Mini Cinnamon rolls

So in the mornings I am always looking for fast breakfasts that are filling for my boys because we are always so rushed to get out the door for school. This recipe is also great as a side for brunches or just as a yummy snack. I found this recipe over at picky palate.

Recipe adapted by me =D

One can Pillsbury refrigerated biscuits at least 10

5 tablespoons softened butter

1/4 cup packed light brown sugar

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 cup powdered sugar

5 to 6 tablespoons heavy cream

2 tsp of vanilla extract or any flavor you would like to add

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. This will help keep clean up easy.

2. Unroll biscuits onto a clean countertop and press out with fingers to about 3 inches wide. Spread each biscuit with 1/2 tablespoon of butter then top evenly with brown sugar and cinnamon. Starting at the bottom of each round, roll up jelly roll fashion with seam side down on countertop. Use a sharp knife and cut 1/2 inch slices and place onto prepared baking sheet. I cut 6 slices per biscuit making 60 small cinnamon rolls. Bake for 16 to 20 minutes, until light brown and cooked through. Remove from oven.

3. Place powdered sugar, heavy cream, & extract into a small bowl and whisk until smooth. Drizzle glaze over hot rolls. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.

The icing for this is so versatile. You could add orange juice tsp at a time for an orange flavor or you could melt some cream cheese and stir it into the frosting for that kind of flavoring. You really can do whatever you want with the frosting. Also get creative with the filling for the insides of the cinnamon rolls. You could add nutella or a little jam. Whatever you want to do you could.
