  • Notes:

    • Make ahead: after cinnamon rolls are assembled in the pan, wrap with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator to rise overnight. In the morning, bring back to room temperature and bake for a quick and easy breakfast.
    • To freeze: assemble the rolls in the pan and cover with plastic wrap and then aluminum foil for up to 1 month. To bake, defrost in the refrigerator overnight then bring to room temperature in the morning and bake according to the recipe instructions.
    • If using all-purpose flour in place of bread flour, you may need to add a couple more tablespoons of flour so the dough is not too sticky.
    • If you don’t have a stand mixer, knead the dough by hand for about 5-10 minutes, or until smooth and elastic.
    • Try topping the rolls with cream cheese icing for a special treat
