Best Cinnamon Rolls!

I started making cinnamon rolls when I was 15. I got a job at a little bakery and learned how to make them from scratch. They are great and I haven't wanted to try any other recipe until I found the Pioneer Woman blog. Her cinnamon rolls are her top rated recipe and they get such great reviews. I knew I had to give them a try.

So, for Fathers Day I made them & I love them. I don't know if I can go back. They are amazing. They make A LOT of rolls, I made 6 tins full (I froze 2 for later.) The dough is light and just melts in your mouth. The frosting is what made it absolutely sinful. I felt like I had made the best donuts ever, it tasted just like donut maple frosting.

It is nice also because you make the dough the night before and then roll them out in the morning. It took me about an hour and a half in the morning from start to bite! I will be making these many more times & can't wait to try them out of the freezer!

I am linking to Pioneer Woman for this recipe. She has amazing step-by-step instructions for you! The only difference I made was not adding the coffee in the frosting, it didn't need it!

  4. I made these and they were SOOOOO Yummy! I ate way to many, but oh so worth it. Thanks for sharing.

  5. i just made these and they were so good! thank you thank you! but could you tell me how you freeze them? when in the process, how you wrap them, how long to let them thaw out etc?

  6. Hi Wendy!

    I freeze them right after I get them in the pans. I wrap them in saran wrap and then also in tin foil, that has worked great for me. When I want to bake them, I just take them out about an hour ahead of time and then pop into the oven. They defrost and raise for a little bit, and then the oven speeds up the process. The only problem has been having too much of the frosting for me to put on everything - when you are only baking one pan at a time you have a lot left over! I hope that helps, thank you!!

  7. I absolutley love your recipes and have been trying a couple of them. I wanted to let you know that I've decided to give you The Lovely Blog Award, you can see more here:

  10. Amy, when you froze some rolls, were they completely made (with frosting) and then frozen? Or did you just freeze the dough?
