7 Oven-Baked Desserts to Kick the Cold
Winter’s wrath is preparing to wreck havoc across the country yet again, which is the perfect time to bake up a storm. Baking will not only heat up your home, but fill it with that delicious fresh-from-the-oven scent. Keep your kitchens and yourself hot with these seven recipes.
This can be a sticky-sweet way to kick off a lazy snow day, or a brunch-inspired dessert. Either way, you’ll need to give yourself plenty of time to prep — the dough needs to be chilled in the freezer for 8 to 18 hours.
1 cup granulated sugar
4 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided
1 (2-lb.) package frozen bread roll dough
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup chopped pecans
3/4 cup whipping cream
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
Directions: Stir together granulated sugar and 3 teaspoons of cinnamon. Coat each roll in butter; dredge rolls in sugar mixture. Arrange in a lightly greased 10-inch tube pan; sprinkle with pecans. Cover and chill 8 to 18 hours.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Beat whipping cream at high speed with an electric mixer until soft peaks form; stir in brown sugar and remaining 1 tsp. cinnamon. Pour mixture over dough. Place pan on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet. Bake at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for 1 hour or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack 10 minutes; invert onto a serving plate, and drizzle with any remaining glaze in pan.
