ooey-gooey cinnamon bites

This ooey-gooey-deliciousness 🤤 is seriously heaven!

Growing up, our junior high and high school had these amazing cinnamon buns – I’m talking airy, fluffy and moist!

I craved these so much but would feel defeated because I couldn’t find a similar recipe that would hit the spot the same way.  I am sure the cafeteria ladies that perfected this treasured gem are long gone 😩 too!

So, I began searching online and I found many cinnamon bun recipes but knew they weren’t the same texture and consistency I was searching for… [le sigh]

I didn’t stop searching and I recently found a recipe that I tweaked and it actually brought me back! Nos·tal·gia on high and all. Like, no joke. This is the real deal!

I made these for my son and husband and it was a total hit! My husband and son can now finally taste the goodness I kept raving about.

 

So, folks – You HAVE to try this recipe – its super (super) easy –

 

Ingredients

 

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease a shallow baking dish with butter or cooking spray – I used a ceramic pie dish and sprayed coconut cooking spray on the bottom and sides 🙂
  3. Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside.
  4. Open the can of biscuits and separate the individual biscuits pieces one-by-one.
  5. Using a knife, cut each biscuit into 4 pieces (like a cross – straight down the entire middle first and then across). See image below – IMG_5078.JPGIMG_2029.JPG
  6. One by one – take each piece of the cut biscuit and roll it into a ball shape using your handsIMG_4023.JPGIMG_8219.JPG
  7. Take each ball and dip it in melted butter, covering the entire ballIMG_8186.JPG
  8. Then roll the butter-covered ball into sugar-cinnamon mixture
  9. Place finished cinnamon-sugar covered ball into greased baking dishIMG_8405.JPG
  10. Repeat steps 6-9 until all biscuit pieces are covered and placed evenly inside baking dish IMG_7971.JPGIMG_2514.JPG
  11. Bake 15 minutes or until top is caramelized IMG_2725.jpgIMG_2726.jpg
  12. Let cool 5-10 minutes before serving.

Extra: Add ice cream (or lactose-free vanilla ice cream) on the side to take it up a notch! 😉

P.S. Look at how gooey-fluffy-moist-airy this bite is – IMG_2730.jpg

Note: adding more cinnamon will give it a stronger cinnamon taste and darken the bites. I tried the recipe twice – once using 1 tablespoon of cinnamon (darker bites) and the other using 2 teaspoonfuls (the lighter dusted images). Both taste delicious!
