    Do you think you could make this with the sheets of crescent dough?

    Anyone in western WA know which chain stores carry frozen bread dough? I’ve never seen it.

      Valerie – most grocers carry them in the freezer aisle. I can typically find a Rhodes brand and even a store brand in some cases.

    I am inspired to try this with a boxed gluten-free bread mix! I’m not much of a baker and haven’t had cinnamon rolls for going on 20 years… these strawberry ones sound delish! :P

  4. Ronni says:

    Do you think this would warm up in the oven instead of microwave? Or do you think we could freeze the dough after it’s risen and thaw and bake the morning we were wanting to serve?

    • Lisa says:

      Ronni – Yes you can reheat in the oven instead of microwave. And you can freeze after the first rise, then thaw and rise and bake in the morning.
