One of my absolute favorite Christmas recipes is the Pioneer Woman’s Cinnamon Rolls. Homemade cinnamon rolls have a very special place in our family. My Aunt Kim, who was a wonderful baker, brought homemade cinnamon rolls with thick cream cheese frosting to our Christmas morning brunch every year. I have sweet memories of her bustling in late with steaming pans of cinnamon rolls because the rolls had taken too long to rise. She passed away suddenly a few years ago, and when I read the Pioneer Woman’s post, I knew I wanted to start a new tradition of making cinnamon rolls and sharing them at our Christmas brunch as well as with friends and neighbors.
Last year was the third year in a row I made massive amounts of cinnamon rolls, in fact I tripled the Pioneer Woman recipe. I start the process four days before Christmas and have the rolls baked and ready for delivery on Christmas Eve morning. Last year, I bought pretty, disposable paper cake pans, and used cellophane and ribbon to make a lovely presentation. My husband and my son get to play Santa, and deliver them to our friends doorsteps. Everyone is thrilled!
Thank you Adrianne for including me and my picks in your post. Even though our weather will be over 100 degrees today, I am definitely in the Christmas spirit after looking at all these beautiful recipes!
