These Cinnamon cheese Roll-Ups are the simplest thing to happen to sliced bread since sliced bread!

I was moved to reintroduce this recipe as it’s one among my most visited and pinned posts.

While organizing my recipe drawer I stumbled upon directions for a dessert that I hadn’t made in years. This small torn and tattered recipe card, wedged between the pages of alittle book, had made its way back to my attention.

This dessert, aromatic and fancy (to me) created quite the shock for all folks once we discovered that its main ingredient was sliced bread.

Cinnamon Cream Cheese Roll-Ups


  • 20 slices white bread, crusts removed
  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • ½ tsp. vanilla
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1½ tsp. ground cinnamon

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. One at a time, roll out each slice of bread until flattened.
  3. In a medium sized bowl, beat cream cheese, vanilla and ¼ cup of sugar.
  4. In a small bowl, combine remaining ¾ cup of sugar and cinnamon, and set aside.
  5. Divide cream cheese mixture and spread on each slice of bread (about 1 Tbsp./slice).
  6. Roll up each slice.
  7. Dip each roll in melted butter so that it's fully covered.
