Cinnamon Buttons

Yield 6 servings (serving size: 1 roll)
Give children clean, kid-safe scissors for cutting the dough into pieces. Sprinkle any remaining cinnamon-sugar over top of dough before baking. To make a savory version, add one minced garlic clove to the butter, and substitute grated Parmesan cheese for the cinnamon-sugar mixture.


  • Cooking spray
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 (11-ounce) can refrigerated soft breadstick dough

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 375°.

  2. Lightly coat 6 muffin cups with cooking spray.

  3. Pour melted butter into a shallow dish. Combine sugar and cinnamon in another shallow dish.

  4. Unroll dough; separate into breadsticks. Cut each breadstick into 3 equal portions; shape each portion into a ball. Working with one ball at a time, dip into melted butter; gently roll in sugar mixture. Place 6 balls in each muffin cup.
