So YUMMY!

I made some home-made, from scratch (I'm proud of myself, ok?) cinnamon rolls last weekend, for the first time ever! I don't know why I haven't sooner. I guess they just take so much time. By the time these were finally done, I was about to chew off the dog's leg, and Dale grabbed a roll before I could even get the frosting on! But they turned out really great! I tried this recipe because she claimed that they were 30 minute rolls, make at a moment's notice rolls, which they WERE NOT. Yes, I had them rise in the oven like she asked, which helped the rising to only add up to 30 minutes, but then there's the whole mixing and baking time involved. Anyways, if you have the time, or actually want to get up early (who does that?) to make some warm rolls for breakfast, these turned out amazing. The frosting was so SO good. However, the recipe calls for only 3 1/4 cups of flour. Maybe I made them on an exceptionally wet day (when is it not, here in WA?) but I needed about 6 cups, and even then, the dough was gooey. Let me know if you make them!

Way to go! they look great. We ALWAYS make cinnamon rolls on General Conf. weekend. It's a great tradition that it looks like you've joined!

Those look like Sister Rizley's yummy cinnamon rolls. I would like the recipe. You should post it.

Glazier's: There's a link to the recipe in the post! They DO look like Sister Rizley's, or President Thurston's look like this too, only then he bakes his in like two sticks of butter. They're amazing.

I'm sorry they didn't turn out better for you! I guess I wasn't specific- they take all together about 1 hr before they are ready to eat- 30-40 min to make.

A quicker, easier way...is to use a biscuit base (I like the Baking Powder Biscuit recipe in the red and white BHG cookbook) and roll them out like you would cinnamon rolls with the filling. No rising required and they taste pretty good.
