Cinnamon Buttons

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


Preheat oven to 375°.

Lightly coat 6 muffin cups with cooking spray.

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

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.

Bake at 375° for 15 minutes. Remove rolls from the pan. Serve warm.
