sweet tooth sunday... cinnamon rolls :)

so yesterday was a bit of a lazy day for me... my hubby had work, so it was just me and the two little guys... who, by the way, had been up the night before WAY past their bed time... so i deemed Sunday to be movie and pajama day... i love that day :) especially when you have two rambunctious boys on your hands... i think pajama day should be a monthly holiday...
well anyways, i asked my oldest little guy what sweet treat he wanted me to make up... and at first he said ice cream, but once i told him it would take a little while to make, he quickly changed his mind to cinnamon rolls... and i jumped all over that... what's better then warming up a house on a cold day with the sweet smells of cinnamon... wanna know what's even better... eating these sweet bad boys, wrapped up in blankets with my two little guys, and watching toy story3 (which by the way... tear-jerker)... but hey, it's all about making memories people...

now, this recipe was new for me in the cinnamon roll world... instead of using my go to recipe, i decided to use the beignet recipe i used a few posts ago... i was so pleased with the way the beignets came out, that i figured why not try using the dough for something like cinnamon rolls... i know, i know, it's not a huge revelation in the baking world... but it worked for me :)
these babies came out soft, springy (can i use that word to describe baked goods?), flaky, and darn it... just plain delicious... and the sweet buttery filling was insanely good! brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and just a hint of ginger... mmmm... too bad i ate one a few minutes ago, cause now i'm feigning for another...
and i decided not to drench these guys in too much frosting... just a smear of sweet vanilla creamcheesie heaven...
don't you wanna just like the screen...
hope that satisfied your sweet tooth, cause it sure did satisfy mine... and as always...
happy baking everyone :)


  1. Yum! I've always wanted to make cinnamon rolls, but I've never had the guts. Maybe now I will have to try!

  2. Drown 'em Becky! :)

    Don't cinnamon rolls take a long time too? Or is it just that I'm kinda slow at making 'em?


tell me what you're thinking :)
