Ridiculously Good Cinnamon Rolls
I love cinnamon rolls. I mean, there’s cinnamon, sugar, soft gooey dough and icing. What’s not to love?
Growing up, my mom made cinnamon rolls often, but almost always from a pre-made dough, like Rhodes or one you could pick up at the bakery of the local grocery store. They were delicious. And since I don’t live near her any more, I rarely get them. But I REALLY wanted some. Unfortunately those options aren’t really available where I live. So, homemade was going to have to be it.
Only one problem, I have never been able to successfully make homemade rolls. They’re always heavy and dense. So, I was kind of afraid to try these.
But, the woman whose recipe it is had a bunch of us over one night and showed us step-by-step how to make them.
I’ll admit, the first time I tried they weren’t that great. I KNEW the recipe was good, because I’d had the delicious ones she made. So, I knew it was me. The problem–adding too much flour. Don’t be afraid to have the dough a bit sticky. It’s better that way.
Ok–so here are some delicious cinnamon rolls that you can make in a couple of hours. Though, just about 20 minutes active time.
I know you can do it!

Note: For this recipe mixing as little as possible is very important. She uses her Food Processor with the dough blade. I’ve used both that, and my stand mixer. Both worked, though I liked results with the food processor a little better.
