Cinnamon Rolls

Hey everyone!

This post is rather straight-forward. Most of you know and probably love cinnamon rolls, the cousins of my absolute favorite, sticky buns. But how many of you make them yourselves? They're so easy it's hard to pay for one or want a store-bought one after you make them yourself a few times!! So it's not a specific recipe, more a technique, so here goes!

The BF rolling up the cinnamon rolls.
The BF and I made two sizes- smaller ones for me...
And jumbo ones for him!
The cream cheese icing comes together fast- butter, cream cheese, vanilla, 10x sugar, and a pinch of salt!
And here are the finished rolls! You can tell we couldn't wait to eat one before we took the picture even :)

I just use the same recipe for the dough as I do for my sticky buns- recipe here.
Then roll out your dough, fill with butter, cinnamon, and sugar to your taste, roll up, and slice to whatever size you prefer. Let rise overnight in the fridge or for 30-45 minutes in a warm room. Bake at 375 F in a plain buttered pan (probably a 9x13 for the whole batch, depending on roll size) for 35-45 minutes or until golden brown.
Make whatever kind of icing you like best, and top your rolls- and enjoy! We made cream cheese frosting, but you can use plain, or the BF even used some leftover icing from making White Russian Cupcakes. Make it how you like it!

Then gobble your cinnamon rolls up like the deliciousness they are- for breakfast, or anytime!

Savor it!
love, rue
