Campfire Eclairs / Pie-Iron Cinnamon Rolls

Camping is one of my favorite things to do in the summer. If you do not like to camp you could still make these over your barbeque. Hope you can enjoy this crazy summer.

Campfire Eclairs

¾ to 1 inch wooden dowels, or a broom handle

Aluminum foil

Cooking spray

1 tube refrigerated crescent roll dough

2-3 vanilla pudding snack packs

1 can chocolate frosting

Wrap the end of your wood dowel with piece of foil and spray with cooking spray.

Separate the dough into the 8 pieces. Wrap a piece of dough around he foil end of the dowel. Hold it over the fire above the coals, not in the flames. Rotating until golden brown on all sides. Will take about 12-15 minutes but could be longer. Be patience as it will take a while.

When golden brown let cool slightly and gently slide off the end of the dowel. Let cool while you get the pudding ready. Carefully spoon the pudding into the shells. Top with chocolate frosting. Enjoy but we ready to get messy.

*Putting the pudding into a zip-lock bag, cut the corner off and then squeeze into the “shell” makes it a lot easier to fill them.

Pie-Iron Cinnamon Rolls

1 tube of refrigerated cinnamon rolls

Pie iron (check out what they are on-line)

Cooking spray

Spray the pie iron with cooking spray. Please 2 of the cinnamon rolls into the pie iron and close. Hold the pie iron over the coals, not in the flames. Rotate until golden brown, checking often. It will take about 10-12 minutes. Be very patience or it will burn.

Remove from heat and allow to sit for about 5 minutes the remaining heat will keep cooking the insides. Top with frosting that comes in the tube.

I love cooking with pie irons. Check out my other recipes for them at our web site
