The World’s Greatest Cinnamon Rolls

You know what’s great? The little lip balms that look like mini eggs. Piano music on a blustery day. Smiley face stickers. Finding a ten-dollar bill in an old purse. Laughing so hard you cry a little. And most of all…cinnamon rolls. Specifically, these cinnamon rolls. The best EVER. No, I’m not kidding. They are perfection.

Clone of a Cinnabon

I used to love Cinnabon. Really, I still do. I just can’t afford them anymore. Financially or physically. For a playoff Sunday of football, I figured I could make an exception. At least on the physical part. These are exactly like the real thing – and a dozen don’t cost anywhere CLOSE to $30. Best served warm from the oven, but if you zap them in the microwave a few seconds they are practically good as new. I actually had to “borrow” a photo from because when I brought these to my sister’s house, they were gone in about 12 seconds. I didn’t get a chance to take a picture – so sorry for the stretched version here. Someone there (who shall remain anonymous) – actually grabbed the baking dish from me as I was heading to rinse it off and proceeded to eat all the extra filling/frosting that has leaked out. I’m actually a little jealous I didn’t think to do that myself. The frosting especially. I wanted to eat it with a spoon. The filling is delicious too. Every other cinnamon bun recipe I’ve seen uses white sugar in the filling. The brown gives it a caramelly richness that’s fabulous. [Read more…]

Well, it’s official. I think I’m finally getting over the cold/cough that has kept me bedridden the majority of the past week. I don’t even know what day it is today…and haven’t left the warm snuggly of my bed for more than an hour or so in about 5 days. My poor kids have been baby-sat by the DVD player that whole time and goodness only knows what they’ve been eating. I’m just thankful my hubby can manage to keep them alive when I get sick like that.

So, it’s time to dig out. I have about 12 loads of laundry to catch up on, dishes piled everywhere, devotionals to read and football snacks to prepare. I’m starting this morning by using the bread machine my aunt just gave me. I used to own a bread machine, but never used it. I didn’t like the brick like blocks of bread so it just sat in my cupboard. Finally it became garage sale fodder. Recently however, I’ve decided that bread making would be a whole lot easier if I could just get past the dough stage. So when my sweet aunt offered me her virtually new machine, I took it gladly. I have cinnamon roll dough going right now. It took about 2 minutes to put all the stuff in there. When the dough is ready all I’ll have to do is roll it out, fill it and roll it up. I’m pretty stoked about it. Also today I’m making biscuits and gravy for my sister’s Seahawks party tomorrow morning. Recipes to come soon on both these breakfast foods.

I missed you all. It’s nice to be back.
