Let’s talk Cinnamon Rolls!
2 things I love, homemade cinnamon rolls and a clean kitchen. That being said, I don’t typically make them as they can be somewhat of a mess lol. However, if you cut the process time in half, I instantly start to forget the mess they can make! If you’ve never used your oven to proof or tried 2 packets of yeast with cinnamon rolls, you’re missing out.
By simply popping the dough in the oven to capture that warmer temperature, you cut your proofing time in half. Also, the yeast adds such a softeners to the dough that you don’t see with traditional rolls. Dread the dried out cinnamon rolls? You’re going to love this method!
Let’s talk rolling!
I’ll be honest, I’m not the best at rolling cinnamon rolls. I feel like I can’t get the shape right, the butter can melt making it harder to slice and the list goes on. Full transparency though, it’s not about perfection. I think that’s where many get overwhelmed and pass on making them. I promise you, perfection is overrated. As long as you impart the right flavors aka the filling and ensure the dough is sweet and soft, you’re good! Bonus, my personal favorite slicing hack is to just use a pizza slicer. (true story) The cuts are more uniform, you don’t have to worry about rolling, using a knife etc. It’s just too easy, you have to try it. You’ll thank me later!
