Wheat Germ Breakfast Rolls

This is a great make ahead breakfast/brunch treat.  The rolls can be frozen after baking and frosted at the last minute.  Even with a confectioner's sugar frosting these are pretty low in total sugar.   Being bite-sized, people just can't resist one or two or three....

Wheat Germ Breakfast Rolls

1½ c. Unsifted flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
½  cup wheat germ
½ teaspoon cream of tartar

Cut in 1/3 cup shortening

Stir till blended.  Turn out on floured surface.  Knead gently about 20 times.  Divide in half.  Roll out into 7x12 rectangle.  Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.  Roll up like cinnamon rolls and cut into 12 pieces.  Repeat with second half.  Place in well greased miniature muffin pans.  Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes. 

Drizzle with powdered sugar glaze when cool.
