Cinnamon Sugar Buns

We have to have a treat on Sunday! All our older kids come home and it’s so fun to try something new and get everybody’s opinion. Sometimes it’s great to have a recipe that is super easy but tastes like you spent hours cooking in the kitchen! This is super easy but so full of flavor and  your family will be so happy that it cause them to do back flips in the backyard from their joy!

Ingredients: click to print
4 Tablespoons butter- room temperature
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup almonds, chopped
2 Tablespoon flour 
1/4 cup flour

1 package sweet Hawaiian dinner rolls
8 ounce whipped cream cheese
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup almonds, chopped
1 Tablespoon cinnamon
4 eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt


  • To prepare the topping; combine all the ingredients in a small mixing bowl until crumbly. Set aside.
  • Spray a 9 x 9 baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Remove the top of the rolls from the bottom rolls, keeping them connected. Place the buns on a baking sheet. Turn your oven on broil and toast the buns. Leave the door open on the stove so you can make sure not to burn the rolls. Set aside.
  • Turn the oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, mix together the cream cheese, brown sugar, almonds, and the cinnamon.
  • Spread the cream cheese mixture in an even layer on top of the bottom rolls. Top with the toasted top rolls. Pull each roll off creating individual sandwiches.


  • In a large bowl, add the eggs, milk, cream, vanilla and salt. Whisk well to combine. Dip each roll into the custard. Place the rolls into the baking dish on its side, make sure their close to each other. Crumble topping on top.
  • Bake in oven for 25 to 35 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove and allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving. Sprinkle powdered sugar on top!

* If you can’t find Hawaiian rolls, you can use potato rolls.
