Cinnamon Roll Dippers

Thick and soft cinnamon roll dippers, served with a cream cheese glaze drizzled with a cinnamon mixture. I’ve been craving cinnamon rolls for a few weeks now, and just have’t had the time to make them. All that rising with regular cinnamon rolls keeps me pretty locked down to my house for that morning. I came across this recipe from Creme de le Crumb last weekend or so and needed to try them!  With these cinnamon roll dippers there is no yeast – which means no waiting around for it to rise! Yahoo! Although it does have to sit in the fridge for about 15 minutes, which is no time at all if you’re good at making a mess in the kitchen like I am. Its the perfect amount of time to tidy up, get the cooking sheet ready and to get all the glaze items out! You can prepare these the day before and let the dough sit in your fridge over night – I would bake them for an extra minute or so, keeping an eye on them though. The best part about these? You can get cream cheese glaze on every bite! These are a perfect treat for a weekend morning! Enjoy these warm or at room temperature!
