Amped Up Cinnamon Rolls

First off I would like to wish everyone a very happy and safe Fourth of July. I give thanks to the men and women who sacrifice their lives for our freedom. We are all fortunate to live in the beautiful United States of America. With that being said, I give to your the all American Pillsbury Cinnamon Roll dressed up in gooey delicious brown sugar, cinnamon and butter topping. As soon as my fork hit that cinnamon roll, I knew heaven was around the corner. Although there is nothing like homemade, this is the perfect recipe when you are pressed for time or you want to impress.

What you will need:

1 tube of pre-packaged cinnamon rolls

1 bread pan (a square or round pan can be used)

1 tablespoon of butter plus some to grease your pan

1/4 cup of brown sugar, tightly packed

1/2 a teaspoon of cinnamon powder

Follow instructions on package for pre heating your oven. Different brands have different heat requirements. Grease your pan with butter by using a paper towel to spread butter around the pan. You can also melt the butter and use a pastry brush to spread the butter around the pan. Open packaged cinnamon rolls and put icing to the side. Place the cinnamon rolls side by side in the pan. The closer together they are, the better!

In a separate bowl, mix together the brown sugar and cinnamon. This will help incorporate the two before you add the butter. Go ahead and add the butter and mix all ingredients together. Sprinkle your sugar mixture evenly over your cinnamon rolls and place them in the oven. Follow package instructions for baking time. I put mine into the oven for 14 minutes and they came out nice and soft. If you prefer the tops more browned, keep them in the oven longer until desired consistency. Once timer runs out, remove cinnamon rolls and cover them with aluminum foil for a few minutes and place the icing in the microwave for 10 seconds. Pour icing evenly over cinnamon rolls and enjoy!
