Christmas Baking: Cinnamon Rollups

As part of my Christmas baking series, today I’m sharing a recipe for Cinnamon Rollups. These have a nice subtle cinnamon taste, are not too sweet, and are easy and quick to make.

Cinnamon Rollups

2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup margarine or butter
1/2 cup milk
1 egg, beaten

1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp cinnamon

Combine flour and baking powder, cut in margarine until crumbly. Stir in milk and egg. Combine sugar and cinnamon, sprinkle onto counter and roll out your dough so that the cinnamon and sugar covers both sides. Roll out dough into a small circle, cut into wedges and roll up each triangle. You should be able to roll out about six small circles, cutting each into about eight wedges, making a total of about 48 rollups varying in size. Bake on a cookie sheet at 350 F for 16 to 18 minutes.

Cut the dough into six portions to be rolled out into small circles.

  1. Wow – going to try these … maybe right now!! Is it bad to have them for dinner? I’ve never made cinnamon rolls (or round ups) but you made it look so easy – thanks!

    1. Thanks for stopping by my blog, Sarah! Yes, these cinnamon roll ups are very easy and quick to make. And they’re always one of the first treats to go when I bring a variety of baking anywhere. And I’m sure they’d make a wonderful dinner! The peanut butter cookies are tasty as well. The rosebud is a nice added touch.
