Cinnamon Cream Roll-ups

A teacher I taught with brought these to the teacher's lounge once and we all loved them. I got the recipe from her. When ever I take these some place they are so-o-o-o much enjoyed that I am asked to bring them again the next time. This has happened repeatedly with two different groups with which I have regular meetings.

These are very tasty! I used the crustless bread, which made making this recipe a breeze. I was being very skimpy on spreading the cream cheese mixture at first because I thought that surely there wasn't enough mixture to go on all the bread pieces. Well, I was wrong and went back and slathered it on each piece! Delicious! I did expect these to be crispy, almost like they would be if you fried them, but they never did get that way completely. They had a thin crispy layer on the outside and the rest was soft and yummy! My kids devoured these!

I took this to our Christmas breakfast at the school where I teach and it was a hit. I had only one left, and it was quickly eaten by my son when I got home. And now I have to make another recipe so he has some to eat. Very good!
