Quick and Easy Sort of Cinnamon Rolls

Saturday, January 30, 2010

Well, cinnamon rolls were requested---we had none and I thought a truly homemade one might take more time than I was willing to put in to breakfast this morning....
So...SORT OF CINNAMON ROLLS were born! Here's how:

Equal parts brown sugar and reg. white sugar (I used about 1 1/2 tbsp of each)
1 tsp cinnamon (we like lots cinnamon)
Croissants from the tube

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Mix the brown sugar, white sugar and cinnamon up in a little finger bowl.
Unroll a croissant and sprinkle cinn/sugar mix over the length of it. Roll it up.

Bake them for about 10 min.

My kids thought I was AWESOME for making these! Also, I felt slightly better about serving these rather than actual cinnamon rolls bc there isn't a huge glob of icing on the top. I think next time I'll wrap up a slice or two of apple in each one just to take the nutrition factor up a notch. I seriously can't believe I have two cooking posts on here and only one sewing post...I'm usually not this innovative of a chef...I guess tapping into that creative side makes you creative all around!
I do have a sewing post...but this one was easy and the other one is more involved...I'll post it later, I promise!!
