who needs cinnabon????

I got this recipe from my friend, Debbie Lindstrom.  She is an AMAZING cook/baker.  She shared these on a moms email loop/group I have been a part of for about 10 years now.  when I first made these, they were gobbled up in a nanosecond.  I had to make another batch and then another….so, I figured out real quick that if I quadrupled the recipe, I could have enough for our family to get SICK of them and also have some to share.  I ALWAYS give some away when I make these or just plan on the family having them when there is a need for me to make them for someone.  I have even sold them, they are THAT good!!!!  they freeze very well. Microwaved they are delish or what I like to do if serving them for breakfast, is cook them just until the yeast is cooked…pull them out and save for that morning….put them back in to finish baking and then frost while hot.  One batch makes 2 dz, so I end up with about 8 dz cinnamon rolls….talk about yum!!!  I usually put as many as I can get onto my sheet pans and if I am taking them to others, put them in disposable pans.   I have taken these to neighbors, friends, enemies ;)…..they are easy to make for a crowd…..and always welcomed!!!  ENJOY!!!

I’m visiting from Steady Days! This looks amazing! I want to make it right now…but I think I’m going to resist! 😉

Whoa! I have to admit I’m a cinnamon roll purist–I prefer my cinnamon rolls without icing, but lots of goopy cinnamon caramel stuff–but cream cheese frosting, I must admit, is making my mouth water!

Mmmm I make homemade cinnamon rolls all of the time, but add a box on instant vanilla pudding to the mix, adds a lot of moisture. Now I REALLY want some! LOL

I’m pretty sure I need some!

thanks for the recipe!

Wow. I thought my recipe was good. The icing on these looks amazing. Even the dough recipe looks like it would be really chewing and doughy which is how I like them.

There is nothing like Cinnamon rolls to get my kids fired up for baking.

Thanks for Sharing.

I can only imagine how wonderful these must smell!

Dawn Wilkinson - August 24, 2010 - 11:48 pm

those look amazing!! If I ever feel ambitious, my family would love if I made these. For me, this would be ambitious. Martha Stewart? nope, she doesn’t live here. Think I could show my fam your picture and tell them to enjoy them vicariously? :0)

Howdy! I couldn’t resist! I’m making them. For future reference, at which point in the recipe would I put them in the freezer?

ginny - August 25, 2010 - 9:25 am

Lisa–yep…they are really worth it!! Not hard at all!!! What I do is–in most cases, I cook them all and frost them and then wrap them really well (in the pan) and freeze. We take a pan out and eat on that for a few days :) Microwaving them like this makes them eewy, gooey, good, but they still are good straight from the pan. If you want that fresh from the oven taste/texture, I cook them about 5 minutes )just until they are barely beginning to brown–that way the yeast is cooked well and won’t fall with too raw a dough….then I wrap and freeze…when ready to eat, put them back in the oven about 5 minutes and then frost while hot. The downside to this is that you have to have the frosting made or make it right then….but they are so good fresh out of the oven. I have made the whole 8 dozen, the frosting and frozen some and saved the frosting for later….it works. Let me know how you like them!!!

Kaye–you know…I KNOW we like the same foods….I LOVE the coconut cupcake recipe you put in the Sojourn cookbook all those years ago….and I have used it so many times….I found it in Ina Garten’s cookbook a few years ago and not realizing it was the same recipe…decided I LOVED it….then put it all together–it was the same!!! I know we share LOTS of the same recipes :) LOVE!!!

We have been working for several years to re-create my hubby’s grandma’s potato dough cinnamon rolls. The dough is delish…but I haven’t perfected the filling yet. May steal yours! And the frosting looks yummy, too. I may add that on. Passing through from Steady Mom.
