie sheet.  Let rise for 15-20 minutes.  Cooked in preheated 350 degree oven for 8 minutes checked.  Topped with butter once it was browned.  Put back in oven and cooked until done...another 5 - 10 minutes or so.

As always, My oven cooks different than yours so check before my earliest times and cook accordingly.

My filling ran out so scooped it off the pan and drizzled over the roll.  Wait, if you can, then cut.  Best eaten with a fork!  <3 and HUgs!

Cinnamon Breakfast Rolls

I took Rhodes Dinner Rolls out to thaw for supper, put them in the refrigerator and somehow forgot to cook them.  Yes, I know….it doesn’t seem possible to forget something as delicious as yeast rolls.  But, I did! 
We had Chicken and Dumplings.  We ate way too much food.  Piled up on the couches and we all went to sleep.  All except my oldest, he went to bed after school because of a headache…darn allergies!  He woke me up at 8:30…hungry and thinking it was time to get ready for school.  After making him a sandwich, convincing him it was a long time until morning, getting the little ones ready for and put in bed, waking my husband and sending him to bed, getting myself ready for bed…I then sat on the couch again.  Yep, went back to sleep.

Cinnamon Roll Flower

My Boys wanted Cinnamon Rolls the other day and I wanted to try something different.  So...I got out a tube of grand size biscuits, made icing and cinnamon sugar.  Fixed up the the pieces for My Boys and this is what the result was.  Very good!  A crispy outside and yummy delight inside.  A bit of icing and cinnamon sugar in every bite!  Hope you like it and have fun making them!  ~hugs~

Cinnamon Roll Flower

1 tube of grand size biscuits
2 cups powdered sugar
(I used 2 cups powdered sugar for the ones pictured on the bottom.  The pieces were fatter,  easier, and stickier,  for My Boys to handle.  ~smiles~
I used 1/2 cup powdered sugar for thinner icing....1st photo)
2 Tablespoons milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract, optional
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 325 degrees

Grease muffin pan

Make Powdered Icing by mixing the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla (optional).  It will be thick...to thin, just add a drop of milk at a time.  Set aside

Make Cinnamon Sugar by mixing the cinnamon and brown sugar together.  Any left over keeps well in a zipper type plastic bag.

Stretch the biscuits out, not to thin. 
Spread icing on one biscuit, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. 
Top with another biscuit that is also topped with icing.  Seal edges. 
Cut into strips, then into shapes, sealing edges. 
Grease hands a tad.  Start with a piece to fill the bottom of the cup. 
Put strips around the sides and work you way up.  Use triangle shapes to resemble a flower or other fun shapes.

Makes 5 so you may want to double the recipe.

Bake for  12-16 minutes

First picture was made using thinner icing.  Either use less powdered sugar or more milk.   

Enjoy!

*I'm thinking easy here....Why not use a tube of cinnamon rolls, stretch, put icing  on, fold over, seal, and create!* 

I'd Love to see pictures of the ones you and your children make!  ~hugs~

This one was made with thin icing,



Boys made these...sticky fun!
