If you have never tried Swedish Buns, you have been missing out! These tasty little treats go great with your morning coffee or really any time of day and it is impossible to only eat 1, especially right after they come out of the oven! This is a great treat to prepare up on the weekend, preferably a nice lazy Sunday morning. Maybe enjoy a nice tea while the dough rises and the kids lounge about. Then you are set to go for the week and all stocked up! One final little secret... Cardamom is not only a great spice to use because of it's health benefits, but it is also a powerful aphrodisiac for both men and women!!!
Hope you enjoy them as much as I do! If you make these, I would love for you to share your pictures and thoughts with us on Cape Cod Mommies!!! There are a lot of pictures below. The first section explains how to make the dough followed by some pictures and then the final section explains the filling and final preparations! Enjoy!
After punching down dough following its first rise, remove from bowl and knead lightly on floured counter until smooth and shiny.
Divide dough into two halves. Roll each half of dough into a 12” by 18” rectangle. Brush each rectangle well with melted butter.
Combine 2/3 cup sugar and 2 Tbsp. cinnamon; sprinkle evenly over the 2 rectangles. Roll each rectangle crosswise, like a jelly roll, to form an 18”-long cylinder.
Using a sharp or serrated knife, cut each cylinder into 20 equal slices.
Place each slice into a paper cupcake wrapper and place on baking sheet. Cover with towel and allow to double in size, about 45 minutes.
Preheat oven to 425º. Brush risen cinnamon rolls with egg wash and sprinkle with pearl sugar and / or almonds. Place in the middle of a preheated oven and bake for 7 minutes, or until done. Yield: 40 cinnamon rolls.
