Cinnamon Beet Rolls

These Cinnamon Beet Rolls are a delicious take on the traditional Scandavian cinnamon roll that we have all grown to love. Who can resist the smell of these buns in a warm kitchen on a cold day? In this recipe I combine cinnamon, yeasty dough and a brown sugar filling with beets to create a pink version of the scandi classic!

 I start by making the dough from beets, egg, buttermilk, sugar, butter, zest, salt and flour. While the dough is rising, I make the filling from muscovado sugar, cinnamon, and ginger. To assemble these rolls, I spread butter on rolled out rectangles of dough and sprinkle the filling on top. Roll ‘em up and bake ‘em for the sweetest smelling kitchen between here and Copenhagen.

Steps to make Cinnamon Beet Rolls

Divide the dough into two portions. Roll out each portion into a rectangle about 13 x 20 inches on a floured surface.

8

Add the filling

Spread half of the butter on each rectangle and sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar filling mixture. Leave a ½ inch border around the edges.

Roll the dough lengthwise into tight rolls. Pinch the edges shut, and place the rolls seam side down. Cut each log into 12 pieces, alternating cuts on the diagonal. Press down firmly on top with your index finger to shape.
