Crispy Cinnamon Rollups

These are those wonderful little breads filled with cream cheese, rolled in a cinnamon sugar mixture, frozen and then baked. Very quick! Wonderful for a baby shower or bridal shower, and ever so easy! They are not, however, a diet food!

Original recipe makes 48 rolls


1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 cup margarine, softened
2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
2 egg yolks
48 slices white bread, crusts trimmed
1/2 cup margarine, melted


  1. In a bowl combine the cinnamon with 1 cup of the sugar and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl cream together the softened butter or margarine, cream cheese, egg yolks and the remaining 1/2 cup sugar. Spread this mixture on the pieces of bread and roll them up. Brush each roll with the melted butter or margarine and roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Place rollups seam side down on a lightly greased cookie sheet, cover tightly with plastic wrap or aluminum foil and freeze.
  3. 30 minutes before baking, preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Do not thaw the rolls before baking. Remove rolls from the freezer, uncover and bake for 15 minutes at 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Serve hot.
