A Different and Delicious Twist on Cinnamon Rolls

From: Sue

Regarding your cinnamon roll recipe made with the "Ninety Minute Rolls" dough – here’s a tip when you use the dough for cinnamon rolls:

Use peanut butter (smooth or chunky) instead of margarine to spread over the dough. Be generous! It makes a wonderful nutty flavor. If you make an icing from powdered sugar to drizzle over the top, use a drop of vanilla flavoring and a drop of almond flavoring in the icing. You will think these came from the gourmet bakery. Yum yum!

Ok, I’m not so sure about this one but it just sounded too interesting for me not to post it. :-) What can I say I’m pregnant! hehehe

    Here is a twist I thought someone else might like.Using the Ninety minute rolls recipe as well.I omit the water,reduce the milk to 1/4 cup and add 1/2 cup of pureed pumpkin.These are delicious.I have made peanut butter rolls also,and like to omit the cinnamon and mix a little honey with the peanut butter.

    my daughter made these adn used the peanut butter and for the cinnamon, she used very very very little cinnamon … and for the “frosting”? she used chocolate frosting… she said “mom! i am in heaven!!!”… hehehehehehe :D…
    i told her i would share this with everyone…
    and she wanted me to make sure you knew she used very little cinnamon sprinkled on the peanut butter but you cam hardly see it (only to give it a bit of a cinnimon taste)… she said she used the reese’s brand of peanut butter … (not that i think it matters but she wanted you to know :D)…

    Back when I ate school lunches (when Nixon was in office..haha!) we had a peanut butter twisted/braided roll that was very good. With government supplemented peanut butter they found all kinds of creative ways to add it into our lunches. They were really good, too!

    Oh these do sound good! I’ll have to give them a try. I usually add a teaspoon or two of peanut butter to my morning oatmeal instead of butter. It’s like having peanut butter oatmeal cookies without the guilt.

      Lisa, I love pb on my oatmeal!! In fact, it’s one of the few ways I can tolerate oatmeal! I also like pb on hot barley (I like the chewier texture as opposed to oatmeal). YUM!

    Simple Spaghetti: I put a jar of Ragu or Prego, a jar of water, a pound of ground beef (cooked), a tablespoon of Italian Seasoning, and 8 oz. of broken spaghetti in a crockpot and cook on low all day for a very good and filling Supper. Since there are only 3 of us in our home, it makes two generous meals. A salad and garlic bread completes this meal.

    i had a roll of those crescent rolls in a can .. and bc i wanted to make cini rolls (or the ones with the orange frosting, i know u all have seen those) .. i decided to put the butter and cinnamon and then roll up the rolls like normal and when they were done i frosted them with the little bit of lemon frosting i had left ..
    it was a good little treat and different too ..

    I’m allergic to cinnamon so I make nutmeg rolls! My kids love, them! I just replace the cinnamon with nutmeg and ta da !!!!

    • Brenna says

      Oh that sounds delicious! I think nutmeg is often overlooked! In fact, your post not only made me want to try them, but also to have them with a glass of rich, homemade eggnog! Thanks for sharing!!
