Cinnamon Cream Cheese Roll-Ups

  Cinnamon Cream Cheese Roll-Ups
1 loaf (16 ounces) thinly sliced white bread, crusts removed
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup confectioners sugar
1 cup sugar
1-1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cup butter, melted
Flatten bread with a rolling-pin. In a bowl, combine cream cheese and confectioners’ sugar. In another bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon; set aside. Spread about 1 tablespoon of cheese mixture on each slice of bread. Roll up, jelly roll style. Dip in melted butter, then in cinnamon-sugar. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 16 roll-ups.
One of the best things about these little roll ups is that they are delicious warm, room temp or even cold.
Make it Special:  Churros are typically served in some kind of paper because they are a little greasy.  Take a piece of parchment paper and roll it into a cone shape, place the cone into a short drinking glass or a vase if you have it, then set a few of the roll ups inside the cone.  Easy serving and you can just set them around the table so your guests can easily grab one as they walk by.
