How Do You Prepare Them For Reheating?

Before reheating frozen cinnamon rolls, it’s essential to prepare them properly. If the cinnamon rolls are stored in the freezer, it’s recommended first to thaw them in the refrigerator overnight. 

This helps to ensure that the cinnamon rolls will heat evenly and prevent uneven cooking. If the cinnamon rolls are already thawed, bring them to room temperature for at least 30 minutes before reheating.

Room-temperature cinnamon rolls will heat faster and more evenly than cold cinnamon rolls. It’s also a good idea to cover the cinnamon rolls with a damp towel or plastic wrap to help prevent them from drying out during reheating.
