Like those cinnamon sticks you get from the pizza place? A couple of weeks ago I was hungry for something sweet, but I didn't want to spend an hour mixing and baking, so I decided to make my own cinnamon sticks. And they turned out great!
These would be perfect to have for dessert with any meal, especially your own homemade pizzas! And they would also make a great snack and a perfect breakfast food. Enjoy!
(I apologize for the lack of exact measurements, especially on the frosting. This recipe was an experimental-throw-together type thing. It's amazing what "a little bit of this" and "a little bit of that" can do!) Recipe for Easy Cinnamon SticksBread Ingredients:
1 can refrigerated pizza dough
1-2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1 8 oz cream cheese, softened
a splash of milk
Directions: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Unroll pizza dough and place on baking sheet. Take a knife and make nine cuts in the dough (as shown below). This will make 10 bread sticks. Don't cut the dough completely in to separate pieces. Just make slits in the dough. When the bread is baked, the sticks will pull apart easily. Next melt your butter, and spread it over the dough. Then sprinkle the dough with as much cinnamon as you desire. If you want your cinamon sticks sticks to be topped with sugar, sprinkle it on at this time too. Bake the bread as directed on the package, about 15-18 minutes.
While the bread sticks are cooking, prepare your frosting. There's no recipe per se for the frosting I made. Just take a block of cream cheese and can cut it into a few pieces and place it in the microwave for 10-30 seconds, or until soft. Then add a small splash of milk and and sugar. Just add a little sugar at a time and stir it until you get your desired taste and consistency. (You can also use confectioner's sugar if you prefer.)
