From peach lavender to cinnamon sugar, these fan tan rolls make a delicious brunch treat or anyday snack. Be warned: They are addictive.
I'm going to preface this by saying, consider yourself warned: Seriously addictive little pull apart rolls ahead! These rolls get their name from the way the layers fan out to create such a unique, beautiful shape.
It's like those fans of puffed dough are just beckoning you to come over and take a nibble. Oh, and my favorite part about these rolls is that each tender layer is full of flavor.
Here I've made two different variations, cinnamon sugar and peach lavender. I have a special place in my heart for that peach lavender jam. Everything I add it to becomes something extra special, worth savoring.
Each of these variations is wonderful in its own right, but you could certainly use whatever flavor suits your fancy; strawberry, cherry and raspberry jams all beckon just as much.
You could even create a savory version with garlic and herbs – the perfect addition to a bowl of steaming bowl of soup.
Serve these rolls still warm, shortly out of the oven. They're perfect for a brunch or afternoon snack.
These rolls take a bit of time and patience, as most bread does, but the result is well worth the wait. My husband, Mike, devoured 4 of the 6 cinnamon fan tan rolls I made in a matter of a half hour - and he’d like you to know that was him exercising self-control!
