    Default Cinnamon Buns

    Hi all,

    Just wondering if anyone has a great recipe for a points-friendly version of the classic "Cinnamon roll" complete with the icing on top? If so could you post (or re-post)?

    MUCH thanks!!



    Regards,

    Pillsbury makes "Sugar Free" (they are made with splenda) Cinnamin Rolls. For one roll, with icing, it's only 2 points. AND BELIEVE ME, they are very, very tasty...just like the originals. They also make Reduced Fat Cinnamin Rolls, but I found that the Sugar Free ones are lower in points. They come in a cardboard canister that you break open. I found them in the section of the produce-type foods near cheeses and yogurts and puddings.

    I will do some research, I found a recipe made with small marshmellows and cinnamon that was just gooey and yummy and worked really really well. They were 1 point. Can't remember it exactly, though...so I look.

    To prepare frosting, combine the powdered sugar, cream cheese and vanilla in a small bowl, adding a few drops of water as needed to made a smooth, spreadable glaze. Drizzle over the topes of the warm rolls and let stand a few minutes to set. Serve warm.

    This is from Aimee's Adventures website. I haven't tried them but her picture of it sure looks good:

    Cinnamon Rolls

    1 (13.8 oz.) Can Pillsbury Classic Pizza Crust
    2 Tablespoons Fat Free Margarine Spread
    1/2 cup Splenda Granular
    3 teaspoons Cinnamon
    1 Tablespoon Sugar
    1/2 Cup Confectioner's Sugar
    1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
    2 teaspoons Water

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Unroll the dough and press it out to 1/4 inch thickness onto the cookie sheet. Spread the margarine evenly over the dough. In a small bowl, combine the Splenda, cinnamon and sugar together. Sprinkle evenly over the dough. Roll the dough (jelly-roll style) starting from the long side of the dough. Once completely rolled, pinch the seam to seal. Cut into 12 pieces and place onto the prepared cookie sheet so that the cut side is facing up. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool slightly. In a small bowl, mix together the confectioner's sugar, vanilla extract and water. If the icing is too thick, add a few drops of water at a time until it's thin enough to drizzle. Once the cinnamon rolls have cooled enough (you want them warm, but not hot), evenly drizzle the icing over the rolls and serve.
