Quick Cinnabon inspired Cinnamon Rolls
I was asked to make a recipe using International Delights flavored creamers and was racking my brain for something to create. I had already made truffles around Valentines Day and I was having a hard time coming up with another great recipe. As I was looking at the different flavors of the creamers (Heath Bar, Almond Joy, Cinnabon, York Peppermint Patty), I was trying to think of ideas. Inspiration struck as the kids (plus their visiting cousin) started begging for breakfast pastries as I was looking at the creamers. I thought, hmmmm, I wonder if I can make cinnamon rolls using the Cinnabon creamer. They would have to be a quick version of cinnamon rolls…maybe biscuit rolls? Maybe cinnamon roll muffins? Something would work.
I have made lots of cinnamon rolls in my day. These are my favorite. And, these are good in a pinch but are’t really my favorite. I decided to take this recipe–modify it a bit and see what would happen. It took a couple of iterations but I finally got the rolls the kids wanted.

- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 2 Tablespoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup International Delight Cinnabon creamer
- ¼ cup whole millk
- 3 Tablespoons butter, melted
- 3 Tablespoons brown sugar
- 3 teaspoons cinnamon (or more if you love the strong cinnamon taste)
- ¼ cup powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon melted butter
- ½ teaspoon vanilla
- 1-2 Tablespoons milk
- 1) Stir together the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder salt).
- 2) Add the creamer and milk, stirring with a wooden spoon.
- 3) Put the dough on a floured surface and knead gently. You should have a nice soft dough that is very pliable and easy to push flat.
- 4) Using your hands (no need for a rolling pin) stretch the dough into a flat rectangle about ½ inch thick.
- 5) Generously, lather the melted butter on top of the dough. Don't be stingy!
- 6) Sprinkle the brown sugar and cinnamon all over....if you love cinnamon, add a bit more. If you have raisins or nuts--add those too!
- 7) Roll it up.
- 8) Cut into about ¾-1 inch segments. And place in the baking pan.
- 9) Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
- 10) Whisk together the powdered sugar, melted buttter, vanilla and milk into a nice icing.
- 11) Drizzle the icing over the pan of warm rolls.
- 12) Serve hot or cold with a cup of coffee! (Or milk, if you are feeding kids.)
