|Prep time: 5 minutes||Bake time: 20 minutes|
|Rest time: 5 minutes||Serving: 4|
|Season: Each||Difficulty: medium|
- 1 can of refrigerated crescent rolls
- 1/4 cup of butter, softened
- 1/4 cup of brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon
- 1/2 cup of powdered sugar
- 1 tablespoon of milk
- 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- Set your oven to 375 °F (190 °C) before using it.
- Spread a lightly dusted surface with the unrolled crescent roll dough. Create one considerable rectangle by pinching the seams together.
- Leave a 1/2-inch border around the edges as you spread the softened butter over the dough.
- Combine the cinnamon and brown sugar in a small bowl. Over the buttered dough, distribute the ingredients evenly.
- Beginning with the long side of the rectangle, tightly roll the dough. Seal the seam by pinching the edges together.
- Using a sharp knife or a piece of dental floss, slice the rolled dough into 1-inch pieces.
- Fill a greased 8-inch baking dish with the cinnamon roll slices.
- Bake the rolls for 15–20 minutes, or until they are nicely browned.
- In a small dish, combine the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla essence. Stir this mixture while the cinnamon rolls bake.
- After the cinnamon rolls have baked, take them out of the oven and allow them cool for a few minutes before sprinkling the glaze on top.
- Immediately serve the warm cinnamon rolls!
- To give the mixture of brown sugar and cinnamon even more flavor, stir in some chopped nuts or raisins before sprinkling it over the buttered dough.
- Lacking powdered sugar, you can make your own by pulsing conventional granulated sugar in a blender or food processor into a fine powder.
- You can simply sprinkle powdered sugar on the warm rolls in its place if you’re short on time and forgo creating the glaze.
Can you make them dairy free?
Butter, milk, and cream cheese—all dairy products—are frequently used to make traditional rolls. There are numerous dairy-free substitutes, though, that you can use to create beautiful, fluffy cinnamon rolls that are just as delectable as the ones made with dairy.
You may prepare dairy-free rolls by using dairy-free milk (such as almond milk), dairy-free butter (such as Earth Balance), and, if preferred, a vegan cream cheese alternative (such as Tofutti or Daiya) for the icing. Additionally, many recipes substitute dairy-free components for dairy in the dough, such as applesauce or coconut milk.
When making cinnamon rolls without dairy, it’s important to keep in mind that the dough may differ slightly in texture and consistency from traditional cinnamon rolls.
This is because dairy helps add richness and moisture to baked goods, so you may need to adjust the recipe slightly to make up for the lack of dairy.
Making cinnamon rolls without dairy is a great way to enjoy this classic meal while keeping in mind dietary preferences or restrictions. With just a few simple ingredient swaps, you can easily make fluffy rolls, garnished with cinnamon, and just as delicious as the traditional.
How to freeze?
Freezing cinnamon rolls is a great way to keep them fresh for longer and have a delicious treat on hand whenever you want. Here’s how to freeze cinnamon rolls:
- Let the rolls cool completely before freezing. If you freeze them while they are still warm, condensation may form and make them soggy.
- Wrap each roll individually in plastic wrap or aluminum foil. Make sure they are wrapped tightly to prevent freezer burn.
- Place the individually wrapped cinnamon rolls in a freezer-safe bag or bowl. Label the container with the date and contents.
- Place the container in the freezer. These rolls will last up to three months in the freezer.
- To reheat cinnamon rolls, take them out of the freezer and let them thaw in the fridge overnight. Once thawed, you can heat them in the oven, microwave, or toaster oven.
- To bake them in the oven, preheat the oven to 350 °F (180 °C). Place the cinnamon rolls on a baking sheet and bake for 10–15 minutes, or until warm and golden brown. Enjoy our delicious frozen cinnamon rolls!
