Itty Bitty Cinnamon Roll Bites

Tags: , , , , , ,


Who says cinnamon rolls have to take all day to make?  You will be in and out of the kitchen in about 30 minutes with my Itty Bitty Bites.  I’ve used Pillsbury’s “Simply” biscuits to create these adorable bite size cinnamon rolls.

No kidding, I made these for an afternoon snack for the kids and their friends last week and by the end of the night all 60 bites were gone.  They are a fun snack and sweet dessert for any party.

Be sure to check out my Pesto Chicken Thighs with Italian Cream over Parmesan Couscous that I developed for Kraft Philadelphia!

Take a peek at how easy these are…..and enjoy!!

Line-up:  Left- brown sugar, butter, biscuits, cinnamon, powdered sugar and heavy cream.


Here are those biscuits and new line by Pillsbury I love.  No trans fats, no high fructose corn syrup, no artifical flavors or colors.  Yes!

So, you’ll press out the biscuits with your hands to about 3 inches wide, then spread with butter.


Sprinkle with brown sugar.


Sprinkle with cinnamon.  I LOVE this Roasted Saigon Cinnamon from McCormick Gourmet.


Starting at the bottom, roll up each biscuit.


All rolled up!


Slice 1/2 inch pieces, about 6 per biscuit and bake for 16 to 20 minutes.


They’ll look like this :)


Time for the drizzle!




I love these little rolls.


Cutest darned things ever….and they are mighty tasty too.  Enjoy!!


Itty Bitty Cinnamon Roll Bites

One can Pillsbury “Simply” refrigerated biscuits, 10 count

5 tablespoons softened butter

1/4 cup packed light brown sugar

2 teaspoons McCormick Gourmet Roasted Saigon Cinnamon

1 cup powdered sugar

5 to 6 tablespoons heavy cream

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line a large baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.

2. Unroll biscuits onto a clean countertop and press out with fingers to about 3 inches wide. Spread each biscuit with 1/2 tablespoon of butter then top evenly with brown sugar and cinnamon. Starting at the bottom of each round, roll up jelly roll fashion with seam side down on countertop. Use a sharp knife and cut 1/2 inch slices and place onto prepared baking sheet. I cut 6 slices per biscuit making 60 small cinnamon rolls. Bake for 16 to 20 minutes, until light brown and cooked through. Remove from oven.

3. Place powdered sugar and heavy cream into a small bowl and whisk until smooth. Drizzle glaze over hot rolls. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving. Best served warm with a tall glass of milk!

Makes 60 itty bitty bites

    I have not read any of the previous comments, so please forgive me. But do you need to grease the jelly roll pan if you are not using or do not have a silpat? Thanks!

    Missy says:

    I made these last night for a volunteer breakfast at our school. I love them because cinnamon rolls are always too big and you never really need a whole one. These are perfect because you can just have one or two….or 10!!

    They were a huge hit and I will definitely make them aagain. Very kid friendly too, can’t wait to make them with my kiddo!!

    Is the butter in here salted or unsalted? :) I’m a relatively novice baker, though I can cook pretty well. I can never tell what requires salted or unsalted butter unless specified!

    Ruth says:

    Wow, these were so super easy to make and the cute factor was impressive. Plus, easier to keep the portion size under control for my 5-year old than handing him a ginormous cinnabon! I forgot to do the glaze, and honestly, no one even noticed!!

    Erin says:

    Might want to revise the time on these. My first batch came out like hockey pucks (baked 16 minutes). I baked the second batch for 10, and they were perfect. My oven temp is correct.

    Other than that, great recipe!

    I made these at 8 pm this evening because my child was looking for something sweet. I had all the ingredients on hand and it took longer to cook them than it did to make them. She loved them so did her dad! Perfect for an on the go breakfast too. Thank you for posting this recipe! I will use it often I am sure!
