My kitchen helper is spending most of his days in school and therefore his eating habits are expanding, for better or worse. Every morning we head to school early to sit with his friends in the cafeteria and enjoy a second round of “breakfast”. This is also a vital time for the moms to vent about morning challenges or cheer for morning triumphs. It’s a great way to start the day and has turned into a morning tradition. About three weeks ago a new offering was added to the “breakfast” menu. Pre-package small cinnamon rolls. Of course, since my kitchen helper loves any treat involving cinnamon it was spotted immediately. For weeks now it’s the most requested item and all of us parents shake our heads thinking of how the kids are going to be in their respective classrooms. Based on this new school obsession I wanted to find a homemade cinnamon roll treat that wasn’t pre-packaged. That’s when I found a Cinnamon Roll Cookies recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction. I knew I had to make these with my kitchen helper.
This treat is still not shy of sugar which is why I made a half batch and shared these new confections with his schoolmates. They were a hit and I highly recommend them for the upcoming holiday cookie season. A surefire crowd favorite. The recipe is a sugar cookie dough and assembled the way you would make a traditional cinnamon roll. The key here is refrigerating the dough for at least 2 hours before cutting and baking. A great way to tackle this two hour chill time is to make the cinnamon roll logs prior to picking up your kitchen helper from school so they can practice their cutting skills and cut each round when they get home. They will be mesmerized by the circle of cinnamon and luckily they only take 12 minutes to bake. With or without glaze, these are sure to please. I wonder what treat we will discover this week?
