How To Make cinnamon roll - danish style

  • 1
    Combine the flour and salt in a bowl and make a well in the center. Combine the sugar, yeast, egg and milk. Use fingers or a knife to mix until dough comes together. Place dough on a lightly-floured surface and knead until smooth. Oil a large bowl and place dough in bowl -turning to coat. Cover with cling wrap and set aside in a warm place for approx. 1 hour or until dough doubles in size.

    Punch down dough and place the dough onto a lightly floured surface. Gently knead until smooth. Roll out your dough to a rectangle shape about 1/4 inch thick. Top with butter leaving a 1/2 inch border. Gently press butter into the dough and lightly sprinkle with extra flour. Start with the short end farthest away from you and fold 1/3 over the center of the dough. Now fold the short side closest to you over the top. Turn the dough 90 degrees and gently press the edges together to seal. Using a rolling pin - roll the dough into a rectangle about 1/4 inch thick. Repeat the folding and rolling process 6 times. Then cover the dough with cling wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes to allow the dough to rest.
