CWP Episode 4 - The Bertinet Method (Sweet Dough)



Cinnamon Rolls
Sweet Dough
  • 18oz. all purpose flour
  • 4 Tbs unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 package active dry yeast (2 1/4 tsp)
  • 3 Tbs sugar
  • 1 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
Filling
  • 4 Tbs unsalted butter, softened
  • Ground cinnamon, enough to cover the rolled out dough
  • Brown sugar, enough to cover the rolled out dough
Icing
  • 3 Tbs unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- For the dough, rub butter and flour together with your hands until combined and somewhat crumbly in texture.
- Add yeast, sugar and salt and combine.
- Add the eggs and milk and stir to combine into a sticky dough.
- Remove dough from the bowl and onto a clean work surface.
- Scoop the dough up with both hands from either side.  Lift the dough, flip hands over and slap dough onto the work surface.  Slowly stretch the dough toward you and then fold back onto itself.
- Repeat this step for approximately 7 - 10 minutes, until the dough comes clean off the board and looks very smooth.
- Sprinkle just a little flour on the board and form the dough into a ball.
- Place in a floured bowl, cover with a towel or plastic wrap and let rest in a warm place (room temp) for 2 hours.
- After two hours, gently removed the dough onto a floured surface and roll out to a large rectangle.  The dough should be about 1/4" to 3/8" thick all over.
- For the filling, spread the butter all over the surface of the dough.  Sprinkle with cinnamon and brown sugar.
- Starting with the edge closest to you, roll the dough up into a log and pinch the seam to close it.
- Take some unflavored dental floss and slide it underneath the dough.  Pull up on both sides of the floss and cross them, cutting the dough with the floss.  Cut the roll into 12 equal sections.
- Place the rolls into a buttered baking dish, equally spaced.
- Cover with a towel or plastic wrap and let rise for another 30 - 40 minutes.
- Preheat your oven to 360 F.  Yes, I do mean 360.
- While the oven in heating and dough is rising again, combine the icing ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine.  Cover with plastic wrap and set aside.
- Once dough has risen again, bake in a 360 F oven for 20 - 22 minutes.
- Remove from oven and place a dollop of icing on each of the rolls while they are still hot.
- Serve immediately.  Enjoy!

Great job Paul,

Someone posted a link to the youtube video on thefreshloaf.com but I didn't see a link to the blog there. It might be helpful to some people.

Looking forward to more.

Wayne,

Can you give me the fresh loaf link so I can find that post and give people the blog link?

How did you find the blog?

Thanks for that update and the nice comment!

Hi Paul,

Sorry for the delay, didn't get notified (must not have checked the box).

I see you found the fresh loaf post linking to your video and provided the links.

I found the blog originally with google:
"cooking with paul" cinnamon rolls. I guess I didn't notice the link to the blog on youtube.

By the way rolls are great. I added pecan pieces which I really liked. I even froze some and as long as you don't overdo the microwave, they come out hot and soft and delicious.

thanks again -- wayne

Showing this video today - some of the comments I've heard from the students regarding your intro - "Wow, how precious", "cool" regarding video - "He looks so legit" "those looks sooo good" Can he PLEASE come to the school" and that is only 2 classes so far - You need to make a guest appears in my class!

Carol,

I would love to come do something for one of your classes! I really would. The only thing I think we would need to work out would be the timing of it. I may need to take a few hours off of work. Let me know what you're thinking about when would be a good time and what dish you'd like to talk about/make.
