Homemade Easy Cinnamon Rolls! YUMMY!

Cinnamon Rolls collage

Here is a fabulous recipe for homemade easy cinnamon rolls that I orgionally posted on  Father’s Day.  My kids have requested that we have cinnamon rolls this year on Christmas morning, in addition to my mom’s sausage strata casserole. So, it looks like we’ll have both this year.  I especially love that I can make this recipe the night before and pop in the oven in the morning.  I saw the recipe online at Kevin & Amanda, however I made a couple of adaptions.
See my step-by-step tutorial below..

Ingredients for Cinnamon Rolls

‘.Gather the ingredients below:

  • 2 Cans Crescent Rolls
  • 1/2 Cup White Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup raisins and/or nuts optional
  • 1 Stick Butter Softened
  • 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar

Cinnamon Rolls

Lightly flour counter tops..

Unroll crescent rolls.  I happened to find the sheets of crescent roll dough on sale.  If you use regular crescent roll dough, make sure to unroll dough carefully and pinch seams together to form a large rectangle.

Slather 1/2 stick room temperature butter all over dough.  Kinda like you are icing a cake.  (Yep, I got a little excited and started adding the cinnamon before I took a picture.  Busted.).

Mix together 1/2 cup regular sugar and 1/4 cup cinnamon..

 Sprinkle generously all over buttered dough..

My kiddos and I love, love, love raisins.  If you don’t then skip this step.  Totally optional, you can add nuts too..

Carefully roll the dough..

As you roll make sure to tuck in the layer underneath to keep the roll tight..

Pat the ends in, to even out the dough..

Using a serrated bread knife, carefully cut into 8 pieces.  (If you don’t have a bread knife any knife will do just be careful not to smush the dough when you slice it.).

Wrap up in wax or parchment paper.  If you don’t have any you could cover with plastic wrap.,

Place in fridge overnight..

Mix together the other half of the stick of butter melted and 1/4 cup brown sugar.  Then pour in bottom of cast iron skillet or baking pan.  Sooooo not healthy but ooooohhhh so good.  It’s okay to splurge every now and then right? .

IMG_2687Doesn’t every southern girl have a cast iron skillet?  These were my grandmothers, sweet memories of cooking in the kitchen with her flood my mind every time I use them...

Can hardly wait!  Bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for 20 minutes..

There are no words to tell you how yummy these are.

Sweet Vanilla Glaze - Combine 2 cups powdered sugar, 4 tablespoons milk, 2 tablespoons of melted butter and 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla..

Top with sweet vanilla glaze while still hot.

These are the BEST cinnamon rolls I’ve ever had.  Although we’ve been on a quest to eat healthier and exercise, on special occasions we’re still gonna eat oooey gooey cinnamon rolls.   I’m okay with that.
