  • Notes:

    Makes 1 dozen. My family prefers it without the lemon, so I mix milk with the confectioners' sugar for the glaze. I have also added finely chopped apples with the raisins sometimes. Roll up dough firmly. If it's too loose, you'll see air pockets or large gaps when cut. If it's too tight, the bread will crack. A simple way to slice cinnamon rolls is to use a piece of unflavored dental floss. Put frozen bread dough in fridge in the morning, then that evening roll it out and make the rolls; let sit for 30 minutes on counter. Then put in fridge 'til next morning. Let sit out of fridge for 30 minutes before putting in oven to bake. Works out perfectly.
