The boys had a friend sleepover last night, and I was looking for something to make this morning for breakfast. Michael (very cute boy #2) reminded me about the cinnamon rolls recipe in Paula Deen’s My First Cookbook that he wanted to make. Michael has his own cooking blog (www.benton66.wordpress.com) Of course, I ended up making them so that he could go and play the XBox………
Anyway, the recipe involves crescent rolls and marshmallows – what’s not to love? It was really very easy, and, after I ate two of them, two of the other kids finished off the remaining six – not bad, huh? A lot of the marshmallow oozed out during the cooking process, but I think some of it sort of sinks into the dough while it cooks. I thought I would just post it as something quick and easy for the kids. Afterall, it IS in a kids’ cookbook!
Cinnamon Rolls (from Paula Deen’s My First Cookbook)
1 can refrigerated crescent rolls (8 rolls)
8 large marshmallows
Cinnamon sugar, made by mixing 1/2 cup sugar with 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Preheat oven to 375. Separate the dough into 8 triangles. Place 1 marshmallow right in the middle of each triangle. Sprinkle each marshmallow with some of the cinnamon sugar (I sprinkled the whole inside of the triangle w/the marshmallow w/cinnamon sugar). Bring up all fo the sides of the roll to completely cover the marshmallow, pinching all of the edges together so that none of the marshmallow shows.
Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Place the rolls on the parchment paper, making sure none of them are touching. Sprinkle with more cinnamon sugar. Bake the rolls for about 10 minutes, until they are light brown and puffed up. Serve warm.
