Cinnamon Roll Pulls

Cinnamon Roll Pulls

Serves 4-6.

Let me share something with you: I've been wanting to tell you about this recipe for a while.  The first time I had it -- thank you, Cheryl! -- I was too overwhelmed with deliciousness to even think about snapping a photo.  The second time, I still didn't make it myself, but I HAD to take a picture (above) to send to my mom ("YOU HAVE GOT TO TRY THIS, MOM!").  The third time, I finally made it myself (below), and apparantly went a little overboard on the cinnamon sugar and a little UNDERboard on the powdered sugar glaze.  I'll have you know that it didn't change the experience.  Still one of the most delicious things I've ever eaten.  The. most. delicious. things. I. have. EVER. eaten.
Don't let another day in your life pass by without making this.  Brew some coffee, invite over a few friends, and... GO!

1 unsliced round loaf sourdough bread
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup honey
1 tsp pure vanilla extract

1 cup sugar
1 1/4 tsp cinnamon

1 cup powdered sugar
1-2 Tbsp milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

To make Vanilla Honey Butter: Whip butter and 1/4 cup powdered sugar together until smooth; stir in honey and vanilla. Set aside. (You can use regular butter if desired)

Cut the bread lengthwise into 1/2" slices, without cutting through the bottom crust. Spread vanilla honey butter in between slices. Rotate the bread 90 degrees and slice the bread again into 1/2" pieces, without cutting through the bottom crust. Spread more vanilla honey butter in between new cuts. This doesn't need to be perfect - just make sure there is lots of butter in between all the cuts. Combine sugar and cinnamon. Generously sprinkle in between all cuts. (You may have extra butter and cinnamon sugar. It will just depend on how large your bread loaf is.)

Wrap in foil; place on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes, until bread is warm. Unwrap cinnamon bread and place on serving platter. Combine powdered sugar and milk - adding milk until you get the consistency desired. Drizzle icing over bread and serve immediately.
