Challah Dough Cinnamon Rolls....

As I said in my previous post the ABin 5 challah dough makes for some really easy cinnamon rolls. I just use about a one pound piece. Roll it out into a rectangle about 1/8 inch thick. I schmear the dough with some softened butter, maybe 4 Tablespoons or so. Sprinkle with some brown sugar, about 1/4 cup ...this does not have to be exact. And then sprinkle about a tablespoon of good cinnamon over top. Roll up the dough, pinch to seal and cut into 8 pieces.
Place them in a buttered round 9 inch baking pan. I let them rise for about an hour until they had just about doubled and then baked in a pre-heated 350* oven for about 30 minutes.
You can of course use this dough and whatever filling you like...use your favorite. I make a very simple confectioner's sugar glaze and drizzle over top. About a cup of confectioners sugar, a teaspoon of vanilla, and enough milk or water to make a nice glaze. I usually remove the rolls from the pan before glazing. But this time I made them the evening before and chose to keep them in the pan. They were easily removed the next morning.
It makes it easy to have the dough all ready...waiting in the fridge. You can whip these up in the morning for a special treat.
