After some perusing online, I came up with this little creation myself, and if I may pat myself on the back, it was pretty fantastic. When I tasted the icing, I feared it was too sweet, but when spread on the warm rolls, it was perfect.
I loved that they were mini-sized; that made me feel dainty. We devoured these in no time and I can't wait to try different variations.
- 1 tube crescent rolls
- 6 tablespoons of butter, divided
- cinnamon for sprinkling (I probably used about 2-3 teaspoons total)
- 4oz strawberry cream cheese
- 1 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- pinch of salt
Preheat the oven to 375.
Unroll the rolls so the rectangle is horizontally facing and press the seams together. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter, and then brush it over the dough. Sprinkle with the cinnamon.
Carefully roll the dough into a long cylinder, rolling away from you. Slice into 16 even mini rolls and place in a greased pie plate. Bake for 11-13 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter along with the rest of the ingredients and whisk together (or use your mixer) until smooth.
Spread over warm rolls and enjoy!
