Cinnamon Rolls

Glazed Sweet Rolls

Cinnamon rolls are the best way to eat dessert for breakfast. These sticky-sweet pastries are full of cinnamon and sugar, covered in icing and best served warm. Though we think classic cinnamon rolls are pretty delicious, there are plenty of ways to change up their flavor—we love to add pecans, pumpkin, and coconut. Here, six of our favorite twists on this tasty treat.

When pastry chef Deborah Racicot makes her fluffy cinnamon rolls at New York City's Gotham Bar and Grill, her customers go insane for them. And so do her colleagues: Racicot gathers up every bit of leftover dough, smears it with cinnamon butter and bakes it. She says there's not one staffer who doesn't dive right in.

The soft and sticky dough for these baking powder-boosted sweet buns--made without butter or oil--gets its richness from pureed cottage cheese. Don't worry that the cut dough spirals look a little lost in the springform pan; as they bake, they rise and puff into a perfect round of pull-apart buns.
