Cinnamon Cream Cheese Roll-Ups


Holy lord.  My mom emailed me this recipe last week, so I made it for the kids this weekend while The Dad was gone.  Did I mention holy lord?  Wow.  They were really good hot out of the oven, but they didn't suck even a little bit the next day at room temp.  I should rename them, White Girl Churros.  'Cause they're crispy.  And taste fried.  And have cinnamon and sugar smothered all over the outside of them.  Sold yet?  How's about some cream cheese frosting in the middle?  Yeah, they're good.  In fact, hang on a sec.....


...okay, I'm back.  I decided I should be eating one while I write this post.  As a service to you.  And FYI, the one I'm chewing as my fingers type is straight outta the fridge and it still doesn't suck.

Go here for the recipe:  Cinnamon Cream Cheese Roll-Ups

Here they are coming together at my house:

Cream cheese and powdered sugar, aka, frosting.



Cinnamon and sugar.
 

White bread with the crust cut off and flattened with a rolling pin.
Yep, white bread.
 

Sweetened cream cheese spread on said bread.
 

Rolled up and drowned in melted butter, then rolled in the cinnamon-sugar mix.





Baked until they're crispy and browned.
See all that crystallized butter and sugar around the outsides of all of them?
Yeah, you're gonna wanna eat that.




Here's breakfast:


 Did anyone notice the little face in the last picture?






These got more votes than the day before, Apple German Pancake, breakfast from the little people, but really, who can blame them?

Before I go, as an FYI, the recipe calls for a 16oz loaf of bread.  
Mine was 20-something ounces and I needed it all for the amount of cream cheese, and I still have some left over.  
So either cut the cream cheese amount in half or plan on using more bread.  
I also had cinnamon-sugar left over, but we use it for toast, so that didn't bother me.  
You could cut it in half if you don't think you'll use the leftovers.
I'm off to eat another one.....

Update 2015:

For those of you having trouble accessing the original recipe site, here ya go:

Ingredients
1 loaf (16 ounces) thinly sliced white bread, crusts removed
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup confectioners sugar
1 cup sugar
1-1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cup butter, melted

Directions
Flatten bread with a rolling-pin. In a bowl, combine cream cheese and confectioners’ sugar. In another bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon; set aside. Spread about 1 tablespoon of cheese mixture on each slice of bread. Roll up, jelly roll style. Dip in melted butter, then in cinnamon-sugar. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 16 roll-ups.

  11. I have made these often, sooo easy and kids love them. When the kids were little I cut them into smaller pop in the mouth size. They liked to get involved by doing the bread. They're teens now and still a favorite!

    1. Cutting them into smaller pieces is a great idea, Marsha! And that would give me license to eat even more, right? :)

    2. I know this isn't current but if you see this, did you have any problem with the filling leaking out? Did you cut into bite size before or after baking?

  12. This sounds so simple, but SO good. I will be making this very soon. I was thinking I should find someone to share them with considering we have too few dessert eaters in our house. But, then again, I can be selfish sometimes. This sounds like a good time to try it out.

  14. Mine busted open during the cooking, is there something I can do to avoid this and still get as crispy as desired?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. A few of mine opened a bit toward the ends, and I think it was because the bread wasn't rolled out as big. I've made them twice now and I think the key is to use really fresh bread and to make sure it's rolled out as large as you can get it. The more times it's rolled over on itself, the less chance it has of opening. Hope that helps!

  20. Hey Mindy, I had pinned this a while ago, and finally had a chance to make them this morning! Holy cow, who knew white bread could be so good! Everybody loved them! I felt bad about throwing out the crusts, so I dumped them in the leftover butter and shook them up in a bag with the cinnamon sugar. They are in the oven now. Hoping they turn out like little cinnamon croutons!

    1. We're a wheat bread household, too. Someone commented above that they used wheat. I don't see why it wouldn't be just as good, as long as you use something soft, without a bunch of nuts and seeds in it. Just plain old whole wheat would be perfect. Let me know how they turn out!

  50. I needed to make these ahead so I followed the directions until it came to dipping them in melted butter. Instead I spread the regular butter onto the rolls, dipped them in the cinnamon mix, and placed them in a plastic container. I sprinkled a little extra cinnamon mix on each layer in the plastic container. They turned out great...Phyllis.
