These easy cinnamon rolls hand pies are perfect for the day after Mother’s Day. I am guilty of featuring fancy pant desserts in the days leading up mom’s big day. I’ve shared a Mimosa Bundt Cake, a Hummingbird Coffee Cake, and Key Lime Waffles in the hopes of inspiring us to treat mom to something as special and sweet she is.
But here we are the day after Mother’s Day, and we have forgotten all our praises and declarations of love and have gone back to our usual ways. There are no more special breakfasts or lunches. Mom is back to cooking and cleaning just as she was on the day before Mother’s Day.
It doesn’t have to be that way. If you made these easy cinnamon rolls hand pies, then mom could munch on them with her coffee today, tomorrow and the next day. They are the gift that keeps on giving.
Easy Cinnamon Rolls Hand Pies
The method for this recipe comes from my lemon hand pies. They do take planning, as the dough needs to be chilled (15 minutes is all). However, since you are using store bought pie crust, the entire recipe is a snap to prepare.
My filling is a creamy blend of butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and Blue Diamond Honey Roasted Almonds. The almonds add crunch and deep, naturally sweet flavor. The cream cheese icing is tangy enough to balance out that sweet, cinnamon filling.
There you have it; an easy cinnamon rolls recipe that will compliment your morning coffee, top off your evening meal or satisfy your sweet tooth at any moment in between.
