I purchased 3 packages of refrigerated cinnamon roll dough.  These are the packages that contain 8 cinnamon rolls each.  The cinnamon rolls were each placed into  a cup of a muffin pan that had been sprayed with non-stick spray.  Cinnamon Roll Muffins The pans were then placed in a 375 degree preheated oven and baked for about 15 minutes.  At the end of the cooking time, the cinnamon rolls will have raised and filled the cupcake pan.  Cinnamon roll muffinOnce they were baked, the cinnamon rolls were removed to a cooling rack and allowed to cool before being iced.  Cinnamon Roll MuffinsThe final cinnamon rolls were delicious.  We even baked a tube full of orange rolls, too.   Even Food Critic enjoyed these cinnamon rolls.  Cinnamon Roll MuffinsHere are the printable instructions.  We hope you enjoy them.
