3. Java-Glazed Cinnamon Rolls
You can effortlessly indulge in Pillsbury’s recipe for coffee-glazed cinnamon rolls by using refrigerated rolls and preparing a java icing to slather on top. Take your National Coffee Day celebration one step farther by preparing your own flavored coffee as well. To make your own, choose the flavoring of your choice, such as chopped cinnamon sticks, toasted coconut, or hazelnuts, and mix it with whole roasted coffee beans, using a 1-to-2, flavoring to coffee ratio. Store together for a few days, then grind your blend and brew, Martha Stewart explains.
- 1 can (17.5 ounces) refrigerated cinnamon rolls with cream cheese icing (5 rolls)
- 2 tablespoons milk
- ¼ teaspoon instant coffee granules or crystals
- ½ cup white baking chips
- ½ cup chopped pecans
Directions: Heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray 9-inch round cake pan with no-stick cooking spray. Place cinnamon rolls in pan; reserve icing. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly. Meanwhile, in small microwavable bowl, microwave 1 tablespoon of the milk uncovered on high about 20 seconds or until hot; stir in coffee granules until completely dissolved. Stir in reserved icing.
Microwave uncovered on high 25 seconds. Stir in baking chips and remaining 1 tablespoon milk. Microwave 25 seconds longer; stir until chips are completely melted. Microwave in additional 10-second increments, if necessary, until chips are melted. Stir pecans into icing mixture. Pour over rolls. Serve warm.
