How to Shape Cinnamon Rolls


width="305"Did you know that its easy to make sweet rolls? Whether its cinnamon rolls, sticky buns, orange rolls, or a specialty flavor, its not difficult to shape them. The sweet roll dough can be made in an automatic bread machine to save time, or, if theres lots of time to spare, it can be made the traditional way either by hand or in a bread mixer. What follows are step-by-step pictures and directions to shape homemade cinnamon rolls; other kinds of sweet rolls can be made by varying the ingredients. There will never be a need to purchase bakery rolls again.


First youll need a batch of Basic Sweet Roll Dough.
  1. Divide the dough in half. On a floured surface, preferably a pastry cloth, roll the dough to a rectangle approximately 12 x 18. Its easier if the rolling pin has a stockinet cover; a little flour can be rubbed onto the cover to eliminate sticking.

  3. Brush the surface of the rectangle with melted butter.

  4. Sprinkle the surface with sugar (1/3-1/2 cup)

  5. Sprinkle with cinnamon; although some commercial bakers use a lot, its a good idea to use a moderate amount, a teaspoon or two, so the finished rolls arent overpowered with cinnamon (the idea here is to make pleasantly-cinnamon flavored rolls - not to make an entire airport smell like cinnamon).




  6. If desired, sprinkle a few raisins over the surface.

  8. Beginning on the long end, roll up tightly; pinch the seam.

  10. Cut the rolls into 24 even pieces (cut the dough in half then each half in half then each into six). If bigger rolls are desired, the dough can be cut into 16 pieces, or even 12 for giant rolls.

  11. Place the rolls evenly spaced on a parchment-lined or greased baking sheet.

  13. Repeat with the second half of the dough, cover, and let rise until doubled in bulk.

  14. Bake the rolls in a 350 oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown.

  15. Frost or glaze as desired.
