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.

    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!

    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
