Tuesday Tip of the Day ~ Perfect Cinnamon Rolls

Just how do you get those picture perfect cinnamon rolls?

For a printer friendly recipe for our 
Basic Foods Sweet Roll Dough,
After the dough has risen till double in size,
punch down and roll out into a rectangle.

Spread softened butter, leaving one long edge of the rectangle "naked".
Sprinkle with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar.
2/3 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp. ground cinnamon

Stretch and roll rectangle toward the "naked" edge.
Seal and turn seam side down.

Use a sharp knife to mark the dough "tube" in 16 equal size rolls.
You know...half...then fourths...then eighths...then sixteenths...

With an arm's length of sewing thread...
place thread underneath the tube and then criss-cross to slice into rolls.
Place cut side down in a greased 9 x 13 baking pan
Let rise until double in size.

Bake at 375 degrees for 18 to 20 minutes.

Drizzle with Powdered Sugar Icing.

Smells like Autumn!
Take care,

I haven't had home baked cinnamon rolls since I lived at home. That was a long time ago.
Thanks for sharing!

Love, love, love homemade cinnamon rolls. I need to share this post with my soon to be 14 year old boy - I keep telling him he could make these and your "kids" are proof. I cheat and use my bread maker to make the dough. Any time I make them, Matthew says "we should make these more often". What part of "we" made these??? I feel like the little red hen!! He always chooses these for his birthday instead of a cake. Will try your recipe next - thanks for sharing. ~Ann

I can't remember the last time I made cinnamon rolls! Maybe I'll have to make some this weekend.

I use the sewing thread trick to cut my cinnamon rolls, too. It also works well on cookie dough, especially if you are making pinwheels or checkerboards.

Yummy! Your kids must have so much fun in your class :D

I still can't figure out how to fix that no reply thing. I could have sworn that I saw something about it before, but I can't find it anywhere now???

Natalie, Thanks so much for your link to the "no reply" blogger fix. I think I've fixed it - will you try? Thanks. ~Ann
