Cinnamon rolls are one of my all-time favorite pastries. I don’t treat myself to them often because they are so decadent…and caloric. But when I DO treat myself, I want super yummy ones.
I love to bake on the weekend because I have the time to take my time. Baking is such an exact science – especially when dough is involved. Yet, it truly is an art. Knowing how sticky or not sticky the dough needs to be, or when to pull a bake out of the oven takes a lot of practice…and patience…and trust in yourself and your baking abilities.
This recipe is great for beginning bakers because you don’t need to let the dough rise – it doesn’t have any yeast in it. And it’s a very forgiving dough. A perfect, foolproof way to start dabbling in the baking world.
A couple of notes before you get started. First, this recipe takes about 1 to 1 1/2 hours to make – so plan ahead. If you don’t use your time wisely, your breakfast pastry could easily turn into a brunch bread. Also, you’re going to need either a ruler or a dough/pizza mat to measure out your dough. It’s very important to measure out the dough before you roll it out, or the individual rolls won’t fit right in the pan.
When you’re rolling the dough, be sure to roll the dough fairly tightly and pinch the final seam together so the lovely cinnamon filling doesn’t ooze out all over the place when it bakes. But if it does, who cares.
You’re making cinnamon rolls from scratch! Woot! Your friends and family are going to love you. That is, if you share. You should share…these cinnamon rolls are too good not to.
