This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie/Baking with Julia is hosted by Lynn of Eat Drink Man Woman Dogs Cat and Nicole of Cookies on Friday…the complete recipe can be found on either of their blogs. My family is not big on nuts (who am I kidding, this is another food category they boycott), but they are huge fans of cinnamon rolls. So I felt compelled to tweak these by eliminating the nuts so I wouldn’t have to eat the dozen plus two all by myself. I also doubled the cinnamon sugar filling to compensate for my omission.
These buns were made from a brioche dough, which involved the laminating process of incorporating extra butter into an already butter laden dough. This made for extra flaky buns…more like a croissants than your typical yeast roll. Can you see all the extra layers in these extraordinary treats? 5 sticks of butter in 14 rolls…you do the math. They were insanely delicious.
