Cinnamon Cream Cheese Roll Up

While they look like a hybrid between a Twinkie and a churro, this little cinnamon-sugar rollups are freakishly scrumptious. I like to think that over the past year and a half (I’m rounding up, but only by a little) I’ve developed quite the discerning palate. And that’s mostly true. But then something like this comes along- a sweet treat that has no logical right to be so tasty- and yet here it is; and it’s inexplicably delicious! Plus, if you’re living that frugal lifestyle, I have some seriously good news for you: all of the ingredients are inexpensive! All you need is a loaf of white bread, some butter, cinnamon, sugar, and a brick of cream cheese. So for an unjustifiably tasty treat that treats your wallet right, save this recipe and keep it close.

 9 slices White bread
 5 ½ oz Cream cheese, soft
 ½ cup Confectioners' sugar
 ¾ cup Sugar
 1 tbsp Cinnamon
 ½ cup Butter, melted

1

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

2

Cut the crust off the bread. Flatten the bread as thin as you can with a rolling pin. Repeat with remaining bread. In a medium size bowl, beat together the cream cheese and confectioners' sugar until smooth. Combine the cinnamon and sugar in a shallow dish; set aside.

3

Spread a thin layer of the cream cheese mixture onto the surface of the flat bread. Roll the bread into a tight log. Repeat with each slice of bread. (Try not to get cream cheese on your fingers or the bread will stick to your fingers as you roll it and rip off of the log.)

4

Either dip or brush the melted butter all over each bread log. Roll each buttery bread log in cinnamon sugar to coat, then set on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake for 16-20 minutes, or until golden brown; serve immediately, while still warm. (And if you have any leftovers, they're still good at room temperature or microwaved for a few seconds. Just so you know...)
