Overnight Cinnamon Rolls


Christmas morning was at my house this year. This was a lot of pressure for someone who admits that I don't do breakfast. Half of a bagel or instant oatmeal is good for me! So, what to make, what to make? I decided on Alton Brown's Overnight Cinnamon rolls. They were a hit. Even my dad ate one, and he usually saves such things for breakfast the next day. Oh wait, this was breakfast! It really wasn't all that much to put together the night before. You assemble the rolls into almost their final form the day before. The day of, you have a little rise, then bake, make some icing, and ta-da cinnamon rolls!


Andy got up first, so I prepped and allowed for the second rise. Right before "Santa Gifts" I put them into the oven to bake. When there were cooling, it was easy enough to make the icing and then serve. My mom said they looked liked they came from a bakery. My FIL said "they don't make them like this anymore." We will see if they make it to next years breakfast menu.

Yum! I think I just noticed some drool out of the corner of my mouth. I hope they pack and mail well too!
