I found it helpful to lay out a piece of parchment paper when I unrolled the rolls and made the tree shapes. Some of the cinnamon falls off, so making them on the parchment paper will help to collect the cinnamon droppings. After I made the tree shapes, I spread the loose cinnamon on top of each tree.

Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and transfer the tree shapes to the baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.
