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 overnight 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.
Overnight Cinnamon Rolls Recipe
Brush the melted butter on top of the dough and spread the brown sugar/cinnamon mixture on top. Beginning at one end, start rolling the dough up to form one long roll.
Place the cinnamon rolls in a greased 9 X 13 baking dish, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. The next morning, take the baking dish out of the refrigerator and allow the rolls to sit on the counter for about an hour. You want the cinnamon rolls to come to room temperature before baking. They will even begin to rise a bit more.
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes and then let cool for about 15 minutes before spreading your glaze on top. If you spread the glaze too soon, it will melt and not be the proper consistency.
This was a fabulous recipe! I will definitely be making these rolls again!
