  • Preparation Time:



  • Dough
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water (105° to 110°f)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup margarine, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 to 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • Filling
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup margarine, melted
  • Icing
  • 2 c. icing sugar
  • 2 T. milk
  • 1 T. corn syrup
  • 1 t. vanilla


  • Dissolve yeast in warm water in a small bowl or measuring cup and let it sit for 5 minutes.
  • Combine sugar with milk and melted margarine in a large bowl. Mix in egg and salt.
  • Mix in 1 cup of flour. When flour is combined, mix in 1 more cup of flour. Mix in the yeast solution, and then stir in the remaining flour with a wooden spoon.
  • Use your hands to form the dough into a ball, and then put the dough back into the bowl, cover it and store it in a warm place for about 1 1/2 hours.
  • Mix the filling ingredients together in a medium bowl, and set aside until needed.
  • Roll the dough out on a floured surface until about 1/2-inch thick. Use a pizza cutter to slice dough into approximately 1/2-inch wide strips, and then slice those strips into 1/2-inch long chunks of dough.
  • Use softened margarine to grease the cups of a large muffin tin (or place large muffin papers in muffin tin).
  • Drop 6 chunks of dough into the bottom of each cup. Spoon 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon filling over the dough. Drop 7 more pieces of dough onto the filling in each cup, and then spoon 2 teaspoons of filling over the top of the dough.
  • Cover the muffin tin with a cloth or plastic wrap and let the dough sit in a warm spot for 30 minutes so that it rises a little more.
  • Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  • Bake cinnaMelts for 15 to 20 minutes or until dough turns light brown. As the cinnaMelts cool, make the icing by mixing together all of the icing ingredients.
  • Spoon about 1 Tablespoon of icing over the top of each cinnaMelt. Let stand until icing is set.
  • Makes 12.
