Boosted cinnamon rolls

Status: Beta

Makes: about 12 rolls

Takes: about 4 hours start to finish

This is based on this a recipe from King Arthur Flour, but has been optimized for how I personally prefer cinnamon rolls: with citrusy frosting and a lot of cinnamon taste.

It turns out that adding a carefully chosen amount of freshly ground black pepper to cinnamon causes it to taste more cinnamony when it comes out of the oven. Too much pepper, and it tastes like pepper (which I also like, but that’s not the goal here).
