There is a recipe an Amish cook sent me for”cinnamon cream cheese roll-ups.” The recipe duplicates this delicious treat that I stumbled upon at one of my favorite Amish bulk food stores in Indiana. I’d not say this is an “Amish recipe” in origin, but I can see why it has become popular with Amish cooks. These are right up the wheelhouse of most Plain cooks: a sweet, from-scratch dessert that is a hit with kids when they come home from school. And they are surprisingly easy to make, so the kids can help make them and eat them. Or in the case of adults – eat them and eat them and eat them – until they are gone. I’ve heard these called “crack sticks” before, because they are that addictive. My weight has yo-yo-ed all year long and stopping at Amish bakeries like the one I got these at has certainly been a contributing factor to the upward yo.
Store these in a sealed container and watch them disappear. I think I’d add a touch more cinnamon also, but that is just me:)
