Forget Delivery! Make Your Own CinnaSticks At Home


I have been drawing a total blank all day about One Good Thing to post tonight. It’s weird. I usually have to decided between several ideas….but tonight….nothing.  Not that I don’t have a gazillion things I want to eventually get to….but for some reason, tonight nothing grabbed me…I felt completely uninspired.

Until I stumbled upon THIS…..cinnasticks

For some reason….THIS GRABBED ME!  :-)  I must be suffering from a gluten deficiency

tonight….because these homemade Cinna Sticks are calling out my name!  Since I eat gluten-free 98% of the time because of my son’s Celiac’s…once in awhile I will get a practically uncontrollable craving for something doughy, and yeasty and gluten-FILLED!  Add to that one of my favorite “flavors” on earth….cinnamon & sugar, and then add to THAT…powdered sugar icing…..and well, I surrender!

My thanks to Ali at Jam Hands for saving me from my “blogger’s block” tonight….and for providing me with wonderful recipe to add to my “Gluten-Free Vacation File”. shhhh…..don’t tell my son about it.  This will just be our little secret.

Cinnasticks Copycat 

Makes one pizza

prepared dough, rolled out into a square or circle
buttered flavored oil (I used a kind meant for popcorn and it worked great)
2 tsp. cinnamon (more if you are a cinnamon fan)
1/2 c. sugar

several cups powdered sugar
small splash of milk
1 Tbsp. melted butter
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract

1. Preheat oven to 350-f degrees.
2. Using a perforated roller (preferably) or a pizza cutter, cut the dough into strips. Brush the dough with the flavored oil. Bake for about 15 minutes until cooked through, keeping a close eye on it so it doesn’t over bake. Remove from oven. While the dough is baking, prepare the icing by combining the icing ingredients in a mixing bowl and set aside.
3. Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and stir together well. Sprinkle the mixture over the warm dough. Drizzle with the prepared icing. Serve warm.

Now……I must go see about smuggling in some pizza dough…….someone create a distraction! :-)

    Hi Jill,
    I am new to your site and absolutely love it! I have so many things I want to try,I don't know where to start. I am a gluten-free baker, and I make cinnamon type goodies all the time. You can easily make these gluten-free for yourself and your son. If you haven't already checked them out, I recommend the cookbooks from Roben Ryberg. She is not celiac which is great because she can make the wheat version and gluten-free versions side by side. I have converted her breadstick recipe and now use it for everything from cinnamon raisin rolls to hamburger buns to pizza crust. The book is called "The Gluten-Free Kitchen." Keep those fantastic ideas coming!

    That’s actually very similar to how pizza hut makes there. Only difference is they do the cinnamon and sugar before cooking and cut into strips after.

    Several cups of powdered sugar???? What does that mean? 2 ? 3? 4? 10 ? If used too much the butter and milk will be too much. Could you please inform us how much you used instead?

    several cups powdered sugar
    small splash of milk
    1 Tbsp. melted butter
    1/4 tsp. vanilla extract

    I am a huge fan of the 5 Minute Bread books. This is a great idea for the dough that I always have in the fridge. THANKS!
