Cinnamon Cream Cheese Roll Ups

It’s been quite awhile since I’ve woken up in the morning and thought “what can I make for breakfast?”  It was a tough end of the school year for me.  The end of the school year is always my busiest time.  (Well, that and the beginning of the year.  And Christmas time.  And Spring break.)  But this was definitely a different kind of difficult.  I was exhausted and worn out.  Like, I want to quit my job and open up a bakery in some small mid-west town, kind of difficult.  But… we’re a few weeks into summer vacation and my kids and I have been camping twice.  My energy and spirit are back and I’m ready to cook and bake again.

Of course I had to start with these bad boys.  I mean, look at them.  YUM!

I saw these on Lil’ Luna (a blog that I love) and pinned them immediately.

You seriously need to make these.  You will be so glad you did and your family will thank you.

The recipe calls for white bread.  I had wheat bread so I used that.  No biggie, right?  Cut the crusts off.

Roll the bread out as flat as you can with a rolling pin and spread the cream cheese mixture over the bread, then roll them up.

Dip them in the butter and then the cinnamon and sugar mixture.  Bake and voila!  Deliciousness!
