Grandma's Cinnamon Rolls - Recipe

My baking streak continues.

When one of these strikes watch out!

The boys have been asking for cinnamon buns for a few weeks now and I was in the mood today to make them.

I found the one recipe that I have but it takes about two hours before you can even think of putting them in the oven to bake.

Yeah, I wanted to bake but not have it take up my whole day.

So… off I went in search of a good cinnamon bun recipe to try on Recipezaar.

I shared four with the boys and they decided on the one we tried today.

Now, my helpers bailed out one me.

You see they found a show about the best roller coasters that they just had to watch.


Anyway, the recipe from Recipezaar states salt in the fourth ingredient but there is no salt listed. I figured that it should be the baking soda that is added at this stage and so that is what I did.

I did not use the icing recipe that was provided but one that I had on hand from my mom.

The recipe was quite easy to make and the end results were outstanding!
