One Hour Instant Pot Cinnamon Rolls

You’ve probably heard of the Instant Pot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But these simple & easy to follow recipes work with any pressure cooker! All pressure cookers work on the same, simple principle: Steam pressure.

Within the sealed pot, the steam builds up therein to a very high pressure, which helps food cook much faster than other traditional methods, such as with crock pots and or ovens!

This recipe took me many tries to acquire right. But I am happy to say, these cinnamon rolls will only take an hour from begin to finish! AND THEY ARE incredible! 🙂 Please note I proofed them in the Instant Pot, I did not cook them in the Instant Pot!

Cinnamon Rolls
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 Cup Brown Sugar
3-4 tsp Cinnamon

If you do not have a Pressure Cooker with a Yogurt Setting, put your dough into a bowl, cover with a towel and put on the counter to double in size.

Cinnamon Rolls
Separate dough into 2 sections. Using one section at a time roll out into a rectangle. Add Brown Sugar and Cinnamon evenly over dough.
Roll Dough and pinch seam together. cut with a floss or a knife and put on greased cookie sheet
Bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Frost and Enjoy.
