Cinnamon Roll Pulls


Sorry I have not posted in a while.  First, we were on vacation, then Samantha, my daughter was home visiting for 10 days and then I was sick with a nasty cold this week.

I found this recipe on Pinterest (which I am addicted too), Cinnamon Roll Pulls. It is super easy and what is not to like about butter, sugar, bread and cinnamon?

Cinnamon Roll Pulls

  • 1 unsliced round loaf sourdough French bread
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 – 2 T Milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

To make Vanilla Honey Butter: Whip butter and 1/4 cup powdered sugar together until smooth; stir in honey and vanilla.  Set aside. (You can use regular butter if desired)

Cut the bread lengthwise into 1/2″ slices, without cutting through the bottom crust. Spread vanilla honey butter in between slices.  Rotate the bread 90 degrees and slice the bread again into 1/2″ pieces, without cutting through the bottom crust. Spread more vanilla honey butter in between new cuts. This doesn’t need to be perfect – just make sure there is lots of butter in between all the cuts. Combine sugar and cinnamon. Generously sprinkle in between all cuts. (You may have extra butter and cinnamon sugar.  It will just depend on how large your bread loaf is.)

Wrap in foil; place on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes, until bread is warm.  Unwrap cinnamon bread and place on serving platter.  Combine powdered sugar and milk – adding milk until you get the consistency desired.  Drizzle icing over bread and serve immediately.

I used French bread, but the sour dough will work. The ideas are endless with this recipe. What about savory ingredients….cheese, herbs, garlic, bacon etc. Yum!

I promise to post more photos soon of vacation foods we had and the paella we made while Samantha was home.
