I wanted to do something different for Christmas morning. In years past I've done dessert crepes, but I'm a little tired of that. In a recent magazine I saw a "wreathe" made from canned cinnamon rolls that were placed in a circle on a cookie sheet to bake, coated with the white icing and then decorated with red and green icing "mistletoe." That had some potential, but the sugar levels were pretty high.
Then, it occurred to me to look in my vintage books and see what I could come up with. This is what I found (click on pics to enlarge).
The recipe had comparatively less sugar than the first one I found. It also had nuts. I love nuts. This is from a book for children, so it's nice and clear. I need that. I don't have a 9" ring mold or anything that resembles it. Any suggestions?
There was even a picture showing how to make it all happen. I like that each ball was rolled in the cinnamon mixture:
Finally, the Jolly Breakfast Ring in all its glory. Notice how, along with a bit less sugar, it's paired with the suggestion that you have a little protein with this meal. Yes, it has Bisquick, but I like how it's more balanced than the recipe I saw in the modern magazine.
