It happens to me every year around this time, I feel like a cinnamon roll. I think it comes with the cold weather, the snow and the Christmas talk – I love it. I think I can always find a semi-new way to make cinnamon rolls, but keep them simple because I think cinnamon rolls should stay simple (and extra soft and doughy). I’m not even very good at adding things like caramel and chocolate, because it’s just not a cinnamon roll in my mind. That’s not what I liked growing up.
Note: how many times do you think I’m going to say “cinnamon rolls” in this article? I think a lot. Way too many to count, that’s for sure.
What I loved growing up was my favorite baker’s cinnamon rolls. Yes, the Pillsbury Pie Maker has always been the family favorite over the vacations. These rolls were served for breakfast almost every morning in our cabin in Ripley, New York the week after Christmas. There is nothing like starting the day with a sweet breakfast. My cousins, brothers and I loved these cinnamon rolls (although they were never as good if overbaked). It was a great time. This area of New York gets a ton of snow and it was great to be all together to create memories that will last a lifetime.
