This pull apart cinnamon sugar bread sticks recipe is a new take on classic cinnamon rolls, but so much easier to make. You don’t have to wait around for rising dough since this cinnamon bread stick recipe uses a store-bought frozen bread dough as the base for these tasty treats. Fun and easy baking recipes are all you need when you are in a pinch, and with the involvement of a few prepared ingredients, Melissa, the writer of this recipe, proves that this bread stick recipe is one of them. Whether you want amazing baking recipes for elegant entertaining or just fun food for kids, this cinnamon bread recipe will be one you will be making this repeatedly.

The usual sweet rolls recipe, like cinnamon rolls, involves a yeast-based dough like brioche, which requires a few periods of rising time. The first rise is to rest the dough to relax the gluten and to allow flavor to develop. The second rise happens after the dough is shaped to build structure. In the case of this pull apart bread recipe, the dough only needs the second rise time since the first step has already been done for you by purchasing frozen white bread dough. If you are an avid cinnamon bun fan, however, and make them on a regular basis, you could substitute the white bread dough with your brioche recipe. You may have to increase or lower the proportions of sugar and spices, though, since your amount of cinnamon roll dough could be more or less than the store-bought amount.

Cinnamon is a key component of this cinnamon bun recipe, and this dish uses one tablespoon of it. Although people don’t often think of herbs and spices as being healthy ingredients, cinnamon has many nutritional benefits. The nutritional value of cinnamon contains very high levels of dietary fiber, calcium, and manganese, and high amounts of iron. From just one teaspoon of cinnamon, you can get one gram of fiber, and two percent of your daily-recommended intake of calcium.

As with any cinnamon roll recipe, the expectation is that you will have a cream cheese frosting to drizzle over the rolls, and that is the case with this sweet breadstick recipe. The cream cheese frosting recipe is a usual version of what you would normally see on cinnamon buns, involving icing sugar, cream cheese, and heavy cream. The glaze is thick enough that it will settle onto the bread sticks but loose enough that it will drizzle elegantly over the top of all the cinnamon sticks. This dessert recipe looks so beautiful that you may want to include them as part of a dinner you are hosting, or you can even add them to the brunch table or munch on them for breakfast. These cinnamon sticks are a perfect treat with a hot beverage like coffee.
