Chai Spice Cinnamon Rolls -

Mother Nature has been truly all over the place this winter here on the East Coast. Wooing us with 60-degree December days then pummeling us with a foot of snow and -20 degree temperatures unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. In my opinion, the best thing to do during brutal winter days is to huddle up inside, perhaps by a warm fire wearing a soft, cozy sweater. As you might have guessed, one of my other favorite things to do on a cold winter day is bake.

These Chai Spice Cinnamon Rolls are just the thing to warm you up from the inside out. I love the presentation of tender rolls swirled with all sorts of ingredients, sweet or savory. In the mood for a steaming bowl of soup? My Cheddar Herb Swirl Rolls are just the thing alongside. Filled with cheddar cheese, thyme and bourbon smoked paprika, they’re a flavor powerhouse.

If you’re looking for something more on the sweet side, these unique Lemon Cardamom Rolls are going to do the trick. Cardamom scented dough is swirled with lemon zested sugar. What emerges from your oven are fragrant, sticky sweet swirl rolls that are unforgettable. But if you’re looking for something a little more reminiscent of the cinnamon rolls you’ve grown up with then this Chai Spice Cinnamon Rolls recipe is right up your alley.

I adore chai tea all year long but especially in winter. I find it to be comforting with it’s beautiful, fragrant spices. Here, I channeled my love of spicy chai tea and translated it into cinnamon rolls. The result, is incredible. The smell of cardamom, ginger, cloves & allspice all together with classic cinnamon and brown sugar create a truly amazing combination. These cinnamon rolls are then topped with a simple powdered sugar glaze. They make a wonderful weekend breakfast or special treat for a snowy day!

These sound terrific Kate even though I’m not a big fan of chai…blame it on the overly sweetened and spiced experiences I’ve had in the past! Guess I need to make something myself and get it right for me because I do love those warm notes.

Your weather? Sure you’re not in Colorado? Sounds normal. 🙂

Thank you so much, Barb! I can definitely relate to chai sometimes being overwhelming or over sweet. I do hope you’ll give these a try and let me know if I was able to change your mind about chai 😉
