PW's Cinnamon Rolls

I have seen and heard about these all over! Pioneer Woman's Cinnamon Rolls!

The good thing is they make 7 pans of rolls!

The bad thing is they make 7 pans of rolls!

I mixed everything like the recipe says. I made mine in a large stockpot with enough room for the dough to double in size. It's been a little chilly here so I preheated the stove and let the dough rise in there.

I also had a couple of extra helping hands! It really helped with rolling up the 3+ feet of dough! We had an assembly line going. I cut, the big one buttered and put them in the pans. The bitty one was just there for comic relief!

Mmmm.... hot and out of the oven! I did find the dough a little difficult to deal with. You really need to work fast once you put the butter on so it doesn't soak in too much. Otherwise the dough turns really wet. I got the pans 3 for a dollar with lids at the Dollar Store.

Lawd knows I don't need 7 pans of noncaloric Cinnamon Rolls. So, tomorrow I am giving some to the preschool teachers.

I am linking this to the wonderful Lynne at Happier Than A Pig In Mud's Celebrity Cookoff. This month she is, of course, doing the Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond.

Come on and see what everyone else is cooking!

Ummm...these look good but think I'll cut the recipe in half when I make them. I would still have enuf to freeze for later, right?
They sure do look good. :))

I don't know you but you are terrific. This recipe is a lot to bite off. I'm sure your friends will be so glad you jumped right in!

I have learned through years of trial and error to divide the dough and work with small batches. You can also make the rolls and then freeze them before the final rise. Congrats on lots of great looking rolls!

These do look good but I think I'll make a quarter recipe! Too many of these goodies is a bad thing around me! No resistance! Thanks for finding this recipe for us. Linda

I just knew I should have been a preschool teacher instead of a stay at home mom! Those look amazing! Good thing you had helpers. Now you know I can't show this to my family because they think cinn. rolls only come from a tube! LOL
o.k. I fess up, I do make sticky rolls out of frozen bread dough for the holidays, does that count as homemade?
Have a great weekend! xoxo
