Cinnamon Rolls

Cinnamon Rolls
-The Pioneer Woman

I've got a link over to the Pioneer Woman and really like her recipes. She's really funny and I love the step by step pictures. Last week I had to make something for the teacher appreciation breakfast at the kids' school, and I've done muffins, French toast casserole, and banana bread. At the same time, our Enrichment leader was gathering Christmas traditions to put together into a book for our December Enrichment night. I had mentioned that we always have homemade cinnamon rolls and she asked for the recipe. I had always used Betty Crocker, but I couldn't find the cookbook (it has since reappeared- hmmmmm) so I was looking online for it. While I was looking, I remembered the Pioneer Woman had a recipe on her blog, so I went to check it out. It makes a ton! So I decided to treat Perry and make some for him to take to work. They were such a hit! So much that they were requested for his breakfast potluck next week.

Makes 7 pans of about 8-9 rolls each.

My Notes
Because I haven't been in school forever, 1 quart= 4 cups. A package of yeast is 2 1/2 tsp. When I do this again, I'm going to soften the butter, not melt it. I also left the coffee out of the icing.

I'm making this for Perry's bosses- maybe he'll make VP this year. Seriously, they're good.
