My Mom makes THE most incredible cinnamon buns.
I have the dough recipe, and it rocks.
But on the days that I don't have the...
then my Mom taught me to use a simple simple solution...pre-made pizza dough!
Now, making cinnamon buns may be all too obvious for some, but I'm someone who thrives on a full photo step by step (even for the simple things) so I hope they benefit some.
All you need for this is recipe is:
approx. 1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
Pre-Made Pizza Dough (found typically frozen in your bakers section for a couple bucks)
Drizzle & coat your pan in melted butter and do a light coat of cinnamon & sugar. Set aside. Flour your surface and roll out your dough into a large rectangle about 1/4" thick. Brush on melted butter onto your rolled out pizza dough. Sprinkle cinnamon & sugar (doesn't need to be a specific amount, just enough to coat). Roll up and slice 1" pieces. Place in pan. Bake at 425' for 15 minutes (or until risen & lightly browned).
This will literally take you less than 10 minutes to prep - and with it's homemade appearance, it's a step above the Pillsbury option ;)
Enjoy Cinnamon Lovers :)
