Happy Cinnamon Roll Friday! Every Friday we start the weekend off right by having cinnamon rolls. I make them up, store them in the freezer, and bake as many as I need each Friday. Such a nice way to start the weekend.
A friend of mine explained to me that she’s having trouble rolling out the cinnamon rolls. Well, let me back up a second. She made my mini cinnamon rolls, and served them to her family (that normally doesn’t care for anything new). She told me that one of the comments she got about the rolls was, “they taste real”. That rocks! Real! Perfect. However, she said they weren’t very pretty because her rolling skills aren’t quite there. (Though I never saw a picture of the baked goods. She said they were eaten too quickly to have photo evidence taken).
I’ve invited her over for a cinnamon roll rolling tutorial. Unfortunately, the timing hasn’t quite worked out yet. So, I thought I’d do a tutorial here for her. With animated movies and everything!
For the tutorial, I’ll pick up with the dough already rolled out to the 11×18-inch rectangle, the cinnamon-sugar filling has been sprinkled on the dough and pressed into the dough. Notice that the cinnamon sugar doesn’t reach all the way to the edges. Leave 1/2 to 1-inch without sugar.
