Cinnamon Rolls

I finally made Pioneer Woman's Cinnamon Rolls today and I'm glad I did! I've had most of the ingredients since before the holidays, just never got around to making them. Of course, most of the ingredients I keep on hand at all times so really, it was just the trays that I had on hand since before the holidays. They look delicious, I actually haven't baked them yet but they look and smell heavenly even at this point. I knew the recipe was a big one and even read the part about it making 45-50 rolls but I totally blocked out just how many that was until I saw them all sitting on my table. I got 48 really nice looking ones from the middle cuts and another pan of 7 or 8 end pieces that will still be delicious but don't look as pretty. Almost 5 dozen rolls! Luckily it says to wrap pans tightly with foil and put in freezer before they rise for future use. I'm stocked up for at least a few days...

I was taking pictures of them all in the pans and Oliver slowly peeked up over the edge. I laughed and luckily got the picture! He wanted to know if they were done yet.
I wanted to know if he was going to help clean up the mess.
After all, he did help assemble them.

Actually, it wasn't too bad...that cookbook there on the left, one of my favorite Christmas presents ever! Even if you don't like to cook, the book is beautiful.

Heading for the deep freeze. I will let you know how they turn out after a freeze, thaw, rise and bake session. I'm sure they'll be fantastic.

yes Amy, it is the Pioneer Woman's cookbook. I am sure that it is available in some bookstores but Joel bought it for me off of Amazon. One of the best presents Joel ever bought himself. ;)
