Prep Time 5 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 package refrigerated cinnamon rolls

  2. Place the cinnamon rolls in the pie iron – we were able to fit 4 cinnamon rolls in a double pie iron; close the pie iron.
  3. Place the pie iron over what would be medium-low heat, as you want to make sure the inside gets done before the outside burns; flip often.
  4. When done, remove from pie iron and top with frosting or glaze.

Recipe Notes

A roll of cinnamon rolls did not take up much room at all, but provided more than enough for breakfast us (2 adults and 1 child).
