10 Sticky Sweet Cinnamon Rolls for a Decadent Start to the Day
If anything could get us out of bed in the morning, it’s the sweet aroma of warm cinnamon rolls wafting through the house. It’s always comforting waking up to a delicious breakfast, but making homemade cinnamon rolls can often feel overwhelming when you're just rolling out of bed. Visions of kneading, rolling, and waiting on the rich, buttery dough to rise might be a bit too much to consider before your fist cup of coffee. Luckily, these cinnamon roll recipes are anything but complicated. Some can be made in advance, others use refrigerated dough to cut down on prep time. To mix things up, some even get creative by adding flavors from some of your family's favorite desserts, like carrot cake and apple pie. From spiced morning cinnamon casseroles to sticky sweet rolls, we’ll take a side of these cinnamon beauties with our morning coffee, please. You’ll find it easy to whip up a batch of these soft, fluffy, glazed-covered swirls.
