How was everyone's Valentine's Day? My boy friend and I spent ours eating and drinking wine until we fell asleep. I wouldn't have wanted it any other way.
We both woke up with morning a little hung over and hungry, so I whipped up a batch of cinnamon rolls. They turned out awesome, so I'm sharing the recipe for you all.
SALTED CARAMEL CINNAMON ROLLS
1 can of crescent roll dough
1 can of dulche de leche
1 tbs. melted butter
Preheat oven to 375.
Roll out the crescent dough into one giant sheet. Do not separate the triangles.
Add a thin (or thick, your call) layer of dulche de leche, and then sprinkle with cinnamon.
Roll it up and cut it into one inch segments. If you have a hard time cutting the dough, you can wrap it in wax paper and freeze it for a while until the dough firms up. But if you're lazy like me, you can just cut it and if the dough smushes a bit, just reshape it in your hands.
Place the pieces on an un-greased baking pan and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the pastry has browned.
Once out of the oven, brush the tops with the melted butter and sprinkle with more cinnamon and salt to taste.
There's not a lot of effort involved in these, but they turned out so good. They'd also be really good if you sprinkled chopped pecans on it before rolling it up -- make some kind of caramel nut roll. Yum.
