I went all out this weekend making these cinnamon rolls. This is the classic example of a food I DO NOT eat. I like sweet stuff, but never for breakfast. I’m totally savory food gal when it comes to breakfast, but every once in a while, I make an exception. The Hubs, being a true southerner, loves stuff like this, and he was thrilled to see me busting out the sugar before noon.
I’d never made cinnamon rolls from scratch before, but The Hubs worked at Cinnabon in high school, so his two cents were helpful. Honestly though, I really hate rolling out dough. Whether it’s for cookies, cinnamon rolls, pie, anything…..it’s really something I despise. I can never get it to roll in the shape I want, and I always either get a rip in the dough, or its too thick. Maybe I just need more practice, but I really dread it.
It took a couple tries to get this rolled into a nice rectangle, but I managed, and these turned out great. A wonderful brunch option for a gorgeous fall day in SoCal.
