Make-Ahead and Freezing Instructions:

To Make-Ahead: Cinnamon roll blondies keep really well. You can store them in a sealable container at room temperature for two days and in the refrigerator for up to a week. If frozen, they will last for two months. Just make sure to wrap them up tightly in plastic wrap before freezing to keep the blondies fresh.

To Freeze: If you intend to freeze your cinnamon roll blondies right away, prebake them only halfway before wrapping them up and freezing. This means they are set but haven’t yet browned. Doing so will allow you to defrost them while baking them the rest of the way for a delicious crunchy golden top and fresh gooey center.

Notes

For an even swirl distribution: Ensure an even distribution of the cinnamon swirl for consistent flavor throughout; use a spatula to spread the swirl mixture across the batter gently.

Proper cooling time: Cool the blondies completely before adding the glaze. Warm blondies will cause the glaze to melt. This ensures a smooth, appealing finish.

Glaze consistency: Adjust the water quantity in the glaze gradually by adding only one tablespoon at a time to achieve the desired thickness; drizzle it over the cooled blondies for an enticing presentation.

Precise baking time: Monitor the oven closely. The baking time may vary depending on the type of oven, so check for a golden brown color and a firm texture to ensure the perfect blondie consistency. You can use a toothpick to prick the center of the blondie to test for doneness. If the batter sticks to the toothpick, it’s not ready.
