I love the Saturday mornings that we can wake up, have a lazy start, and make homemade Cinnamon Rolls.
Especially when I use this recipe and my kids can 100% help out in the kitchen.
They love it and I love it.
This recipe is similar to Cinnabon’s Cinnamon Rolls & who doesn’t love Cinnabon?!
I couldn’t resist posting this perfect bedhead. She seriously wakes up with the craziest hair every single morning. She must be getting some good sleep!
Waking up for kindergarten is going to be a rude awakening.
Sorry, back to the recipe. You can let these rise also overnight in the fridge for the 2nd rising time.
I experimented and they turned out just as good.
Cinnamon rolls are a weakness of mine, honestly any treats are. I love letting them help and roll the dough out. It doesn’t have to be a perfect rectangle. I’m not great at letting things go and having help in the kitchen, but I’m fine with having a couple of rolls on the front or back end a little bit smaller.
Besides rolling out the dough, they love “painting” the butter on and sprinkling the cinnamon sugar all over.
Do you cut your dough with floss? This recipe was the first time I’d heard of it and it makes total sense!
1st picture: Shimmy the floss on the bottom of the dough.
2nd picture: Pull floss up from the bottom, make sure it’s evenly spaced.
3rd picture: Crisscross the left and right
4th picture: Pull sides away from each other and it cuts all the way through
I can usually get 15 good sized rolls out of this recipe.
