Pillsbury Ready-Made Dough: Cinnamon Morning Buns & Croissants (no egg, dairy, nuts, peanuts)
Cinnamon Morning Buns
If you've got dairy allergies and have ever shopped the bread or bakery aisle looking for cinnamon or cinnamon raisin breads, you'd know they're few and far between. The other day at my local market, I found Pillsbury Crescent Rounds, and made Cinnamon Morning Buns (not to be confused with the Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls, which I believe contain dairy).
Just separate and smear a bit of allergy-safe butter or margarine (Earth Balance in our house), then cinnamon sugar mixture on top (stir together about 1-2 tablespoons of sugar with a few shakes of cinnamon--a little goes a long way!). If the kids want raisins, just have them stick them between the swirls.
Bake for 10-12 minutes at 375 degrees F.
These are so good hot out of the oven, but for a special occasion like Mother's Day, make a simple icing for your cinnamon buns. It seems to generally consist of 4 main ingredients mixed together. This recipe is from cooks.com; I just modified it to make it allergy-friendly:
I like to make these "croissants" as we like to call them when we have a bit of extra time in the morning (usually on the weekend, when there is no birthday party, play date, school event, soccer game, or baseball game we need to rush off to). Perfect for a Mother's Day treat that your kids will adore, too.
Add Aidells sausage and some fresh fruit for a complete breakfast.
Don't forget mom's extra good morning kisses! And if she's slept in a bit, she'll REALLY love her breakfast! Ahem...
