What are Cinnamon Rolls?

​​Cinnamon rolls are made of an enriched dough, flattened with a rolling pin with a cinnamon butter filling spread over it. This sheet of dough is then rolled and sliced into separate buns and then baked in the oven. It's a yeast bread dough so it turns out light and fluffy. The Americans started the tradition of topping cinnamon rolls with a frosting, which could be icing sugar based or a cream cheese frosting. They are a dessert item for few, while some enjoy it as their morning breakfast with some coffee.

    Expert Tips

    1) Knead the dough thoroughly to avoid uneven rising.

    2) Ensure the butter for the cinnamon filling is soft and pliable.

    3) While spreading the filling be careful not to pierce the rolled out dough.

    4) You'll achieve perfectly smooth slices only if you use a serrated knife to cut them.
