Cinnamon Smell

Cinnamon is such a wonderful smell and taste. Today I’m sharing a recipe featuring refrigerated cinnamon rolls. It tastes just as good as the aroma smells.

1/4 c. melted butter
2 cans (12.4 oz. each) refrigerated cinnamon rolls
5 eggs
1/2 c. heavy whipping cream
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. vanilla
1 c. chopped pecans
3/4 c. maple syrup

Garnish
Icing
powdered sugar
maple syrup

Melt butter and pour into 13 x 9 pan. Separate cans into 16 rolls. Cut each into 8 pieces and add to buttered baking dish. Beat eggs. Add cream, cinnamon, and vanilla. Pour over cinnamon rolls. Sprinkle with nuts. Drizzle with 3/4 c. syrup. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-28 minutes. Cool for 15 minutes. Microwave icing on 50% for 10-15 seconds. Drizzle over cinnamon rolls. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve with syrup.

Notes:

  • I used two small cans of reduced fat cinnamon rolls (5 rolls each) cut everything by a third. I baked for 20 minutes in my Bubble and Brown baking dish.
  • I used 2 eggs and 2 T. egg substitute.
  • I substituted fat free half and half for heavy whipping cream. It tastes pretty much the same but much better for you.
  • I omitted the nuts.
  • I used light maple syrup in the recipe and didn’t use any after it was baked.
