Cinnamon Pull Aparts

I love making bread in the Fall.  My mom always use to make us Cinnamon Pull Aparts often when we were little kids.  As I was cleaning out my freezer this week I found 3 different bags of rolls.  I didn’t want them to go to waste from freezer burn and I immediate thought of making my moms Cinnamon Pull Aparts.  I can honestly say I don’t think I have ever made them for my family.


My husband was so impressed by these bad boys!  The first thing he said after trying them was why have you never made these before!  He said its like an individual cinnamon roll.  So now these Cinnamon Pull Aparts are on my husbands radar and he is already asking when I will be making them again.  My kids on the other loved them or I think they loved the icing more!

These are so easy to make….so grab the kids and let them get their hands dirty with you.

Grab your rolls and let them unthaw, then slice in half



Melt your butter


Mix together cinnamon and sugar


Roll dough so it is long or as my son says a snake.  Once your dough is long roll in butter


then the cinnamon mixture


Start in the middle of your buttered baking dish and start in circle and work your way around.



Bake in the oven until golden brown


Let cool 15 minutes then drizzle away with the icing


Now enjoy!!!

  4. This is a cute fun way of serving cinnamon buns. I love it.

  5. Are these a specific type of roll? I’m in the Uk and I’m not sure if we have anything similar. Are they just raw dough that you buy frozen to bake as you want them or are they special cinnamon ones already? I think this looks delicious so am tempted to have a go if I can.

  6. YUM! I love that it’s made with pre-made much easier! Love the look of it too. Pinned!
