this is a recipe directly from Pillsbury.com which turned out to be a very quick and easy breakfast treat during the holidays. this is not a fancy recipe, nor is it a gourmet waffle. however; this is one to try when the grandchildren come over and they want to experiment with the waffle maker.
simply use Pillsbury grands refrigerated cinnamon rolls with cream cheese icing. i purchased the reduced fat rolls, although i am not sure that makes much difference anyway.
to make this recipe more upscale, i would add toasted pecans and serve with real maple syrup instead of the cream cheese glaze.
to prepare this recipe:
heat the waffle maker and brush with canola oil. remove the cinnamon rolls from the can and set the icing aside. for each waffle, place one cinnamon roll in the center of the waffle grid and close. bake for no longer than 2 minutes and check. Pillsbury recommended 3 to 4 minutes, but i found that cooking temperature too long for my cuisinart waffle maker.
to make the cream cheese glaze: stir the icing provided with 1 cup powdered sugar, 3 tablespoons milk and 1 teaspoon vanilla until the glaze is smooth.
serve the glaze over the waffles. this is a child friendly recipe, as the waffles are small, the size of biscuits. i can see that it would be fun to prepare with small children.
tip: i did watch my red and green signal lights on my waffle maker, and they worked perfectly to alert me that these cinnamon roll waffles were done quickly.
