I’m enamoured with cinnamon scrolls. They are so delicious. And so naughty! But if you only eat them once per year: I can’t imagine a better time for it than Christmas. Using the red cranberries and green raw pistachios with the flavours of cinnamon and nutmeg is just one way these will make you glad it’s Christmas time! These would be great made Christmas Eve so they are ready for breakfast.
So..I’ve had a few disastrous attempts at cinnamon scrolls before, but this time they are a winner. I based my sweet dough on this recipe: basic sweet roll dough.
Now these take a fair bit of work….but trust me they are worth it!
Make sure you note: the dough needs to rest for a minimum of four hours, or overnight in the fridge so as to develop its gluten. You will get a workout when you roll this out, but a floured rolling pin and floured surface will help!
