|Gluten-free Cinnamon Roll from Mariposa Bakery in Oakland, CA|
Ground hazelnut paste looks a lot like cinnamon goo (like the kind on cinnamon rolls). When visiting Swiss bakeries, Isaiah and I would often spot some delicious-looking pastry filled with what appeared to be cinnamon goo. Time and time again we'd order the pastry hoping maybe this time it would be cinnamon-y. We actually never learned our lesson and never found a pastry made with cinnamon.
Friends in Switzerland, does such a pastry exist? Perhaps in the French region? The only time we ever had cinnamon rolls was at an American-Swiss household. Now don't get me wrong. The Nussgipfel makes a sweet breakfast on the go, but I think the Swiss ought to experiment with a "Zimtgipfel."
