Cinnamon Sticks & Some Winners

We seem to be on a cinnamon roll.  Ha!  Get it… cinnamon roll.  Cinnamon roll?  Oh man.  It’s early.  I haven’t had enough sleep and I’m getting rummy.  But what do I do when I’m super tired and my kids won’t let me sleep?  I bake.  Yep.  I know, it’s crazy.  But I do.  Have you noticed that most of the pictures of my kids helping me in the kitchen they are in their pajamas?  That’s because it’s most likely before 8am.

I knew my kids would love these cinnamon sticks.  They’re everything we love: cinnamon, frosting, dough.  Oh man!  And they were so easy to make.  I love things like that.  I have a feeling these will be a favorite for my kids when we have people over.
Thank you Jam Hands for this awesome recipe!
* refrigerated pizza dough
* melted buter
* cinnamon and sugar
* powdered sugar
* milk
* butter or butter flavoring
Unroll the pizza dough and roll either out into a circle or a rectangle.
Cut with a pizza cutter into strips but don’t separate them.
Brush with melted butter.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 15 minutes.  Make sure you don’t over cook the dough.
While it’s cooking, make the frosting.  Its the simple powdered sugar and milk frosting.  You could use cream cheese frosting (yum) or maple frosting too.  That would be tasty!
Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.
Drizzle with frosting and serve warm.
Yep, my kids LOVED them!!!
