Baker’s Best: Cinnamon Swirl Roll Minis

September 28, 2023

Fall into one of the best flavors and scents of the season – CINNAMON!

Cinnamon is one of the most widely used spices worldwide. A kitchen filled with cinnamon scent is the essence of fall. It’s time to “hunker down” and get baking. 

These mouth-watering, aromatic cinnamon treats are one of my favorites for breakfast, or as an accompaniment to a mug of steaming mulled cider, or just before bed with a glass of cold milk.

My mother-in-law would prepare these from leftover pie crusts at holiday time.

This traditional recipe has been prepared repeatedly from the time our boys were young. However, since my family and I enjoy them so much, I simply make them using an entire crust.

They can be frozen, but are best right out of the oven.
