Cinnamon Raisin Rolls with Hazelnut Frosting

Recipe By Autumn Ongaro | Evolving Autumn
Prep Time 10 minutes
Bake Time 25 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes
Servings 4


  • 1 sheet puff pastry
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon

Hazelnut Frosting

  • 1/2 cup icing sugar
  • 1-2 tbsp milk
  • 25 drops Hedessent Hazelnut Flavour Drops
  • 15 drops Hedessent Vanilla Cookie Flavour Drops
  • Pinch of salt


  • If puff pastry is frozen, thaw per manufacturer's instructions. Preheat oven to 375° F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Using a pastry brush, water wash the entire surface of the puff pastry.
  • Combine the sugar, cinnamon, and raisins in a small bowl. Evenly sprinkle over the pastry and press lightly into the dough.
  • Starting at the widest end, gently roll pastry into a tight cylinder. Using a serrated knife, slice cylinder into 1-inch rolls and place onto parchment paper.
  • Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.


  • While rolls are baking, prepare the frosting. Combine all frosting ingredients in a small bowl. Start with 1 tablespoon of milk and add a bit more if needed until the consistency is loose enough to drizzle.
  • Drizzle frosting over the rolls and enjoy!
