Okay…another super mom moment here. Yeah…how cool to get cinnamon rolls ready quickly?! Even if you don’t want to use it during the school week-use it on the weekend when you want those kids up and doing chores!
So I showed you how you before how you can create your own three month food storage by freezing any dough or roll (like Rhode’s rolls) which makes making any bread super fast. However, there are times when you run out of those and you’d still like…say…cinnamon rolls! These cinnamon rolls are done and baked in 45 minutes or less! In fact, when I make cinnamon rolls-these are what I make now. I double the recipe, bake a few and freeze the rest for later use. It’s perfect! You’ll also notice that this recipe calls for chopped nuts rolled up in the cinnamon rolls-I never thought of adding them but really chopped pecans pushes this recipe over the top and makes it entirely impressive and different. Try it, you’ll like it!
