Who doesn’t love cinnamon rolls? Cinnamon rolls are so delicious, and really not that hard to make – but they do take a long time. Sometimes three hours start to finish. So when a cinnamon roll craving hits, it’s pretty hard to satisfy it immediately. That’s why you should make these super easy cinnamon twists – they start with refrigerated breadsticks, so they’re crazy fast – you can have a batch ready in under half and hour. They’re crazy easy too! – A fun day with your younger and older kids!
Here’s how easy it is to make them:
1 Can refrigerated breadstick dough (12 breadsticks)
3 tablespoons butter
2/3 cup sugar
1.5 tablespoons cinnamon
2oz cream cheese
2/3 cup powered sugar
2 teaspoons milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
1 – mix cinnamon and sugar on a plate. melt butter in a bowl.
2 – unroll breadsticks and stretch slightly, dip in butter.
3 – roll in cinnamon and sugar.
4 – fold breadstick in half and twist together.
5 – bake, frost, and eat!
Be sure to make a very simple frosting from softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla. As long as you soften the cream cheese in the microwave, you can just stir the frosting ingredients together with a whisk or beater (it will seem clumpy and thick and first, but after a few seconds of stirring it will come together).
