Slow cooker cinnamon roll casserole
Cooktop Cove 
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Total time: 1 hours, 55 minutes
Serves: 4-6
12.4-ounce can refrigerated cinnamon roll dough
½ cup whipping cream
4 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon nutmeg
Sugar icing (optional, often included in cinnamon roll dough canister)
1. Remove the cinnamon dough from the can. Cut each piece into quarters.
2. In a large bowl, combine the whipping cream, eggs, vanilla extract, maple syrup, cinnamon and nutmeg. Whisk until smooth.
3. Place three-fourths of the quartered pieces of cinnamon roll dough into the bottom of a 4-quart slow cooker. Pour the cream mixture over the top. Layer the remaining pieces of dough on top.
4. Cover and cook on high for 1 hour, 45 minutes. If your cinnamon dough came with icing, drizzle this over the warm casserole before serving.
Pro tip: For a more festive flavor, leave out the nutmeg from this recipe and instead mix the zest of 1 clementine orange with 1 tablespoon granulated sugar. Sprinkle over the cooked casserole instead of the icing.
Note: All slow cookers are a little bit different in temperature and calibration. This recipe was tested in Cooktop Cove's Test Kitchen using this slow cooker, which is available for purchase here.
