When Two Become One

I’m talking about cinnamon rolls that is. You see, I don’t want to wait hours to make them properly and those canned rolls don’t hit the spot. So, I’ve taken two recipes from my Kitchenaid mixer to make them in 60 minutes.

First, I start with the dough.  Yes, I use the 60 minute roll recipe and because it has sugar in it already, the dough is sweet. I following the rising and baking times to keep things simple.

I then combine the sugar mixture from the sweet roll recipe.

After dividing the dough into 2 batches I roll it out until it is 10 x 12 inches and add half the sugar mixture on, roll-up, then cut into one inch rounds.

I add them to cupcake pans to help them rise and to cook them faster.

Once they have risen for the 15 minutes, I bake them according to the 60 minute roll recipe.

The icing I use is standard vanilla, milk, and powdered sugar.

Then they are eaten by the hungry hordes who have been waiting.

Until next time.
