At Stay-at-Home Parents, Guide Barbara Whiting wrote a wonderful article about how these rolls can be used to teach children about Jesus' resurrection. Take a look at her article, then make these rolls. And these rolls are good any time of the year, not just at Easter!
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1 Tbsp. flour
- 1-1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 sheet frozen puff pastry dough (thawed)
- 16 large marshmallows
- 1/3 cup butter (melted and cooled)
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray 16 muffin cups with nonstick baking spray containing flour. Lining them with paper cups won't work - the finished rolls will stick to the paper liners. In a small bowl, combine 1/4 cup sugar, flour and 1 tsp. cinnamon; mix well and set aside.
2. Place dough on lightly floured work surface and roll out to a 12" square. Cut into 16 3" squares. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of the cinnamon-sugar mixture on each square and press slightly into dough.
Place a marshmallow in the center and form the dough around the marshmallow, sealing the edges well. Make sure that the marshmallow is completely covered with dough; pinch the edges thoroughly to seal.
3. Dip the filled roll in melted butter and roll in remaining cinnamon sugar mixture; place in sprayed muffin cup. Repeat with remaining marshmallows, dough, cinnamon sugar mixture, and butter.
4. Place the muffin tins on a large cookie sheet because the filling might spill over in the oven. Bake at 375 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
5. Remove from oven; cool 1 minute. Remove rolls from muffin cups and place on wire racks to cool.
