Freezing Cinnamon Rolls - Before or After Baking?

mdepsmom | Oct 12, 201002:06 PM     20

I wil have a friend visiting from out of state in a few weeks, and I'd like to pre-make a pan of homemade cinnamon rolls for her to enjoy while she is here. Can I freeze them in their pre-baked state, or bake them first and then freeze them? I am guessing the former but would appreciate input either way. Which leads me to my next question -- if I freeze before baking, then should I let the pan sit out overnight to thaw/rise, or leave it in the fridge overnight, and sit out for awhile in the morning for the final rise? fwiw, I'll be making Alton Brown's recipe.
