Nutty Honey Mini Rolls
These are lovely little bites to serve with the first cup of coffee in the morning...
1/4 cup finely chopped toasted almonds
2 Tbsp butter, softened
2 Tbsp honey
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 pkg refrigerated crescent roll dough
1 recipe honey icing
1. Preheat oven to 375F. Lightly grease 24 mini muffin cups with cooking spray, set aside. Reserve 2 tbsp of the almonds, For filling, in a small bowl stir together the remaining 2 tbsp almonds, the butter, honey, and cinnamon; set aside.
2. Unroll the dough and cut into two equal rectangles, pinching the edges to form two pieces.
3. Spread the filling on the dough to within 1/4" of the edges. Starting at the long edge, roll up the dough to form two rolls. Pinch the seams. Slice each roll into about 12 pieces (mine are usually about 9). Place each piece in the muffin cups.
4. Bake about 10 minutes or until nice and golden. Cool in the cups for about 1 minutes then remove. Cool slightly then drizzle with the icing. Sprinkle with the remaining almonds.
Stir together 1 cup powdered sugar, 2 tbsp honey, and 1 tbsp milk. If needed add a little more milk so that it is drizzly.
Makes about 20-24 rolls.
