Breakfast Cinnamon Bites

This week I wanted to make my hubs a yummy and portable breakfast he could take to the office.  With a short work week, I was getting in the Christmas (and baking) sprit!
With the yummy cream cheese frosting!
These breakfast cinnamon bites are a bit messy to make, but really tasty.  I made some with cream cheese frosting for the hubs, and kept a few dry ones for me!  The ones with frosting were definitely a favorite, and were a cross between a cinnamon roll and a cinnamon biscuit.

I have a couple other similar and delicious breakfast recipes cinnamon biscuits and monkey bread but this treat is great treat to take to work since it is portable and you don't need a fork! 

You'll Need:
1  1/3 cups flour
1 cup of rice krispy cereal, crushed
2 1/2 tablespoons plus 1/2 cup sugar, divided
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup shortening
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 cup butter melted

1. Mix flour, crushed cereal, 2 1/2 tablespoons sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl

2. Add shortening and fork until the mixture is coarse crumbs
3. Add milk and stir into dough
4. Roll doll into small balls (about 2 dozen)
5. Mix cinnamon and remaining sugar in a bowl.  
6.  Drop the balls into melted butter and roll in cinnamon mixture
7.  Place balls onto a greased pan (uses a cookie sheet if you want them to stay round, or for a fun monkey break type look put in a round pan)

8. Cook for 15 minutes on 425. 

Notes: These taste better cold!  My taste testers (hubs and both brothers) liked it better with the cream cheese icing

delicious cinnamon breakfast bites without frosting!
