Cinnamon Roll Bear Claw

When I was looking for cinnamon rolls recipe,found a video of shaping the cinnamon bear claw.The shape sounds quiet interesting and attractive.But the recipe was not clearly given and started searching for bear claw recipe,found a very nice recipe here.The shape and picture of the recipe made me to try immediately and came out good.
Coming to the shape I couldn't achieve like the original one and made the roll slightly bigger.Instead of cutting a roll into 3 pieces,I cut into two.The taste was amazing and while baking the house was filled with the aroma of cinnamon.My kiddo enjoyed it to the core and loved the cinnamon flavor.For the given measurement 4 bear claws can be made.I made 2 claws one day and refrigerate the rest of the dough,made cinnamon buns on the next day.As there was no charge in the camera I couldn't take the pictures of it.Off to the recipe...........................

  • Take all purpose flour,butter,instant yeast,salt and sugar in a bowl.To this add the lukewarm milk and mix it to a soft dough.Knead the dough on a floured surface for 10 minutes till it becomes smooth and elastic.Shape the dough and keep it in a warm place for 11/2 hours or the volume of the dough doubled.

  •  Meanwhile mix the sugars and cinnamon powder in a bowl and line the baking tray with parchment paper.Keep it aside.
  • After the dough has risen well,pinch it down and roll it.Divide the dough into two equal portions.Now slightly floured the surface and roll the each divided to a 12x 15 inch sheet.Brush it with a tbs of butter and sprinkle half of  the sugar-cinnamon mixture.

  • Now carefully roll from the one end and roll it to a log and pinch the ends and seal it.Cut the roll into half and pinch the cut end to seal.Place the rolls on the baking tray and slightly curve it.Now with a help of shears,make 5-6 cuts on the rolled log as shown.Not to cut all the way through.Continue it for the rest of the rolls.

  • Now brush it with the rest of the butter and pre heat the oven at 350 F.Bake the rolls for 30-40 minutes or until golden.Remove it and cool it on a cooling rack.After its completely cool down,mix the powdered sugar,vanilla and milk in a bowl.Drizzle it on the top the rolls using a spoon.

  •  Cut and serve.

    • The dough should be slightly stick,don't add too much of flour while kneading.
    • The rolls taste better when it is served warm,just microwave it for 5 seconds and serve. .
    • The sweetness was just perfect if you want it a bit sweeter version then add another tbs of sugar.
    • The amount of cinnamon powder can be increased according to personal preference.I reduced the amount from the original recipe.
    • For the cinnamon powder,I kept the whole cinnamon in the microwave for a minute and powder it in a coffee grinder and sieve it.



    my EO loves cinnamon ... its not as buttery as I thought it would be.. am sure to make it once this BM ends ! thanks nalini !

    This is what I call a perfect cinnamon roll.

    My kids love cinnamon rolls too and your cinnamon bear claws look good. BTW does the cinnamon filling ooze out and burn by any chance?

    That is a very fragrant and tasty filling. The claws look really good.

    Suma, I didn't seal the edges properly for one of the roll,so it oozed out and the other was so perfect...

    Lovely looking rolls!! My kids love these rolls in whatever shape :)

    The rolls might be big but the shape is still adorable. I can imagine & smell the cinnamon aroma filling the house while the claws baked.
