Cinnamon Rolls are one of those treats that I have to make sure I make seldomly. I love Cinnamon Rolls about as much as I love donuts or burgers, which both are one of my favorite foods to eat. As much as I love these things, I also love just about anything with puff pastry.
Puff Pastry is a wondering bread that is practically all butter with a little help flour. When it bakes it rises and becomes this light, airy, and buttery dough of goodness with layers of flaky goodness. Because there is so much butter in this recipe, you have to bake it when its cold, at least in this recipe. That is going to produce amazing flaky cinnamon rolls.

Commonly Asked Questions
Why doesn’t my puff pastry rise like yours?
Three reasons that I can think of is the dough isnt cold enough. For this recipe, you don’t want the puff pastry to sit out at room temperature. It should still be closed when the rolls are assembled and placed in the oven. Also, make sure you continue to keep the oven door closed the entire baking time as well. Lastly, your oven isn’t reaching the high temperature it requires.
No. Because there is so much butter in the pastry already, you don’t need to add butter to the filling or brush melted butter on the outside. Its’s fine the way it is. In fact, if you add butter, the cinnamon rolls may come out goopy.
Yes. Even if you make your dough from scratch, you still want to make sure the dough is refrigerated and roll out the dough into a 9X9 square.
