Bite-Sized Cinnamon Treats
We LOVE cinnamon rolls in our family!
Fortunately, I have a 1 hour recipe that is incredible, but when we don’t even have an hour, I love to make these cinnamon roll bites because they’re simple, quick and taste just like cinnamon rolls!
These bite-sized cinnamon treats taste so good straight out of the oven when they’re warm and gooey! AND they’re perfect for special mornings – birthdays, holidays, weekend.
When you’re looking for cinnamon goodness but are short on time, these bites are AMAZING!
only 10 minutes of prep!
The reason these are so quick and easy to make is because you use the canned biscuit dough you buy at the store. The steps are so simple, it only takes like 10 minutes to prepare.
PREP. Preheat oven to 350. Grease 8×8 pan. Place cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl and mix well. Set aside.
DOUGH. Cut the biscuit dough into quarters, coat each piece in the cinnamon sugar coating.
BAKE. Place the pieces in the pan, really close together, and cover with melted butter. Bake for 20-22 minutes until the bites are cooked through and browned on the outside.
GLAZE. Mix glaze ingredients until well combined and pour over warm biscuits.
If you’re up to the task, you can use homemade biscuit dough! This is our favorite homemade biscuit dough, and it will take a few extra minutes of prep time, but it is super delicious! Just weigh out 12 ounces of homemade dough on a food scale if you have one.
If you’re planning on eating these for breakfast, you can prepare these the night before, cover and store in the fridge, then bake in the morning! I wouldn’t recommend making these any more than a day ahead.
There’s quite a debate on whether you can successfully FREEZE canned biscuit dough. Some people have great luck others do not. Your best bet is to bake the cinnamon bites first.
Prepare bites according to recipe directions. Put them in the oven, but under-bake them by 5 minutes. Let the bites cool completely, then cover with plastic wrap and again with aluminum foil. Label and FREEZE for 1-2 months.
When you’re ready to eat them, thaw in the fridge. Heat oven to 350 degrees F and bake for 10-12 minutes or until bites have finished baking. Cover with glaze and enjoy!
