Cinnamon Pinwheels 

The other day I really wanted cinnamon rolls, but I didn’t have any so I improvised. I used my two ingredient bagel recipe as a base, added cinnamon, sugar and butter to create these tasty “cinnamon pinwheels.” These definitely don’t have the same sweetness level as a cinnamon roll, but if you like an easy cinnamon recipe, this one is perfect.

Cinnamon Pinwheels

Crafted from a simple two-ingredient bagel base, these pinwheels are infused with the warm flavors of cinnamon and sugar. Perfect for a quick and easy cinnamon fix, they’re sure to become a favorite in your household!

Ingredients

Self-Rising Flour: This versatile flour is a key player in creating the light and fluffy texture. Self-rising flour contains a leavening agent, typically baking powder, which helps the dough rise and achieve the desired thickness without the need for additional ingredients.

Plain Greek Yogurt: Adding a creamy richness to the dough, plain Greek yogurt serves as a binding agent. Its acidity helps tenderize the dough while providing a boost of protein.

Butter (Melted): When melted and brushed onto the dough, it creates a base for the cinnamon and sugar.

Ground Cinnamon: Ground cinnamon brings warmth and depth to the pinwheels with its sweet and spicy aroma.

Granulated Sugar: A touch of sweetness is essential to balance the warm notes of cinnamon. Granulated sugar adds just the right amount of sweetness, enhancing its flavor without overwhelming the palate.

Instructions

Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper for easy cleanup.

Prepare Dough: In a mixing bowl, combine the self-rising flour and plain Greek yogurt. Stir until a smooth dough forms, ensuring all ingredients are well incorporated.

Roll Out Dough: Place the dough on the parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough into a flat rectangle, approximately 1/4 inch thick.

Add Butter: Brush the flattened dough with the melted butter, ensuring it is evenly distributed over the surface.

Sprinkle Cinnamon and Sugar: Sprinkle the ground cinnamon and granulated sugar evenly over the dough, covering the entire surface.

Roll Into Cylinder: Starting from one end of the rectangle, tightly roll the dough into a cylinder shape, creating a spiral pattern as you roll.

Cut Into Pinwheels: Slice the rolled dough into equal-sized pieces, to create individual pinwheels.

Bake to Perfection: Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for approximately 15 minutes, or until the pinwheels are golden brown.

Serve and Enjoy: Once baked to perfection, remove the cinnamon pinwheels from the oven and allow them to cool slightly before serving.
