Another of Judith Fertig's recipes from 200 Fast & Easy Artisan Breads. I have never made gluten-free cinnamon rolls, so I hope this will provide a cinnamon roll fix for those on a gluten-free diet. Use half of Easy Artisan Gluten-Free Dough Easy Artisan Gluten-Free Dough. I have also posted the Easy Artisan Glaze with Variations Easy Artisan Glaze With Variations recipe to go with these. 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 & cinnamon 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.
