    Once the cinnamon rolls are ready to bake can they be re-frozen for a later date?

      Thank you for your question! Once the rolls are thawed and risen they cannot be refrozen. You could freeze the baked Cinnamon Rolls and re-warm them. I would just put them in a warm oven for about 5 minutes. Hope this helps you!

      Thank you for your questions. We do not suggest leaving any of our products out overnight. You can put them in your baking pan in the refrigerator overnight and then get them out and finish letting them raise approximately 1 hour before you need them. You need to be sure to bake them as soon as they have risen to double in size. Leaving them out will just let them continue to raise and they just fill with air and will collapse in the oven. Also, check the “best by” date and bake well before that date.
      Please call our Customer Satisfaction Department at 1-800-876-7333 and we would be happy to send you replacement coupon for those.

    ASked for Tree nut free items. Several products came up including cinnamon rolls. Noticed almond extract is used. How can they be tree nut free?

    I put them in the oven with a warm bowl of water like I’ve done in the past with cinnamon rolls but these did not do well with that method they ended up very dry and thin. ☹

      I was also thinking that you have to be careful to watch them while you are proofing them. Be sure to bake the rolls when they have doubled in size. It sounds like they may have over-risen. It’s important to bake them at the right time so they don’t just fill with air and collapse. Just another thought with my previous one.

    * to be more clear * I put them in oven with warm water to rise like homemade ones of my own I’ve made in the past.

      That really should work just fine. Just wondering what the “best by” date was on your package. Or if there was ice in the package or if the rolls were stuck together? If either of those things were a problem, it might have affected the way they performed.

        Best by date is 7/3/20. I do not see Any ice crystals, it was brand new from walmart. I’m trying again tonight without the bowl of water. Maybe they over proofed? If that’s the right word?? Too much moisture or warmth cause then to rise to much and/or too fast?? Thank you!!

    COULD I thaw the dough in the fridge during the day, roll the cinnamon rolls that evening, and then place them in fridge overnight? then take them out to finish doubling in size the following morning?

    I recently bought the cinnamon rolls for Christmas morning. I let them thaw overnight in the refrigerator and then took them out and let them rise about 1 hour and 45 mins. They baked just fine but the cinnamon rolls had very little flavor. Almost like there was no cinnamon in the cinnamon rolls. they were newly bought and not past the “best by date”

    I noticed on your cinnamon roll recipe it says on a lightly sprayed counter roll dough into a 12 by 18 inch rectangle I’m used to roll in it on flower which way should I do it. I got that my name

    At one time you had a recipe for cinnamon rolls that call for butter scotch pudding. The pudd was used with butter and cinnamon mixed and spred in a baking pan and rolls placed on top of mixture and let rise and then baked. I just dont have the ExExact recipe. Do you have it. They were So good

      We have so many recipes that we’ve developed over many years. And many of these recipes are on our website so you might want to check that out. I have a huge binder with a lot of recipes from over the years and I would be happy to look through these. However, I am working from home right now and only go into the office once a week. I will look next week and keep your email address and let you know what I find.
      Just thinking, there are two that come to mind. Sticky Buns and Butterscotch Bubble Loaf are two that you can find on our website. So check those out and I will get back with you. Thanks for understanding!

    My rolls have thawed. But do I let them rise first before rolling out, making the cinnamon rolls and rise again?

      Thanks for your question! You do not need to let the dough rise before you roll it out to make the Cinnamon Rolls. Assemble the rolls and then let them rise until they double in size. Then it’s time to bake! Enjoy!
