This is how my entry is starting today because I want to share how fabulous my cinnamon rolls turned out but I am pretty exhausted from 3 hours of baking so bear with me because some of this might not make sense.
I knew I wanted to make cinnamon rolls this morning because I had plenty of free time and no where to be. I woke up at 9 and started making these and was not done until about 1:00 this afternoon. I now have a counter full of cinnamon rolls. I have started calling everyone that lives near me so I can pawn them off on them.
We ended up making half of the cinnamon rolls with unsalted butter and half with salted butter. I thought that the ones made with salted butter tasted best, however, my friend Eric thought the ones with unsalted tasted better. (basically use your judgement and go the way you feel)
I would also suggest making these with a friend. It really helped to have an extra set of hands for all the sprinkling of sugar and cinnamon.
The only other change I made to this recipe was that I used vanilla extract instead of maple flavoring and I used more milk instead of coffee in the frosting.
I would definitely suggest making these cinnamon rolls with one of your friends on a rainy day or when you have some free time.
You can find the recipe on Pioneer Woman’s website.
