Cranberries Are The Perfect Tart Addition To Balance Sweet Cinnamon Rolls
To bring an unexpected flavor to your next batch of cinnamon rolls, add cranberries. Their tartness helps balance out the dessert's sweetness.
The cranberries are cooked down and mixed with ingredients to make the filling, so the tartness is swirled into it. To bring it all together, orange juice is infused in the icing.
If you're not a cranberry fan but still want to incorporate some tartness into your cinnamon rolls, you can swap them for another tart fruit such as cherries or red currants.
