Cinnamon Sugar Sticks

Last week, my mom and siblings came to visit.  After a fun filled day at the splash pad, we realized all our stomachs were growling for food. We came home and made a delicious pizza. There was enough leftover dough for some breadsticks… but since we all have such a sweet tooth, we decided it would be in all of our best interests to make some cinnamon sugar sticks with a frosting dip!  They were incredible!

Cinnamon Sugar Sticks
 
These are SO easy to make and they taste absolutely delicious! The frosting dip is the perfect addition!
Recipe type: Dessert
Ingredients
  • 1¾ cup hot water
  • ½ Tbsp. salt
  • ⅛ cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. yeast
  • 4-5 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. dough enhancer
  • 3-4 Tbsp. softened butter
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 2-4 tsp. ground cinnamon
FROSTING DIP
  • ¼ cup softened butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 3-6 Tbsp. heavy cream, more or less depending on your consistency preference
  • 2-3 cups powdered sugar, more or less depending on your consistency preference
Instructions
  1. Preheat your baking Stone to 500. Combine all ingredients in mixing bowl and knead for eight minutes. (A Kitchen Aid or Bosch work best.)
  2. Divide dough into 2 sections. Roll each section out into a circle shape until it reaches about ½ inch thick.
  3. Rub 1-2 Tbsp. softened butter over the top. Mix cinnamon and sugar together in a small bowl. Pour desired amount over the top of softened butter.
  4. Place oven ready cinnamon-sugar dough onto preheated baking stone. Bake at 500 degrees F for 7 minutes or until done.
  5. Once it is done, immediately brush a little more butter over the top with a pastry brush and sprinkle with a little more cinnamon-sugar.
  6. Repeat for remaining dough. Cut and serve with frosting dip.
For Frosting Dip
  1. Beat softened butter until creamy. Add in vanilla, heavy cream and powdered sugar. Beat until well blended. Add more milk/powdered sugar as needed to reach desired consistency.

Enjoy!

**NOTE: Dough enhancer creates an enhanced environment for the growth of yeast helping to make your breads more uniform and also lighter.  It also strengthens the gluten structure in the dough to create a better crumb to your loaves.  It can also help your bread stay fresher longer.  I always get it at Kitchen Kneads or any local kitchen store.

    Hello, I was wondering what dough enhancer is? I've never heard of it before!

      It creates an enhanced environment for the growth of yeast helping to make your breads more uniform and also lighter. It also strengthens the gluten structure in the dough to create a better crumb to your loaves. It can also help your bread stay fresher longer. I always get it at Kitchen Kneads, but I think you can get it at walmart, too. I posted a pic of what I use above.

    Looks so good! Think I might cheat and make this using the pre-made dough we buy at Trader Joe's.

    Looks yum!!Can it be baked on cookie sheet instead of baking stone? Will the baking temp remain same??

    I made these tonight minus the dough enhancer (didn't have any on hand) and they were so yummy! I have made dessert pizza before with brown sugar and I'm wondering if these would work with brown sugar instead of cinnamon sugar? What do you think?

    Viewing this from the UK, I would find it helpful if you could put the ingredients in grams and/or ounces as well, as using volume is something that I find frustrating. Also, some of the American baking/cooking products aren't available this side of the pond!
