Cinnamon Roll Muffins



All the cool mornings we have been having lately have been putting me in a baking kind of mood. This muffin recipe was right up my ally! I'm all about simple and easy and there is nothing like the  yummy smell of cinnamon filling your kitchen. Mmmmm....


Cinnamon Roll Muffins
Adapted from Chef in Training

Ingredients
1 can Grand Biscuits
1/4 cup butter softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
For the Frosting
4 oz cream cheese softened
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cup powdered sugar


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
Roll each of the 8 Pillsbury Grand Biscuits out into a flat circle with rolling pin. Coat with granulated sugar on both sides to sweeten up the dough.Smear about half a tablespoon of butter onto each flattened biscuit. In a medium bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle a good amount of the mixture onto each biscuit. Roll up each biscuit and cut each roll into thirds. Place three pieces, cut side up, into each muffin tin cup.
Bake at 350 degrees F for about 15 minutes. Once cooked, let cool in the muffin tin for 5 minutes, then remove and let finish cooling

For Icing, beat softened cream cheese, vanilla, and powdered sugar together until smooth. Top Each Cinnamon Roll Muffin with Icing.
