    Six-Pack Cinnamon Rolls

    These cinnamon rolls are baked in half-pint, wide-mouth mason jars, creating a convenient grab-and-go breakfast or a fun way to add some character to a beer-tasting brunch. Several beer styles will work well to create a tender, sweet dough. The basic lager is a solid choice, but don’t be afraid to branch out to a brown ale or spiced beer. You’ll need a little patience with these rolls in two ways. First, the dough rests and rises in the refrigerator for 20 to 24 hours. Second, it is a sticky dough, so use generously floured hands and surface to work with it. It’s worth it in the end, I promise!
