If you ever make cinnamon rolls or other rolled dough rolls, then you may have experienced the struggle of keeping the round shape of the cinnamon rolls while cutting the rolls. In the past, my knives have often "squished" the dough while cutting it, leaving the rolls not-so-pretty, and certainly not round.
I finally learned that cutting your rolled dough with a serrated knife helps the dough to retain its shape. I was shocked at the difference, so I thought I'd share it with you, too. You could use a bread knife, though I just used a simple steak knife.
For those of you wondering, pictured above are ham and cheese roll-ups. This time I made them for my dad's surprise retirement party in a mini-size. I also added bacon pieces and minced onion for some extra flavor.
