No matter how many new things I learn to conquer in baking, I simply cannot make yeast rise. I don't know what it is! I always buy it brand new before I use it so I know it's not old, and I always use a thermometer to make sure it is at the exact right temperature that is called for in the recipe. I'm really not sure what the problem is. But even if you're a yeast killer like me, this recipe will make a perfectly good (actually better than perfect good, they're perfectly amazingly warm ooey gooey delicious good) cinnamon bun-ish treat. And it's quick! These are so simple and QUICK to throw together. And these are just as good, if not better, than traditional cinnamon buns. If you're in the mood for cinnamon buns but not in the mood to play with temperamental yeast, wait until it rises, flatten the dough and then roll it up into a log, etc etc - then this is the right recipe for you.
If you want to make this recipe even easier, if that is at all possible, use our new 8x8 inch square parchment with our unique lift tabs, then check out this video:
