How to Form and Bake Cinnamon Rolls
Nothing's better than waking up to the scent of fresh-baked cinnamon rolls.These simple roll-forming techniques work for anything from apple and walnut rolls to classic  pecan sticky buns.
Prepare the yeast dough. Once the dough has risen once, turn it out onto a lightly flouredsurface. Flatten the dough with the palms of your hands and gently stretch and/or roll it into arectangle.
Use a rolling pin to roll the dough out into a larger rectangle, approximately 12 inches wide by20 inches long. The dough might be sticky, so flour the work surface and the rolling pin, checking tobe sure the dough isn't stuck to the work surface and adding more flour as necessary.
Spread the softened butter over the surface of the dough, leaving a 1-inch strip along the longedge of the rectangle furthest away from you completely dry. (Other recipes call for egg washinstead of butter; if you're using egg wash, brush the entire surface.)
Generously sprinkle cinnamon-sugar over the butter, spreading the mixture evenly across thewhole sheet of dough. Other spices, such as nutmeg and cardamom, also work well. Adding a pinchof ground cloves to the cinnamon-sugar mixture enhances the cinnamon flavor. Leave the 1-inchborder free of sugar.
Add any other fillings desired--raisins, nuts, shredded coconut, orange zest--taking care todistribute them evenly.
Start at the left-hand corner of the edge closest to you. Working from left to right, tug the lip of the dough up and over the filling, keeping it tight. Roll up the dough, tightening the log as you go.
When you reach the far edge of the dough, moisten the bare edge with egg wash or water andpinch to seal the seam.
Use a serrated knife, pastry cutter, or length of unwaxed dental floss to cut the dough intoeven-sized pieces. You might want to discard the very ends of the roll since they often contain littlefilling.
Place the cut rolls on a greased or parchment-lined pan or cookie sheet. (For sticky buns,prepare the pan with the cinnamon smear and chopped pecans before arranging the rolls.) For pull-apart rolls, use a baking pan and arrange the rolls about an inch apart. To make individual rolls,space them two to three inches apart on a cookie sheet. Cover the rolls with a damp cloth and letthem rise until they nearly double in size, about 45 minutes to an hour. The rolls can also becovered with plastic wrap and placed in the refrigerator. The next morning, let the rolls rise at roomtemperature until doubled, then bake as directed. (The dough can also be frozen for two weeks toone month. Thaw, still wrapped, at room temperature. Proof and bake as directed.)
When the rolls have doubled in size, bake them in the preheated 375 degrees F (190 degreesC) oven. Cinnamon rolls are generally baked at a lower temperature than other breads--if the rollsare close together, the tops will begin to brown before the edges and centers are done. If the rollsbegin browning too soon, cover pan with foil.
