American Classics: Persian Buns

There are few childhood treats that were as special to me as Persian Buns, a deep-fried, chocolate frosted cinnamon bun, that I've only ever encountered in a small bakery in Camden, Maine. Alas, the Camden Home bakery has long since shut its doors and it's been years since I've had one of these addictive treats, but I think I've cracked the code on how to make them at home. More

Sandwiched: Cinnamon Roll Waffles with Bacon-Apple Frosting

Bread Baking: Cinnamon Apple Sweet Rolls

The dough for these rolls isn't overly sweet. Too much sugar in a dough can result in a poor rise, so I kept the dough just slightly sweeter than usual. It was light, fluffy, and perfect for pulling off little bits to nibble on.

There were a few chewy caramelized bits of sugar around the outer edges of the rolls—a little bonus. More

Bread Baking: Cinnamon Rolls

What's even better than buying cinnamon rolls is making them. Because the smell of cinnamon and sweet yeasty bread baking is almost as good as eating the rolls. (Almost.) These are great fresh from the oven, when they're just a little bit warm. Leftovers are great for French toast or bread pudding. If you have leftovers. More

Sunday Brunch: Cinnamon Rolls

Certain brunch guests will be surprised to learn that cinnamon rolls can be made from scratch in a home kitchen. ("Like, from a can?" a friend of mine once asked when informed that I had made the roll she was being handed.) But there's actually no trick to it. This recipe is more about the soft, sweet bread of the cinnamon roll than its sticky interior. More
