glazed cinnamon balls.

Each sunday session of General Conference, as a family we look forward to cinnamon rolls.  Although they are never homemade, they are still delicious.  Now that I am in college I still try and keep the traditions alive for myself.  But when there is one of me and how many cinnamon rolls in a pan?? It doesn't work out so well.  So I decided make cinnamon balls and share with the roommates and neighbors. Obviously they glazed. Because that is the best part!  So this was a first time recipe that as a family we haven't tried but I thought they turned out quite well and I wanted to share! 

Glazed Cinnamon Balls
**Pre-heat oven: 425 degrees.**

1 1/3 cups flour
1 cup fiber one cereal. Coarsely crushed
(any cereal would probably work. this is just what i had, crisp rice would be a good suggestion to use.)
2 tablespoons sugar.
3 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
¼ cup butter- room temp.
½ cup milk

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ cup sugar
¼ cup butter. Melted

Mix flour, cereal, sugar, baking powder and salt together.  
Add butter and mix with a fork. 
Add milk.  stir throughly. Dough should be able to roll into balls with out being too sticky. 
Roll into about 1 inch balls. 
In another container mix cinnamon and sugar. 
Melt butter in another bowl.  
Using your fingers roll balls into melted butter and then roll in the sugar mixture. 
Put in a 8x8 pan. (really any pan will work.) it is ok if the balls touch.  
Cook for 13-16 min. or until a toothpick will come out clean.
Let cool while preparing glaze.

Browned Butter Frosting

1/4 cup butter
2 cups powdered sugar
3/4 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoon milk

Heat butter in a saucepan over medium heat. until it is boiling and a brownish color
Remove from the heat and immediately add the remaining ingredients.
The consistency should be thicker then a glaze but thinner then a frosting.
Place the glaze in a plastic bag and cut the corner.
Slowly move over the balls with plastic bag creating beautiful lines of delicious frosting!
