Frozen Cinnamon Rolls

Murrmaid | Nov 23, 200401:05 PM     1

I like to bring something home-made as a hostess gift or for those who warrant more than a card. In the past I've made panetone, cranberry cordial, malted-cinnamon pancake mix (the King Arthur recipe - so good).

This year I'd like to give a pan of cinnamon rolls, preferably frozen so they can toss them in the freezer and bake at will.

** Is there a particular recipe that anyone knows of that will work better for this than others?

** At what point in the "construction" do I freeze the rolls - after the first rise (and after assembly), or after the second rise?

I'm assuming that one would let the rolls thaw in the fridge and then come to room temp before baking. I've let doughs go through their second rise overnight in the refrigerator but never baked a dough that I made from frozen.
