The best part of waking up is NOT Folger’s in your cup. That is caffeinated propaganda. The best part of waking up is smelling these easy cinnamon roll turnovers baking up in your kitchen! Now that’s an aroma worth waking up to.
I have to admit, I’m really proud of this recipe. I’ve had a lone cinnamon roll tube sitting in my refrigerator for months now. I knew I would use it for something other than cinnamon rolls but I wasn’t exactly sure what it would be. Cinnamon rolls are wonderful, especially peach cinnamon rolls. But sometimes it is fun taking something ordinary and turning them into something unique and delicious! I’ve stuffed biscuits with spicy chicken before, I figured I could certainly stuff cinnamon rolls with peaches!
This recipe is crazy easy, but there are a few things to discuss. As mentioned above, I used a tube of large cinnamon rolls. Before you begin rolling out your rolls, make sure to heavily flour your work surface AND your rolling pin. Otherwise the rolls will stick to either your pin or surface; plus they will pull apart. Flatten each roll into roughly a six inch circle. Then you are ready to fill each one.
I combined frozen peaches with brown sugar, a bit of cinnamon and almond extract. I only added two or three peach slices to each cinnamon roll half. You can add more if your peach slices are on the small side. Now for the tricky party. As you fold your cinnamon roll dough over the peaches, be sure to pinch the dough together. Cinnamon rolls naturally want to pull apart. Pinch the dough to cover up the peaches the best you can. It is totally ok, however if some of the peaches peak out. Your turnovers will look a bit more rustic, but will still look and taste beautiful.
I drizzled each turnover with almond milk and powdered sugar. The almond milk paired perfectly with the almond infused peaches.
If you are searching for a unique but delicious way to use your cinnamon rolls or your peaches, then this is it!
