Cinnamon Rolls

15 Mar

The other day me and my boyfriend wanted to make pizza so we bought this frozen dough from the grocery store.. being the geniuses we are we didn’t realize it had to defrost for 24 hours so in the end we just made our own dough. What that has to do with this post is that I used the store bought dough yesterday to attempt for the first time making cinnamon rolls! (ps I’ll post the pizza pictures soon)

here’s the store bought dough


Normally when I bake I like to do a trial run and bake a few of whatever I’m making to see how it turns out..

To make the cinnamon rolls all I did was roll out the dough into a rectangle then brush it with butter and sprinkle a mixture of cinnamon and sugar. After that I rolled it and cut it into slivers.


I baked these ones at 350 f for 10 minutes and raised it to 400 f because they weren’t browning. After I took them out of the oven I put a glaze of cream and icing sugar then dipped them in more sugar and cinnamon. (Personally I liked these ones the best because they had a really doughy center)


These were the second round of cinnamon rolls. These ones were much flatter and I think it’s because I had cut them at the same time as the first ones and it sat on the counter and kind of flattened itself out. For the cooking time with these ones I started them at 400 f for 10 minutes so they would brown then I lowered the heat to 350 and baked them for another 8 minutes I also brushed these ones with butter before putting them in the oven.


These were the last ones I made. I baked these the same as the first ones (350 f for 10 minutes then for another 8 at 400 f) but I also brushed them with butter like I did for the second ones. After they were out of the oven I let them cool slightly then poured over the glaze of icing sugar and cream.

All in all they turned out pretty well… I mean they all got eaten so they couldn’t have been awful right?!
