Cinnamon bun dough

Hi there, I am new to the forums and also new to bread baking.  I have decided that I can not tolerate buy chemical bread for my kids anymore.  Anyway, I have had alot of success making regular loafs of bread using either my bosch machine or my kitchenaid., However, twice I have tried to make cinnamon buns and everytime I role out the dough the dang stuff just keeps shrinking back in on me!! Any Ideas what I could be doing wrong or what I could be doing different.  Thanks a heap

Hi --


I'm not sure what recipe you're using, but I heartily recommend this one.


It's Alton Brown's Overnight Cinnamon Rolls and they're out-of-this-world.


Whatever recipe you use, though, you want to make sure you let your dough rest before trying to roll it out. That should loosen up the gluten enough to make it workable.


Happy baking!

If your dough is pulling back when you roll it, allow it to rest for about 5-10 minutes and then try again.

Hi ---


My wife and I have found a cinnamon roll recipe that we dearly love and make all too regularly.  It is a clone of Cinnabons, and even better than the originals.  The recipe can be found at http://www.gordonfamily.com/Recipes/cinnabon.htm.  The only changes that I have made are to use real butter only, rather than the margarine called for in the recipe, double the cream cheese in the icing, and eliminate the lemon flavoring in the icing.  The dough itself is amazing, and very easy to work with.


15 of those luscious beauties are now sitting on the kitchen counter calling to me.  Gotta go!!

then delete the period at the end. The ".htm." is messing things up. If you click, wait for you to tell you there's no such page and then delete the period at the end of the URL in the address bar it works fine.

He just accidentally linked the period of his sentence into the url

Thanks for the fixing the link for me. I want to give these a try tomorrow, will be working in my kitchen for most of the day (lasagna, pizza dough) so will add these to the list.

Sorry - I didn't realize that the period ending the sentence got attached to the link.  This one works.

a few weeks ago. My husband, who normally takes my baked goods to the office, refused to share with his friends.
