Cinnamon Rolls

 

9B79C33F-15A5-4789-8295-A3FB2D8BFEA1Did you know that you can make Cinnamon Rolls using frozen bread dough? Normally I would make Cinnamon Rolls by making my own dough but I wanted to try this to show you an easier way to make them. These are small bite size Cinnamon Rolls and are they delicious!

Ingredients

 

2C745BC8-D234-49D6-8A9F-F7755A93E7A3

Butter a 9” x 13” pan.

 

E1FB695D-DAC7-4F48-A6F0-B596DD218114

Roll the dough into a thin layer of flour and about 20” in length.

 

D2977818-4BE1-4985-BE43-F24DFF93F9F3

Use a rolling-pin and roll the dough into a

rectangle that is about 6” – 8” wide by 20” length.

 

5E0001F8-4AE0-418E-A39C-A96C9CEA895D

Brush the melted butter all over the top of the dough.

 

9A8B2513-80B1-48CD-939A-E21178FDECBA

Sprinkle the dough with the cinnamon.

Sprinkle the dough with the brown sugar.

Roll the dough into a log, rolling at the long side.

Wet the edge of the dough to seal it.

Using a serrated knife, cut the ends off evenly and

slice the roll into 20 pieces.

 

BF2C6C6F-7625-4EDA-AB95-B1B1189DCE82

Place the rolls, cut side down, evenly on the prepared pan.

Cover with a towel trying to keep it from touching the rolls.

 

B8D20985-A6F2-4253-8F4E-8F2F57D42F23

Let the rolls rise for about 1 to 1-1/2 hours in a warm place.

I rise mine in my oven by turning on my electric

oven for about 1 – 2 minutes then turn it off.

If you have a gas oven with a pilot light….perfect! No need to add any more heat.

I repeated turning the oven on about every half hour for ONLY 1-2 minutes.

The dough should double in size. The heat from rising them in the oven

created the cinnamon liquid in the bottom of the pan.

Gently drizzle a little cream on each roll,

I used a spoon to do this.

 

FF39EA1A-7541-4E00-918B-07C264F2230F

Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 – 25 minutes or until golden brown.

As soon as they are cool enough to pick up with

your hand but still very warm, take them out one at a time

sliding them in that delicious gooey cinnamon glaze on the bottom.

Place them on a plate glaze side up.

 

94F5388C-D303-4212-AA5E-73BD61FCC6D3

In a small bowl, sift the powdered sugar.

 

2C6011C0-8CFC-4D98-81A7-BA55BCEA1654

Add the milk and vanilla stirring until smooth.

Add more milk or powdered sugar until you

get the right consistency if needed.

Drizzle over the tops of the rolls.

    • These are mini cinnamon rolls. We ate 3 at a time…lol But you definitely could cut the recipe in half. I’m not sure about freezing the dough again though since the bread dough was frozen to start with but you definitely could try.

    • I use that method with larger dough but this is like mini cinnamon rolls and the dental floss I would normally use would smash these. It is a great method though. I have never tried thread, just unflavored waxed dental floss. Does regular thread work well too? I always thought the waxed coating would help keep the dough from sticking to it.

  1. I’m not sure whether to be disappointed, or glad that we can’t get the ready made dough here in Australia. Having it would make baking all those treats that I’m best off ignoring, far to easy. I’ll just continue to drool at the photos….
