Mini Cinnamon Rolls

by Cindy

I'm going to share with you a recipe that I have kept secret for years.  My mom's friend Pat gave this recipe to her years ago and we've enjoyed it so much.  I've given it to just a few good friends but now I'm going to put it out there for everyone.  It is the best mini cinnamon roll recipe I've ever eaten and there is a secret ingredient.  It's the marshmallows!  It is an easy recipe but a little messy. These will just melt in your mouth and you can't just eat one. These are soooo good!!!

2 cans crescent rolls
miniature marshmallows
1 stick butter (melted)
1 1/2 c sugar
2 T cinnamon
chopped pecans

Combine sugar and cinnamon in a bowl.  Separate rolls and cut each triangle in half.  Roll them into bigger pieces.   Put a small amount of pecans on the center of each piece of dough. Dip 3 marshmallows in melted butter and roll in the cinnamon mixture and place on the center of the dough pieces.

 Seal dough.  Roll the sealed dough in butter and then the cinnamon mixture and place in a mini muffin pan.

 Bake at 375 for 10 minutes.  Line underneath the pans because the butter tends to overflow into the oven.  While still warm drizzle with the following glaze.  1/2 c powdered sugar, 1/3 t vanilla, and 4-6 t of milk.  Remove from pan while still warm with a spatula or spoon. 
It may take more melted butter and more cinnamon-sugar mixture but see how far it will go and make more if it runs out.

Have a couple with your morning or afternoon coffee.  They are irresistible!!!
