Marshmallow Puffs

"This is something I've wanted to try for a long time and finally got the opportunity. It's from a little booklet of recipes I got ages ago - Breads, Breads and more Breads, copyright 1983 by the Pillsbury Company. The marshmallows melt during baking, which leaves a hollow center coated with cinnamon. One change I would do is to make more of the sugar-cinnamon filling mix. I ended up doing that while making these. Prep time is approximate and does not include rising times. The filling can spill out during the baking, so be aware of that. Maybe put a cookie sheet underneath to catch the spills. They were fun to make and I'll certainly make them again."

    These things are what you call a sleeper! They are delicious! Nice and googy and sticky on the bottom and what a surprise when you bite into them and they are hollow on the inside. My neighbors and I ALL gave them a 5 after only eating just one. Need I say they didn't last long. A Fabulous recipe and a keeper.

    I made these in school when I was younger using refrigerated crescent roll dough. They are so good! I'm glad you posted this recipe.

    If you follow this recipe exactly, you are working TOO hard! Instead of making the dough and all that is involved with that step, just use a tube of refrigerated crescent rolls! Seperate into triangles, and wrap 1 coated marshmallow with 1 triangle of crescent dough. Streach the triangle to cover the entire mallow, and pinch at the seams! This is DELICIOUS and will save you SO MUCH TIME!!!! Your company, that you are trying to impress, will never know you cheated!!!

    These were a hit at my house and with company, as well. They do take a little time to make, but are worth it. I served for breakfast along with a couple other items, and these were the most popular. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
