Cinnamon Rolls

Ever since I saw the Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Icing on Gastronomy, I have been waiting for the opportunity to make them. The pictures were so enticing! I have never even thought I could make cinnamon rolls on my own but the recipe looked fairly easy.



I thought I would submit this recipe to the blogging event Bookmarked Recipes, "where anyone from anywhere can blog about a recipe they had bookmarked from a cook book, food magazine, food blog, food website, from TV etc, make it and submit it to a weekly roundup".



The opportunity came when my family visited for Easter. I thought it would be a nice treat on Saturday morning after fasting on Good Friday. Since my mom doesn't like butter, I replaced it with margaine. I also did not have buttermilk, so I replaced it with milk and lemon. The cinnamon rolls still turned out well and we all enjoyed it! The house also smelled wonderfully!

Doesn't that look impressive?

Success!! Cinnamon rolls always struck me as a food that was difficult to make from scratch, but this recipe really is awesomely simple. Woot to YOU!

Thanks for the recipe, C! By the way, do you think these can be made the night before and baked the next morning? This would cut the prep time in the morning...

Good question! My guess would be yes, but I'm not positive. Maybe prepare a batch and bake half immediately and then half the next morning? That way if the second batch fails, you'll get to enjoy the first batch.
