In the kitchen, I adhere to a few very simple rules. You can never use too much sugar. You can never incorporate too many sticks of butter. And never forget to share.
Because a pair of wonderful, beloved house guests will bestow us with their presence this weekend, I wanted to be sure and have some goodies on hand for snacks and breakfasts. The domestic goddess, The Pioneer Woman, had recently re-posted her incredible cinnamon roll recipe, which I had never attempted, so I thought I would give it a try. And I am sure glad that I did. It is a giant recipe that makes five pans of rolls. I put the mixed dough into my fridge late Monday night expecting to finish crafting the rolls the next day. However, when I checked on the dough right before jumping into bed that night, I found it overflowing all over my newly cleaned fridge. So Husband and I stayed up until midnight rolling and cutting and putting them into pans and then the freezer. True love.
I baked the rolls last night, and after disseminating the treats to both sets of parents and a set of hip, fabulous neighbors, I still have two pans (about 14 rolls) left to shower upon my guests, launching them into certain diabetic comas.
It's called hospitality.
You should make these cinnamon rolls today.
