How you doin’? This is one serious blog! If you are as addicted to great Cinnamon Rolls as I am the following will allow you to use store-bought Poppin’ Fresh pressure packed cans of cinnamon rolls and make some really good breakfast goodies. No recipe required. No need to proof overnight. No messy bowls to clean up—just let the little Pillsbury guy do all the work.
Now that many of us are going back to work time doesn't allow for those slow, idyllic mornings that begin with homemade cinnamon rolls and leisurely cups of joe. Sometimes you wish there were shortcuts to give you that fresh-baked, county fair flavor. Luckily there are several ways you can tweak that can of store-bought cinnamon roll dough to make them taste like you made them from scratch in your very own kitchen.
1. Add Heavy Cream
Just pour heavy cream in a baking dish to cover the bottom of the pan. Arrange the premade cinnamon rolls in the pan, cover with foil and bake according to package directions. The cream adds moisture to the rolls for extra tender and pillowy pastries.
2. Increase the Cinnamon-Sugar Filling
Don't stop by just adding cream into the pan—most versions also include the addition of drizzle of a butter, brown sugar and cinnamon mixture over top the buns before baking. Just melt 4 tablespoons butter and stir in 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/2 tablespoon ground cinnamon. Drizzle the mixture over the rolls, cover with foil and bake according to package directions.
3. Make Your Own Icing
Toss the pre-made stuff that comes in the can and instead mix together 2 tablespoons softened butter with 2 tablespoons cream cheese, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, a pinch of salt and 1 cup powdered sugar. Add milk, 1 tablespoon at a time to thin the icing to your desired consistency. Slather over warm rolls as they come out of the oven and enjoy for that fresh Cinnabon flavor with no effort.
4. Layer On Some Caramel
Spread a layer of caramel sauce in the bottom of your baking pan and sprinkle a cup of chopped pecans atop. Place the rolls on top of the caramel/pecan mixture and bake according to package directions. Flip the cinnamon rolls upside down when they are finished baking for gooey caramel sauce-pecan topped buns.
5. Add a Fruit Filling
Canned cinnamon rolls can be unrolled pretty easily. Once you have a flat strip of dough, cover it with some fresh fruit like berries or sliced peaches or spoon on your favorite pie filling. Roll the dough back up in that classic cinnamon roll shape, place in a baking dish and bake according to package instructions.
6. Brûlée the Tops
Before baking, set one oven rack to the top position. With five minutes left of cooking, remove the rolls from the oven and dust the tops with sugar. Return rolls to the top rack in the oven and set it to broil. Broil just until the sugar is golden and crisp.
You can use any one of these hacks to make better Cinnamon Rolls or combine 2 or 3 hacks to create the best ever, easy rolls.
