Cinnamon Rolls made in a Muffin Tin

Yum!

Cinnamon Rolls can make a grown man cry! With that said make these for the favorite man in your life.  You’ll be queen for the day or maybe for the week.  This can be a no-brainer if you can make basic biscuit dough.  If you’ve never made biscuits before just cut yourself a little slack and practice, practice, practice!

My students love this lab!  I’m not such a fan.  I’m more of a savory person, but really can go for  one of these with a good cup of coffee.    So get in the kitchen and whip some of these mouth-watering cinnamon rolls up for someone special.

Last spring GI Joe and I were in Halifax on a very cold, blustery day and walked into a very busy coffee shop Cabin Coffee to be exact.  Guess what we found?  Cinnamon rolls going like hot cake made with biscuit dough not the usual yeast dough.     They were cooked in a huge muffin pan and as soon as they came out of the oven they were flying out the door.  I’ve  never seen anything like it.  So here you go –   my Cinnamon Rolls in a Muffin Tin.  Yes,  this is something else that you can enjoy with your family  in this coming week of frigid temperatures.

Here’s what we made in class on Friday our first lab of the year. The first time in the kitchen always makes for some interesting writing here. Just imagine 33 teens in a room with six kitchens all trying to get Danish in the oven, tables set, and kitchens cleaned in a mere 45 minutes. It is organized chaos!!! One group added their milk a day early and two groups got the Danish confused with the icing and added a heaping cup of powdered sugar to the dry ingredients. Another student used a pastry blender as a mixing tool. I haven’t figured that one out yet. After four hours and 124 students later I left feeling exhausted both mentally and physically. It was a great lab with only three wrong turns out of twenty-four that hit the nail on the head.

Here’s what I did to change it up and I loved the results and so did my family. Looking for something sweet, tart and very simple here it is Lemon Cheese Danish with Lemon icing.
