There are many foods that are quintessentially Amish: shoofly pie and chicken corn soup, for instance. But there are other foods that while they may not be Amish per se, the Amish have adopted them and perfected them. Cinnamon rolls is one of these. While visiting Amish communities over the years some of my best culinary experiences have involved stumbling randomly into someone’s kitchen and discovering a fresh from the oven pan of cinnamon rolls. Sure, not every Amish cook makes great cinnamon rolls, but many do…I think the secret to these blissful bites are passed down through the generations, which each household have their own variation on this cinnamony speciality. We’ve done a lot of cinnamon roll recipes over the years on Amish365.com, this post attempts to pull them all together “under one roof” in a single post. Enjoy!
