Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best pan to use to cook the cinnamon roll?

I like to use a quarter sheet pan. It’s the exact size needed for this recipe. If you don’t have a quarter sheet pan, a regular half-sized sheet pan will work (essentially a cookie sheet with sides) but you will only use half the sheet.

How do you heat cinnamon roll icing?

Take the top off the cinnamon icing container and place in microwave. Heat for 10 seconds on high. The icing is now ready to easily drizzle on roll.

Does the sweet roll need to be refrigerated?

Basic cinnamon rolls can stay at room temperature for 2 days when wrapped in plastic wrap or up to one week in the refrigerator. When stuffed with yogurt and strawberries, the roll must be covered and stored in the refrigerator. It will keep for about 5 days.
