Cinnamon Rolls

I have made The Pioneer Woman's Cinnamon Rolls & her Blueberry Lemon Rolls. Both are SO good! My boys told me that "we should have these for breakfast EVERY day!."The great thing about this recipe is that the dough is cut in half at the end, and you can save the other half for any kind of rolls...breakfast or dinner rolls! My only tip is to make sure that you flour the surface that you are rolling the dough on REALLY well so that the dough doesn't stick when you are rolling up the rolls. This may or may not have happened to me, and I may or may not have turned my rolls into a breakfast casserole. Don't worry, if that happens, the rolls will still taste delicious! These are SO much better than store bought rolls, and they really aren't that difficult...they just take some prep time. Also, this recipe makes about three pans of cinnamon rolls, so make a batch and share some with a neighbor. It's the holidays...try them!
