I have a super simple recipe today for easy Crescent Roll Cinnamon Rolls. These are a little cheater version of a cinnamon roll that takes pretty much all the work out and gives you a buttery, cinnamony, gooey treat- sort of a cross between a cinnamon sugar doughnut and a cinnamon roll.
These are also fantastic to make if you celebrate the Resurrection for Easter as it is a great way to communicate this in a simple way to children.
Essentially you will dip a marshmallow in butter and cinnamon sugar and then bake it within a roll. All the butter and cinnamon and gooey-ness from the marshmallow will infuse the roll creating a delicious treat. The marshmallow will melt leaving the inside hollow. It makes these rolls a perfect visual for the empty tomb on Easter morning.
I can pretty much guarantee these will be a huge hit with the kids. My children go to a Christian school and the teacher actually does a very fun Easter party with activities and treats and asked me to make these for the class. I have always wanted to make these myself and both of my girls have done them at school and at Church in the past so they sort of knew what to expect but that didn’t take away the giant smiles when the marshmallow disappeared. “Mom that is so cool!”
Such a great way to create lifelong traditions and memories.
