Quick Stockholm Memories Cinnamon rolls to celebrate the weekend!

I learned from the Swedes: Love sweet snacks withyour drink at the local cafe. The cinnamon rolls won me over. A bit smaller than the ones I had in Stockholm, but this quick and easy cinnamon roll recipe will make a great quick snack.

  • 1 can of cresent rolls (for my first try I used the small tin).
  • a good amount of softened butter (I used about 50 gramms)
  • 3-4 table spoons of brown sugar
  • half a table spoon of cinnamon (or maybe a bit more)
  • two teaspoons of nutmeg
  • For topping powdered sugar
You could add raisins to the filling too if you'd like.

Grease a muffintin with buttter.
In a small bowl, mix together the sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon.
Roll out the pastry. Cut in two if you're short on space (like me). Pinch together the seams, your not going to use them anyway.
Spread a good layer of butter on the pastry. Cover with the mix of dry ingredients. Be generous.
starting from the short side, Roll up the pastry. Make sure its nice and tight. Cut slices from yor roll. And place them ik the muffin tin. Make sure to dip the first and last slice of your roll in some left sugar mix. Or you can sprinkle over some later.

Put in the oven (175 C) for about 10 to 15 minutes. Check the directions on the pastry package.

Let cool for a moment and in the mean time, make yourself a cup of tea or coffee. Before serving to yourself (and others, for greater fun), cover with some powdered sugar. It looks even better:

Before a little snow fall...


Then, the best part of all: dig in and enjoy.
