I found this recipe years ago on the internet. I don’t remember which website I was on or who was the author unfortunately. I may have even gotten it through one of those old Yahoo email list groups that I was on at the time. Wherever it came from, this recipe is now a Christmas tradition here at our house. There is not an option to not make these, according to my children. LOL
One year, I didn’t make them because they hadn’t eaten much of them the two times prior, and I thought there was going to be a revolt! It was like anarchy when the kids realized these cinnamon rolls were not in the oven, waiting on them to finish unwrapping presents. Now it’s one of those things that I hear about every single year on Christmas Eve: “Remember the time you forgot to make the cinnamon rolls, Mom? You remembered to get the stuff again for this year, right?” I’ve never forgotten again.
Make sure you only fill your pan halfway with the dough. It needs room to rise, and a shallow pan allows the topping to slide off! Also, don’t substitute margarine. Use REAL BUTTER! These are ooey gooey cinnamon rolls, and they’re sure to be a hit at any gathering!
Merry Christmas from all of us at Striving Acres Farm!
