Rousing success on the cinnamon front

OK. Baking is usually messy. BUT, this time - these cinnamon rolls - were a tornado. Wrapped in a hurricane. Babysitting twin two year olds.
Behold - the chaos of my kitchen during the baking (and heck ya, that's a wine glass. Mrs. A, real-life baking idol and over at Our Poverty With a View, has taught me nothing if not, "Always drink when baking.")Disturbing, right? Well, much like the mamas I know, I have to say that all that labor was worth it. Check out the little darlings rising a bit before they hit the oven.
And, the finished product! Crispy, yet gooey. Pioneer Woman again saves the day. The hubs will wake up to a fabulous birthday tomorrow, no doubt.

PS This recipe made cinnamon rolls for life. They spilled forth from the Kitchen Aide like freshmen to a kegger. Make room in the freezer, is all I'm saying.


  1. Holla! Those look amazing. This cements my belief that we made the right choice to drive to Minnesota to buy that cookbook!
    PS-please bring me some cinnamon rolls.

  2. I cut this recipe in half and still ended up with 5 pans of cinnamon rolls!!
