Cinnamon Rolls in any form are a common occurrence in our house. Probably for two reasons:
1. They are good.
2. It's pretty much a guarantee that both my kids will eat them and that makes this mamma very happy.
I posted about our cinnamon roll obsession a few months ago, if you want other cinnamon roll recipes, but I really like this one because it is so easy and they freeze incredibly well. Everything is easy about them. . . and even easier if you stock them in your freezer for a Monday morning when your youngest decides to wake up at 5:30 to start his day (true story). These bake in the oven while you get ready and you can even eat them as you walk out the door, depending on how quickly you need to leave. We ate them at the table, with some time to spare. That was great!
I didn't use measurements. This is definitely a winging it recipe, so go with what you like. In a large cereal bowl stir together some cinnamon, white sugar, and brown sugar. In a smaller bowl, melt a stick of butter.
Roll out some pie dough. You can make your own. . . or you can be lazy like me, and buy some good old Pillsbury pre-made dough. I usually roll it out a but thinner than the traditional circle. That way you can get more out of it. I use this tool to cut out my rectangles, but you can use any square or circle cookie cutter you want.
Cinnamon Roll Pop Tarts
1 stick of butter
Preheat oven to 350.
Combine cinnamon, brown sugar, and white sugar in a cereal bowl. Set aside.
Roll out pie dough to desired thickness.
Punch out dough with press or cookie cutter. Brush with butter and sprinkle with sugar mixture.
Top with another cut out and seal according to package directions or with a fork.
Bake for about 10-20 minutes, or until golden brown.
Mix together 1/2 cup of powdered sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon and a couple of splashes of milk.
Spoon over warm pop tarts and let cool until safe to eat.
These are great frozen.
