There’s nothing like the smell of freshly baked cinnamon rolls. But, what happens when you can’t eat them all yourself? There’s a bit of an art to cinnamon roll storage. If done improperly, they’ll dry out. Follow the below tips on how to store cinnamon rolls, and you’ll be sure to have a moist treat for weeks to come!
At Baked Stage:
After you’ve baked your cinnamon rolls, you can keep them at room temperature for a few days. Place the finished cinnamon rolls on a plate and cover with tin foil. Set aside until you’re ready to chow down. For the quickest reheat, spread butter over each cinnamon roll and microwave for 1 minute on high. Finished cinnamon rolls should keep covered at room temperature for 2-3 days.
At Dough Stage:
The best way to keep your excess cinnamon rolls moist is to freeze them at the dough stage. Wrap each individual cinnamon roll, and then place them in an airtight container. When you’re ready to bake your cinnamon rolls, take them out of the freezer. Let them thaw in the fridge for 6 hours. Bake according to the original directions. You can keep the frozen dough for up to 3 months.
If you follow these tips, we guarantee your cinnamon rolls will stay scrumptious.
