Take 'n Bake Cinnamon Rolls

Note: Baking instructions only pertain to take 'n bake (unbaked) cinnamon rolls. For previously baked rolls, skip to #5.

Cinnamon rolls can be stored in the refrigerator if they will be baked within 36 hours from pickup. Otherwise, rolls can remain frozen for a few months, or longer if double wrapped in aluminum foil for protection. If frozen, move to refrigerator to defrost overnight before baking, then follow directions below. Frosting should be frozen or refrigerated until just before you are ready to frost and eat the baked rolls.

  1. Let rolls rise in a warm area of the kitchen before baking, ideally 30-60 minutes. This helps the yeast reactivate and gives a better rise. Rolls can be moved directly from the refrigerator to the oven, but may not rise as well. Do not move rolls directly from freezer to oven.
  2. Preheat oven to 350.
  3. Remove lid and bake on center rack 27-30 min, until lightly browned but still soft. Rolls baked for a shorter time will be gooier, but may sink in the middle.
  4. Remove from oven and let cool on a rack before frosting.
  5. Reheat cooled rolls by removing from pan and microwaving 60 secs for that fresh, gooey texture again!
