This recipe also comes from Judith Fertig's 200 Fast & Easy Artisan breads. I am posting it by request. Use half of the Easy Artisan Gluten-Free Dough, Easy Artisan Gluten-Free Dough. There are other glaze options in Easy Artisan Glaze with Variations Easy Artisan Glaze With Variations. The loose dough is harder to work with than a traditional wheat dough for cinnamon rolls, so follow the tips given in the recipe. The recipe was a little confusing as to the size of the rectangle & the rolls, so I have adjusted that in the directions. Bake in greased muffin tins. If you don't have a baking stone, you can still make artisan breads, just make sure your oven has preheated for at least 30 minutes & add 2 cups of hot water to a broiler pan. I will include this recipe in my shared Gluten-Free cookbook
