Weekend Project #2: Cinnamon Rolls

The cooler weather must have gotten to me this weekend. I started craving warm comfort foods. I used the recipe for Clone of a Cinnabon from www.allrecipes.com, with a few adjustments. I don't have a bread machine, so I used one package of active yeast and kneaded by hand. I also think that you should use only about 3/4 of the filling, but that's just me. They were so delicious! If you like Cinnabon style rolls, you'll love these. Again, here was another chance to use my deep dish stone baker. It worked beautifully.

Uncooked rolls:
Baked rolls, before icing. (They looked better before icing...after they are just a kind of blob sort of thing.)

I just gained back the 40 pounds I just lost by looking and lusting after those rolls. OMG.

cantellya, thank you!

vickie, you had me laughing out loud! What a great compliment. And they are as tasty as they look!

yummy! I've always wanted to make cinnamon rolls, but always thought it would be too hard. Was it?

Dawn said...

No, it wasn't that hard...it takes a little bit of time, because you have to wait for the dough to rise and after you roll it out and cut them, you have to wait for them to proof again. But outside of needing a little bit of time, they are very easy!

P.S. I hope you don't mind I copied the recipe for the pumpkin cheesecake too. Cannot WAIT to try! I'm thinking of giving gifts of food this Christmas. More fun for me!

Yikes! I can't read blogs anymore at work! You just made me go from satiated after lunch to STARVING by 3:00! Those look so yummy...that darn deep dish baker is coming out of the closet...now you've given me two excuses to use it. BTW - I got lucky with this rental kitchen, but believe me I've had kitchens that were so awful I stopped cooking anything that I couldn't stick in the microwave! I know...the shame!
