On the first snow day of each year I always make my kids yeast- dough Cinnamon Rolls
from scratch. You have to wait for the dough to rise and then there’s all that kneading.
There’s a reason why I only make them once a year, they are a ton of work. Sometimes
we still want the taste of a homemade pastry without all the effort, and these Puff Pastry
Cinnamon Rolls are my go to. By using store bought Puff Pastry they come together in
under twenty minutes. They are sweetened with a touch of pure maple syrup, a little
sugar, and cinnamon. When the warm, golden cinnamon rolls arrive out of the oven,
Maple Cream is smoothed over the tops of the rolls. The Maple Cream seeps into all the
layers of the tender pastry. Each bite is perfectly balanced with the sweetness of the
maple and sugar with the crunch of the buttery pecans. They can be made ahead of
time and frozen. Just bake them, but don’t frost with the Maple Cream. When you’re
ready to serve, pop them into the oven to warm them through and ice with the Maple
Cream. These simple treats are cozy and inviting on a cool Autumn day, enjoy with a
cup of coffee and good company.
