I have a real weakness for homemade cinnamon rolls! It takes all my willpower not to eat the whole pan full. The smell of warm brioche, with butter, cinnamon and brown sugar is so intoxicating. Since a snow day was in the forecast I went out and got my supplies ready for a day of baking. There’s something special about baking on a cold day while looking out the window at falling snow. When the time finally came to pop these rolls in the oven I was rewarded with such a wonderful aroma. I couldn’t wait to drizzle the glaze over top and taste one. They are so light and buttery with the sweetness of cinnamon and sugar. As far as pastries go, these might be my favorite!

It’s apple season and I for one can’t think of anything more delectable than an apple cinnamon roll with a bit of caramel sauce and caramel glaze drizzled over top. And for a little crunch add a few sweet cinnamon pecans to the mix. What a way to welcome friends and family around the holidays with the aroma of cinnamon and apples fresh from the oven. I’m making a batch of sweet rolls to put in the freezer for the holidays. They can easily be thawed and reheated in the oven for a delicious breakfast or brunch. And if by chance there are any left, break off a piece to dunk in your morning coffee, it’s a real treat!

I’ve found several recipes that include brioche bread so I decided to try out the artisan style brioche dough from “Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day”. It is really easy to make and once you have the dough you can make it into anything you want. I made the sweet dough but there is also a savory variation. I had in mind french toast and bread pudding so I made loaves that I can slice or cut into pieces to fit my recipes but you can also make cinnamon rolls or individual rolls; really anything is possible. We toasted a couple slices and slathered some pumpkin butter on top. Umm, really good!
