Stay at home cinnamon buns from pizza dough

Sick of being at home yet? Sweden is one of few countries that are so far fairly  non-restricting but as we are a country full of introverts, many choose to limit their movements anyway. Those who can work from home. Our high schools are closed but the other schools are still open. 

I need to share this almost-no-work-at-all cinnamon buns  recipe. It’s so easy, my eight-year old could do it with no problems at all. So can yours. Or you. 

Do they taste like “regular” cinnamon buns? Yep! The texture is not exactly the same, but since they don’t have to rise at all, I can forgive that. 

Stay-at-home Cinnamon Buns
1 roll pre-made pizza dough
2 tbsp melted butter
3 tbsp sugar
2 tsp cinnamon

4-5 tbsp powdered sugar
1-2 tsp milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 175C. (350F). 

Unroll your pizza dough, ideally on a nonstick sheet if it doesn’t already come on one. (The one I buy does) Brush with melted butter. Combine sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle on top of the dough, leaving a little space along the long edges.  Roll it up, starting at the long edge. 

Cut into 2-cm thick pieces. Place in bun or muffin cups, to prevent the filling from going all over your oven. 

Bake, until risen and lightly golden. Mine took about 15 minutes but everyone’s oven is different so keep an eye on them. 

Let the buns cool for a few minutes and mix up the glaze. Add more milk if it’s too thick, or more sugar if it’s too runny. Drizzle over the buns. And eat. 

These do not keep very well, so just go ahead and indulge.
