Cinnamon Cream Cheese Roll-ups


20 slices white bread, crusts removed

8 oz. cream cheese, softened

1/2 tsp. vanilla

1 cup sugar

1 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

2/3 cup melted butter


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Using a rolling pin, roll out each slice of bread until flattened. In a medium sized bowl, beat cream cheese, vanilla and 1/4 cup of sugar with an electric mixer. In a small bowl, combine remaining 3/4 cup of sugar and cinnamon, and set aside. Divide cream cheese mixture evenly and spread on each slice of bread (about 1 Tbsp./slice).  Roll up each slice.  Using a pastry brush coat each roll with melted butter until fully covered.  Then roll each in cinnamon sugar mix. Arrange, seam-side down, on baking sheet.  Bake for 15-18 minutes until rolls start to puff.  Serve warm with cinnamon infused cream.
