  • 1 Waffle Maker


  • 1 Can Cinnamon Buns Included Cream Cheese Glaze (optional)


  • Get Your Waffle Maker Ready - Spray a preheated waffle maker with a nonstick cooking spray. Yes, even if it has a nonstick coating. As opposed to traditional waffles, you'll be dealing with a gooey cinnamon-sugar filling. A nonstick spray will make sure you're not scrubbing away at cooked on sugar while your family is off having fun. Don't have any spray on hand? Use a paper towel to quickly wipe olive oil or canola oil across the irons.
  • Flatten The Cinnamon Rolls - Because these puff pastry cinnamon rolls are much thicker than typical waffle batter, they're not going to flow into all of the nooks and crannies of your waffle maker. To help them cook evenly and fill the space, press each roll flat using your hands.
  • Place The Cinnamon Rolls - Many waffle makers have spots for four separate waffles. If you're using canned refrigerated cinnamon rolls, one roll equates to one waffle. So, you'll need to lay out four waffles. If you're using a Belgian waffle iron, simply space the rolls out evenly.
  • Cook The Waffles! - Simply lower the lid and cook your waffles! A batch will take 3-4 minutes. Remove cooked waffles using a knife or fork, add your toppings, and enjoy!
