Every time I have a baking recipe that calls for putting the dough in the fridge for proofing, it actually halts my rising entirely, and the dough never seems to rise again - even in the oven. so, for example, today I was making rugelach, and it calls for rolling out the dough, folding, put in fridge for 20-30 minutes, and do this twice. then you shape them into cookies, and let rise for at least 1.5 hrs. my cookies never rose, even in the oven. it did however, rise as a ball, before rolling out and putting in fridge. and this seems to happen to me every time - like with cinnamon rolls - they will rise initially but once they go in the fridge that's it, not more rising, not even in the oven.
