I do believe I might be the only wife/mom who has never made homemade cinnamon rolls!
(Please tell me I'm not the only one!!) :)
I've been very proud of my yummy homemade cinnamon rolls, even though to everyone else it seems to be a "Been There Done That" thing! ha ha!
I have to say that making these was SO MUCH fun!!! I loved it! And they were SO tasty too!
-Dough rolled out
-Brown sugar/butter mixture applied
-Dough rolled up
-Cutting the rolls out
(I couldn't believe they looked like the ones from the can!!!)
-After they had their second rise
-Ready to go in the oven!
-Glazed and ready to eat!
Okay, here's the truthful part--these took me about 2.5 hours!!! (YIKES!!)
I made these on a Saturday morning when Ryan was out cutting wood for us this winter (we heat our house with a wood stove). So the boys were excited to wake up to my announcement "I'm making cinnamon rolls for breakfast!" Let's just say after 2 hours of waiting with mouths watering, they devoured them!
Overall, they were worth it, but I learned a lot about multi-tasking for next time...and I learned how to prepare the dough the night before in a way that doesn't sour it!
I probably should have watched my instructional video a little better! But really, the West girls did it again! They explained each step so thoroughly that I was never left wondering "Am I doing this right?" during the process (and normally I ask myself that several times with a new recipe!)
So now it's your turn to tell me about your cinnamon roll recipe...and how long does it take you to make your homemade cinnamon rolls?
