make cinnamon rolls

  1. take the dough out of the fridge
  2. roll it out, if necessary, take some additional flour if it sticks
  3. lay the butter plate on the rolled out dough
  4. spread the filling on it
  • wrap the dough around the butter plate like an envelope
  • fold it in thirds
  • roll it out again
  • fold again in thirds
  • roll out again
  • now roll up the dough
  • cut the roll into 2-3 cm thick pieces
  • lay them on a baking tray – watch out, they need some space as they will rise in the oven
  • if you still have some filling left, you can spread it on top of the rolls
  • bake the rolls for 15-20 minutes at 180° C
  • take them out, let them cool down a bit – enjoy 😍!
