a piping bag with a 1/4- or 3/8-inch nozzle, optional
For the cinnamon roll spread: Use a fork to combine the butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt in a medium bowl until combined and uniform. Set aside.
For the cream cheese icing: Use a hand mixer to beat the cream cheese and butter in a medium bowl until combined. Then add the powdered sugar and salt and carefully mix until combined and uniform. Spoon into a piping bag with a 1/4- or 3/8-inch nozzle or a ziptop storage bag and snip a small piece off the end, 1/4 to 3/8 inch wide. Set aside.
For the matzah brei: In another medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, granulated sugar and salt until uniform.
Break the matzah into bite-sized pieces and put into a separate bowl. Pour on the milk until covered and let sit for 30 to 60 seconds, just until softened; you don’t want to make the matzah mushy. Drain through a sieve, add the matzah to the egg mixture and mix to combine.
Heat a large nonstick pan over medium heat and add half the butter to melt.
Spoon a quarter of the matzah mixture (about 1/3 cup) into the pan and form into a flat pancake. Repeat with another pancake if there is room in your pan. Have your cinnamon roll spread ready nearby. Fry the pancakes for 2 minutes, or until the bottoms are cooked but not browned. Flip and immediately spoon 1 tablespoon of the cinnamon roll spread onto the middle of each pancake. Spread around the pancake as it melts, leaving the edges exposed. Fry for 1 more minute, or until cooked through.
Repeat with the rest of the matzah mixture and cinnamon roll spread to make another 2 pancakes, adding the remaining butter to the pan. Swirl a generous amount of cream cheese icing onto each pancake and serve immediately with more icing!
Powdered sugar is kitniyot and is not consumed in Ashkenazi communities during Passover.
