Happy New Year!!

In spite of all the goodies our family has been devouring over the holidays, I still felt the need to make something special for our New Year's breakfast.  When my children were younger they liked to make Pillsbury Cinnamon rolls.  They loved the way the tube popped when you opened it and it was something they could make by themselves.  I decided that cinnamon rolls made from scratch would be the perfect start to the New Year.

If you haven't visited Suzanne McMinn's blog, "Chickens in the Road," you are really missing something special.  She has a wonderful take on rural life, crafts, gardening, and recipes.  I used her "Overnight Cinnamon Rolls" recipe and the results were terrific.

The batter was easy to mix.

The dough only had to rise for an hour before rolling out.

You can let them do their final rise in the refrigerator overnight or pop them in the oven after a second rise of 30 minutes.

Every roll disappeared.
