Doesn’t every culture have its form of the classic cinnamon roll?
Isn’t that a wonderful thing?
I am always wondering about the first person who decided to add the ingredients of cinnamon and butter together, spread it on bread dough and roll it up for slicing. What creativeness in the kitchen.
I came across this simple cinnamon roll recipe after deciding this year, I was going to delve into the baking arena. I tried it once and thought the deliciousness of the outcome was just beginner’s luck.
I tried a second and third time with this recipe and met with succulent success each time. Something like this, cinnamon rolls, seemed so scary to me for so many years. So, I made them yet again to see if it really was possible to continue duplicating yumminess, BUT this time froze them ahead of time to simplify holiday prep time. From freezer… to thawing… to oven they were sweet deliciousness.
I put my dough in muffin tins because I liked how they all come out the same size.
I’ve made these with two types of frosting. The cream cheese frosting sits up nice and thick on top of the cinnamon rolls (Shhh…I use Pillsbury frosting in the can. Yum).
A glaze type frosting cools transparent and has less presentation but is so tasty. I just melt a stick of butter and then keep adding powdered sugar until it looks nice and glazy. I also cannot resist adding a tsp. of vanilla to it.
These easy cinnamon rolls originally entered our house around Christmas time but they are becoming a year round holiday request.
|Spring is here, Spring is there, Spring is soon going to be everywhere!|
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend. Whether you celebrated the Spring tidings with the Easter bunny and Easter baskets or the religious celebration of Easter, relaxing and being together with loved ones is a holiday everyone needs. I can tell from everyone’s beautiful blogs, that sugar was definitely involved and consumed!
