Overnight cinnamon rolls are easy to prepare for the mornings you want a special breakfast. Prepare them the night before and let them rise in the refrigerator while you sleep. The next morning you bake them and enjoy them!
Do you have a favorite recipe to make for Christmas morning?
Many years ago I made homemade cinnamon rolls for our breakfast on Christmas morning every year. I had this great recipe where you put the rolls together on Christmas Eve and then the rolls would rise overnight in the refrigerator. On Christmas morning, I would take the risen rolls out of the refrigerator and pop them into the oven and we would have these amazing cinnamon rolls for breakfast. And then we moved.
Need I say anymore? This was BEFORE computers and before everyone had the internet in their home. My recipe was clipped from a magazine and I lost it. Over the years I tried a few other overnight cinnamon roll recipes and have searched online but have not been able to find a recipe that came close to the one I used when my children were really little. This year I went on a search and found a recipe that came really close.
Brush the melted butter on top of the dough and spread the brown sugar/cinnamon mixture on top. Begin to roll the dough up.
Place the cinnamon rolls in a greased 9 X 13 baking dish, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes...
Let cool for about 15 minutes before spreading your glaze on top.
This was a fabulous recipe! I will definitely be making these rolls again!
