Sweet Rolls Divine (into cinnamon rolls, or danish
I made the Danish-pull-aparts as a copy of something I saw. The cream cheese topping I used for that, is perfect on top of cinnamon rolls, too!
The Danish pull-aparts are so easy, that it is hard to stop myself from making them too often.
Oooh, the yeasty goodness...mmmm

How to Make Sweet Rolls Divine (into cinnamon rolls, or danish
- 1Using Bread Machine, add all ingredients in order (or order suggested by your machine) and set on Dough Cycle.
If you are one of those magical people that can do bread by hand, feel free to try it, but I can't help you there!
- 2Grease 9" x 13", or slightly larger pan. When dough is finished, take out.
For Cinnamon Rolls, roll into a rectangle on a lightly floured surface, and spread with butter, then sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon, leaving one edge clear to seal together when you roll it up. Roll up, seal edge (bit of water on finger can help) then slice into cinnamon rolls.
For Danish like pull-aparts, simply divide dough into 12-16 pieces.
Place in the greased pan, cover, and let rise 20-30 min. in a warm place.
- 3Mix together cream cheese topping with an electric mixer. Once rolls have risen (either cinnamon or regular), top with cream cheese topping.
For Danish pull apart rolls, plop the cream cheese topping in blobs all about, and then do the same using your favorite jam (raspberry is particularly good.) Sprinkle with sliced almonds.
- 4Bake at 375 degrees F, for 15-20 minutes. I put an empty cookie sheet on the bottom oven rack to catch any drips from above.
Note, if you do cinnamon rolls, they will have the "cream cheese frosting" already baked on (and it is tastier than frosting by most accounts!)
