Cinnamon Cream Cheese Sticks

 Happy Friday!  Finally, the end of the week!  Ready for a great weekend treat?  I figured out a way I could keep cooking hygienically without my bandages freaking me out!  A glove!  NOTE: In the video of this recipe, the blue glove made my camera go orange, I apologize and know that for next time.  

These are in an entirely different zip code of goodness.  My mother-in-law made these years ago when they were super popular, don't know if they still are but I have never made them, so I wanted to try it.  Super easy and oh so delicious.  You can't NOT love these, I am convinced!  Not only are these a perfect dessert or treat but perfect for a brunch or big breakfast as well!

I believe they are also known as "crack sticks or rolls", I don't care for that name, so I call them cinnamon cream cheese sticks.  Just as a side note!  Let's get this party started...

You will need:

  • 1, 8oz block of cream cheese at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar (confectioners sugar, icing sugar)
  • 1 loaf of white sandwich bread
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Flatten bread with a rolling pin.  You can cut off the crusts or not, I have never and will never cut off a crust!  Ok, I might but...  In a bowl using a hand mixer combine cream cheese and powdered sugar until a smooth consistency is achieved.  In a second bowl combine white granulated sugar and cinnamon, make sure it is also well mixed.  In a third bowl, simply melt your butter.

Now spread some cream cheese on your piece of bread, roll it up like you would a jelly roll, the cream cheese will hold it together, dip in the butter, then cover in cinnamon sugar and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silpat.  Do this until you are out of cream cheese, I would say anywhere from 10-14 rolls.  Just depends on how generous you are with the cream cheese.  

Bake for 20 minutes and prepare yourself for a little bit of heaven!  Store in airtight container!



  1. At some point I will try these! Can they be made ahead and frozen?

    1. Absolutely they can be frozen. Take them out and refrigerate the night or morning before eating them! ENJOY!!
