magic marshmallow puffs

My friend Lois is an amazing baker- she always comes up with the best and yummiest stuff, and seems to have a knack for making her baked goods better than anyone else!

I'm sharing a recipe that she gave me a few years ago- these ooey gooey, finger licking little pastry puffs are heavenly. 
I've served these at Easter dinner as an alternative to sweet rolls.
Make lots!  They don't last long!  :)


Magic Marshmallow Puffs
Puffs: 1/4 c. sugar
2 T flour
1 tsp cinnamon
2 8oz refrigerated crescent rolls
16 large marshmallows
1/4 cup butter, melted

Glaze: 1/2 c. powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
2-3 tsp. milk

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Spray 16 muffin cups generously with nonstick cooking spray. 
In a small bowl, combine sugar, flour and cinnamon.  Separate dough into 16 triangles. 
Dip one marshmallow in butter covering completely, then roll in sugar mixture.

Place marshmallow on shortest side of triangle.  Roll up, starting at shortest side of triangle and rolling to the opposite point.  Completely cover marshmallow with dough, firmly pinch edges to seal. Dip one end in remaining butter. Place butter side down in muffin cup.  Repeat with all.
Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden brown.  Remove from oven and cool one minute.  Drizzle glaze over warm rolls.

The magic is when you bite into these!  Pouf! The marshmallow has disappeared and it is a soft, sweet gooey roll.
Enjoy!
