This weekend we ENDURED our first real snow storm for 2016. It was cold and blustery and so perfect to curl up with some coffee and maybe something sweet. Thankfully, I had planned ahead of time and prepared some cinnamon rolls the night before and left them to rise in the fridge over night. I’m was hoping the amazing smell will rouse my boys and get them out of bed to prepare for some serious shoveling ( it DIDN’T happen).
Cinnamon rolls have been on my “most wanted” baking list but have always been reluctant about kneading the dough. But now I am the proud owner of a Kitchen-Aid Stand Mixer WITH a dough hook!!!!! Yeayyy!! My friend Ann assured me that life would never be the same. She also pointed me in the right direction for a great Cinnamon Roll recipe. The recipe can be found right here on Epicurious and I can also sadly inform you that each one of these gooey rolls carry 405 Calories!! But who’s counting anyway???
Try them out for yourself and let me Know what you think!
CHANGES: I OMITTED THE PECANS ALTOGETHER SO THE CALORIE COUNT IS A LITTLE LESS THAN I STATED. I ALSO BAKED THEM ALL IN ONE SQUARE 10 X 10 PAN SO AFTER BAKING THEM AT 375 FOR 20 MINUTES, I LOWERED THE TEMPERATURE TO 325° AND BAKED THEM ANOTHER 15 MINUTES.
