Better Call Saul begins with a present-day shot of Saul working in an Omaha Cinnabon, where he has ended up after fleeing Albuquerque and changing his identity in the penultimate episode of Breaking Bad. In this episode of Breaking Bad (Granite Slate) Saul told Walter White he was leaving the criminal life behind. “If I’m lucky, a month from now — best-case scenario — I’m managing a Cinnabon in Omaha,” said Saul.
Whether it was the best or worst-case scenario for Saul is unclear, but it’s worked out great for AMC and Cinnabon. The cinnamon-bun chain has teamed up with Better Call Saul since the show’s start, resulting in one of the most unique television business partnerships in recent memory.

110 gr brown sugar
90 gr mini chocolate chips
115 gr cream cheese room temperature

How to bake
1. Heat the milk in a small saucepan until it bubbles, then remove it from the heat.
2. Mix in the butter and stir until it is melted.
3. Let it cool until it feels lukewarm.
4. In a large mixing bowl, combine half of the flour, yeast, sugar and salt and mix it all well.
5. Add the water, egg and the milk mixture and beat well.
6. Add the remaining flour, a little bit at a time, stirring well after each addition.
7. When the dough has just pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until it is smooth. This takes about 5 minutes.
8. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let it rest for 10 minutes. 9. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together the peanut butter and brown sugar.
9. Roll out the dough into a 12×9 inch (30×23 cm) rectangle.
10. Spread the dough with the peanut butter mixture and sprinkle with mini chocolate chips.
11. Roll the dough up and pinch the seam to seal.
12. Cut it into 12 equal size rolls and place with the cut side up in a greased 9×13 (23×33 cm) pan.
13. Cover and let them rise until they are doubled. This takes about 30 minutes.
14. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
15. Bake the cinnamon rolls in the preheated oven for 30 minutes and let them cool completely afterward.
1. Cream together the cream cheese and peanut butter in a mixing bowl.
2. Add in the powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons of the heavy cream.

4. Add in more heavy cream if you want a thinner consistency.
5. Then spread on the baked rolls and top with more mini chocolate chips if desired.
6. And serve!
