I have tried them from scratch once, and while they tasted really good, I think I could have done a better job. So they remain on my bucket list. When I came across this recipe by Dessert for Two, I was excited. I knew these would allow me to make cinnamon rolls the morning I want to eat them. So these can’t come off the list because yeast was not involved. I am going to have to put aside a whole day to tackle that. I was able to make and bake these in about a half an hour!
Roll out the super soft dough, brush with melted butter, and spread the cinnamon-sugar mixture on top.
Roll the dough tight, seal the seams, and cut into four pieces. I probably could have done a better job rolling up the dough. I did have my little helper hanging over the dough so I was a little distracted.
And do you notice that I am making only four? Besides no yeast, that is another great thing about this recipe from Dessert for Two! I am not tempted to eat 3 or 4 because I had to share. Of course when Matt saw how many I made, he asked where everyone else’s were.
These baked up really nice. But look naked. What is a cinnamon roll without frosting?!
These cinnamon rolls taste great. The cream cheese icing melted slightly because I spread it on when they came right out of the oven. Perfect. Like I mentioned before, the dough is soft, not heavy at all. And the cinnamon-sugar mixture turned hot and gooey – the best!
If you want to make this breakfast treat and not have to make them from a can, try this recipe! You won’t be sorry! 🙂
