My family is celebrating Chanukah right now, and one of the ways we celebrating is by eating fried foods! The oil that the food is fried in helps us remember the miracle of the oil in the Chanukah story. When the Temple was restored, there was only enough oil to light the holy lamp for one night, but instead, the oil lasted for eight nights, enough time for more holy oil to be made.
The food usually associated with Chanukah is potato latkes, pancakes made with shredded potato. But we decided to put a modern spin on Chanukah by making fried cinnamon rolls!
Making them was pretty simple. First, I opened a can of Pillsbury® Cinnamon Rolls. I rolled flat each cinnamon roll, then cut them in half. I heated some canola oil in a pot on the stove, put in the cinnamon roll halves, and cooked them until they were golden brown on both sides.
After draining the rolls on a wire rack above paper towels, I placed them on a plate and added some powdered sugar. My daughter used blue icing to decorate them and make them more festive!
