With my restricted diet there are only a few things I can truly enjoy for dessert. I always like a piece of my That Apple Stuff straight form the oven, if you missed my recipe you can find it HERE and lately I have been craving cinnamon rolls. So this is the simplest recipe you will ever make! Lets kick cinnamon out of the holiday menus and into your everyday desserts. This is a low sugar, migraine safe dessert. Please read through all of the ingredients to assure you can have the ingredients. Cinnamon not just for the holidays! If you are not on a restricted diet please see Katies Tid Bits. I enjoy cinnamon flavored treats so my recent craving for cinnamon rolls is easily fulfilled with this simple recipe. A word of caution, it is easy to eat too many of these…Yes, that’s right I ate four of them all by my lonesome. I have no self-control, giggle. This recipe can be doubled and frozen for quick heat and go cinnamon rolls too.
What You Need
Pre made refrigerated pie dough, room temperature ( I use Pillsbury)
4 Tbsp. Butter, softened (I use dairy free)
¾ Cup brown sugar substitute (I use Splenda brown sugar)
½ Cup sugar substitute (I use Splenda)
3 tsp. Freshly grated cinnamon
9 inch round baking pan
Nonstick cooking spray
Before You Start
Preheat oven to 425°, lay parchment paper on clean counter. Coat inside and sides of baking pan with non stick cooking spray.
Lets Make It!
Unroll the dough placing it in the center of the parchment paper. In a bowl combine brown sugar, sugar and cinnamon, add softened butter and whisk together well. Spread onto the pastry dough and using the back of a spoon spread it out to the edges. Carefully roll the coated dough. With a sharp knife slice about 8-10 pieces of equal size and place them in your prepared baking pan cut side down. I add a little more sugar substitute and brown sugar substitute the tops before baking. Bake for 15 -20 minutes until light brown. Serve while warm.
There are a variety of glazes and other yumminess you can spread and or drizzle over the top. But I prefer mine without anything. If you would like a little sugar free powdered sugar on the tops of yours
Combine one cup sugar substitute and 1 Tbsp. corn starch in a blender and pulse until fine powder. Sprinkle on top. I know I’ve shared this before but I think it is easier if it is with the recipe you are making.
**Katies Tid Bits if you are no on a restricted diet ingredients substitutions are all of equal value to those listed.
