Mini Cini's and a Blog Spotlight

~ Congratulations ~
Holly from Day 2 Day With Holly J.
I am shining the Spotlight on your blog. I enjoy Holly's site so much, I try to stop by daily just to see what new things she has cooking. I came across Holly's site back in August when she posted her recipe for Homemade Pizza Hut's Original Pan Pizza Yummo I said!!!!! Holly always has such beautiful quotes at the top of her site. Anytime I am having somewhat of a difficult day, I can go to Holly's site and read her quotes and it always makes the day a bit brighter.
You should make a point to stop by and visit Day 2 Day with Holly J. her blog has such a nice inviting feeling to it. Holly has a couple recipes I really want to try my hand at specifically the Chicken Fajita Roll Ups and her recipe for Baked French Toast. I think that would be perfect for any of the upcoming holiday breakfasts.

My kiddos loved the Mini Cini's. The only problem was i did not make enough!!! I cut the recipe in half because I only had one can of crescent rolls. Carson thought they were the perfect size just for him, he called them Baby Cini's, just look at the picture below he just woke up and spotted the cini's he could hardly wait to try them. I thought the cream cheese and cinnamon filling was a great combination. I love recipes that utilize crescent roll dough I have a few posted on my blog. The possibilities are endless, I will definitely be making these Mini Cini's again.


I did not do a whole tutorial on this particular day, but i did get a few pictures. The recipe is pretty much self explanatory.

Cinni's all rolled up and ready to go into the oven.


Cooling ummmm we could hardly wait for them to cool so we could frost them.


Lets get to frosting I have some very impatient kiddos ready to eat.

a plate full of Cini's!!!!!



Mini Cini's


2 packages Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
(preferable the packages where it is one rolled sheet of pastry per package)
2 8oz packages softened cream cheese
1 Cup sugar
2 Tablespoons cinnamon
2-3 Tablespoons melted butter
1 ½ Cups powdered sugar
2-3 Tablespoons heavy cream (do not substitute)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Remove rolls from packaging. Unroll each of the dough pieces so they are in the shape of rectangles. Roll each individual into an even thinness. Place cream cheese, sugar and cinnamon into a medium bowl. Stir until well combined. Spread half of the cheese mixture onto one sheet of dough and half onto the other spreading evenly across dough leaving about ¼ inch border around edges. Roll dough as if you were making cinnamon rolls, ending with seam side down. Cut 1 inch pieces and place all 24 pieces into mini muffin tins. Brush each roll with melted butter and bake for 15-20 minutes or until slightly golden around edges and cooked through. 2. Transfer rolls to a cooling rack and cool completely. While cooling combine powdered sugar and heavy cream until thick and drizzle ready. With a spoon, drizzle icing over each roll.

Love the Mini Cini ideas however allergic to cream cheese, Is there anything you can recommend in it's place?

Tina at Mommy's Kitchen said... #

I would just leave out the cream cheese and use softened butter. Just spread the butter on the crescent roll dough and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. These are so good and so addicting.

Rebecca said... #

What can you use in place of the cream cheese as I'm allergic to it?

An even easier way of making mini cini's is cresent rolls, Biscoff Cookie spread or Trader Joes Cookie Butter spread on rolled out cresents and sprinkle cinnamon chips (available where the choc. chips are sold) roll up and slice with dental floss, cook and ice sooooo good and easy!
