Cinnamon Rolls

Jump to recipe

I originally made cinnamon rolls back in so-cal, it was a bit of work, made a ton, and was a fun to do but not again.

Then I discovered apple butter and went do the path again, made my neighbor see jesus and really wasn’t as hard as I had remembered.

The recent years, the apple trees in the neighborhood have hit a rough patch and not produced, generally due to weather issues. Hail is not a budding apple or really any fruit tree’s friend.

As my neighbors’ birthday came around, I realized i needed to make her favorite cinnamon rolls, but didn’t have any apple butter. I knew I had made this without before and could do it again. I went to my trusty Better Homes New Cookbook and looked up what changes I should make to make it perfect for my dear neighbor.


Delicious! Too tasty, don’t do it! (jk)

Option: hubby doesn’t like cream cheese frosting, so he made some other drizzle.

Combine 1 cup of powdered sugar and 1 tbl milk. Stir until the consistency you like, drizzle on your roll!

The frosting portion of the recipe makes a ton. I tend to send my treats out with a side of frosting so people can make their own decisions.

Pro tip: if your milk is too hot it will kill the yeast and nothing you do will make them rise.

Depending on the age of your yeast, you might have to let it take it’s time rising, or perhaps being at altitude or not will affect your timing for rising.

If you try this, let me know what you think!
