This recipe is the perfect combination of savory and sweet. The bourbon-soaked bacon adds a smoky, savory, bold taste to normal cinnamon rolls. The ginger and pecan topping makes for a crunchy, spicy finish. —Shannen Casey, Berkeley, California

Ingredients

  • 8 bacon strips
  • 3/4 cup bourbon
  • 1 tube (12.4 ounces) refrigerated cinnamon rolls with icing
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh gingerroot

Directions

Place bacon in a shallow dish; add bourbon. Seal and refrigerate overnight. Remove bacon and pat dry; discard bourbon.
In a large skillet, cook bacon in batches over medium heat until nearly crisp but still pliable. Remove to paper towels to drain. Discard all but 1 teaspoon drippings.
Preheat air fryer to 350°. Separate dough into eight rolls, reserving icing packet. Unroll spiral rolls into long strips; pat dough to form 6x1-in. strips. Place one bacon strip on each strip of dough, trimming bacon as needed, then reroll forming a spiral. Pinch ends to seal. Repeat with remaining dough. Transfer four rolls to the air fryer basket; air-fry 5 minutes. Turn rolls over and air fry until rolls are golden brown, about 4 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine pecans and maple syrup. In another bowl, stir together ginger with contents of icing packet. In same skillet, heat remaining bacon drippings over medium heat. Add pecan mixture; cook, stirring frequently, until lightly toasted, 2-3 minutes.
Drizzle icing over warm cinnamon rolls; top with pecans. Yield: 8 rolls.

Test Kitchen tip
  • In our testing, we have found cook times vary dramatically between brands of air fryers. As a result, we have given wider than normal ranges on suggested cook times. Begin checking at the first time listed and adjust as needed.
