Breakfast pastries are one of my favorite things in life. A sweet little treat in the morning with a good cup of coffee, what could be better? I love supporting my neighborhood bakeries, but when you’re feeding a housefull that can really add up. And that is where these Easy Cinnamon Roll Sliders come in! Made with tasty Hawaiian rolls, this breakfast treat comes together in minutes and is the perfect choice for a hungry crew. Seriously, it’s easy enough for anyone to whip up. Let’s go over it…
You’ll start out by slicing the whole package of Hawaiian rolls in half so you have two large rectangular sheets, do not break the rolls apart. Place the bottom sheet in a greased baking dish, then spread a sweet cinnamon and brown sugar mixture over the top. Pop that top sheet of rolls on and generously coat with the remaining cinnamon mixture. Drizzle a little butter around the edges and your sliders are ready for the oven.
The sliders bake for just over 10 minutes which gives you time to mix together the icing. Cream cheese, powdered sugar, cream, and a splash of vanilla are whisked until smooth then drizzled over the baked rolls. Serve them right away for the most delicious results. Give these Cinnamon Roll Sliders a try for your next holiday or breakfast get-together– they’re sure to be a hit!
