Last week I came upon this recipe over at Cooking During Stolen Moments and it intrigued me, so of course I had to try it out. With butter, cream cheese and cinnamon sugar how could you go wrong!  When you see how they are made this woman is a genius!! They were a little time consuming but oh so worth it. Everyone could not wait until they were out of the oven.  Both my hubby and son burnt themselves from eating them as soon as I took them out. My son said they tasted like cinnamon roll bites.  They were a HUGE hit and my family ate every single one that afternoon. 
Mini Blinis
1 pound thinly sliced commercial white bread
1- 8 oz. cream cheese
1 cup sugar
2 egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup sugar mixed with 2 teaspoons cinnamon
Carefully cut the crust off each slice of bread.
With a rolling pin, gently flatten each slice of bread until it is paper thin.
In a small bowl, beat together the cream cheese, 1 cup sugar, egg yolks and vanilla until smooth.
Spread a layer of cream cheese mixture onto each slice of bread and roll up jelly roll style.
Roll each piece in melted butter then in the cinnamon sugar mixture. (I cut each roll in half first).
Place on a cookie sheet and freeze for about 30 minutes to 1 hour.  Then transfer them into a freezer bag.
They will hold together better if you do this first.  
When ready to cook  preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake for 15-18 minutes, until lightly golden brown on the edges.
