Mini Raspberry Buns

These were a great experiment I did late one night. My friend is throwing a surprise “tea party” birthday for her daughter and was looking for fun and easy bite-sized delights. I was thinking about how she could do itty-bitty cinnamon rolls without all the fuss of, you know, making the dough. Taking some help from Pillsbury made these come together in about ten minutes. Easy-peasy.

You can tell from the pics below, I experimented with different fillings — raspberry jam and a hazelnut mocha spread. We loved them both but thought the raspberry was prettier, so I’m posting that version. But know you could sub for whatever you prefer — traditional cinnamon sugar, any flavor of jam etc.

When I make these again (and I will!) I might sprinkle the dough with a little cinnamon sugar first. My kids commented that the dough wasn’t very sweet. It didn’t stop them from eating all of them, but I can see how when you’re expecting that “cinnamon roll” flavor, this might fall short. So think about doing that if you’re looking for a true sweet roll.

These would be great for any breakfast or brunch and are easy enough to pull off on a lazy weekend. We prefer them warm, straight out of the oven!

p.s. Sorry for the poorly lit how-to pics. I was making this at night and decided the pics would be helpful. So I just grabbed my iPhone and went for it!

Spread 1 Tablespoon preserves on each rectangle. I got a little creative and did half preserves and half hazelnut mocha spread.

Roll each one up gently and cut into 4 mini rolls. (If rolls are too squishy to cut, stick 'em in the freezer for 10 minutes to firm. Cutting will be easier.)

Stir together the confectioners sugar and milk. Drizzle over the tops of the rolls. Serve warm. Makes 16 mini rolls.
