Rustic Cinnamon Rolls

I love how the deliciously sweet and spicy aroma of cinnamon floats through my home when I am making cinnamon rolls. It is enticing and comforting. These warm, gooey cinnamon rolls are rich in Christmas morning nostalgia. This recipe includes a shortcut to making cinnamon rolls, without the trouble of making the dough from scratch, so you spend less time making and more time enjoying.
 

Prep Time - 20 Minutes

Cook Time - 25 Minutes

Serves 4

Ingredients
  • 1 loaf of frozen bread dough
     

  • ¾ cup dark brown sugar, packed
     

  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
     

  • ⅓ cup finely chopped walnuts
     

  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
     

  • 4 ½ tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
     

  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream

Directions

Omnipan – Small and Medium

  1. Thaw the frozen dough in the refrigerator overnight. 2 hours before you are ready to make the rolls, remove the dough from the refrigerator and place it in a bowl coated with ½ tablespoon of butter. Cover the bowl with a damp kitchen towel.
     

  2. Spread 1 tablespoon of butter inside the medium Omnipan and set aside. In the small Omnipan, combine the brown sugar, ground cinnamon, and chopped walnuts.
     

  3. Dust your work surface and rolling pin with 3 tablespoons of flour. Turn out the dough onto the work surface and roll it into a 12-inch X 6-inch rectangle.
     

  4. Slather 3 tablespoons of softened butter over the rolled dough. Sprinkle the cinnamon mixture generously all over the buttered surface.
     

  5. Start rolling the dough at the long end to form an elongated log. Cut the log into 8 equal pieces. Place the rolls into the medium Omnipan so that you can see the spiral on the top. Cover it lightly with plastic wrap and set aside for 1 hour for the rolls to expand.
     

  6. Preheat the oven to 350 °F or 177 °C.
     

  7. Remove the plastic wrap covering the rolls. Drizzle the heavy cream on top of the rolls. Place the medium Omnipan without the lid in the preheated oven. Bake the rolls for 25 minutes, or until they turn light brown. Serve warm.

Notes
  • You can frost the cinnamon rolls with cream cheese frosting. Here is an easy recipe for cream cheese frosting. Whisk together 4 oz cream cheese, ¼ cup unsalted butter (softened), 1 ½ cups powdered sugar, ½ teaspoon vanilla extract, and 1 teaspoon milk until smooth. Frost the rolls after they have cooled for 15 minutes.
     

  • It is important to have the dough at room temperature to be able to roll the dough. Walnuts can be omitted or substituted with any other nuts of your choice.
