Snow Day…Cinnamon Rolls

So this is what I woke up to this morning…a wonderful winter wonderland! 

I made Pioneer Woman’s Chicken ‘n Dumplins last night, so I’ll be having those again for lunch AND dinner tonight…SO YUMMY!…in this kind of weather I can’t help but cook SOMETHING, so cinnamon rolls it was this morning.  I do have 4, patient for their age, but not patient enough for made-from-scratch children…who, this snowy morning, were crazy excited to go out to play!  I popped open a can…but not a can of pre-made cinnamon rolls…these are WAY better!

The players:

Yep, crescent rolls!  Flakey & delicious :)  I used to be able to find the ‘crescent creations’ that saved me the step of pressing those seams together…so if you can find them, get ’em!  I unroll & press the seams together on a sheet of waxed paper (can’t live without this stuff!).  I spread some softened butter all over before I sprinkle heavily with brown sugar, light or dark…doesn’t matter.

and spread around…

now, sprinkle with cinnamon…alot or a little…whatever you’re feeling…

now sprinkle with chocolate chips…I like semi-sweet mini chips…I also added some toasted pecans to this batch…

YUMMMMM!  Now you’re gonna roll ’em up…roll ’em up…

At this point, I like to stick ’em in the freezer for a few…makes slicing much easier.  When you’re ready, unroll & start slicing…I get 6 out of one can of crescents…I start with a slice in the middle…

Then make three on either side of the middle slice…

And throw ’em in the pan, er…buttered dish :)

Then bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes…I brushed mine with melted butter after 15ish :)

So warm, gooey & delicious…and EASY!  Yummy enough that they need no icing (unless you really wanna make some, surely it wouldn’t hurt…the natives were getting restless here 😉 )

And once the boys went out to play in the snow…a quiet cup of coffee (reheated, of course) and a couple of those pecan filled cinnamon rolls…I’m in my own little wonderland!

Today’s secret revealed…the media coverage of this storm got me a little anxious…I haven’t had to worry about this in nearly a decade…I went crazy stocking up on food, so we should be good for a week or two LOL…I should be used to this by next winter :)  Happy Snow Day!

    • LOL…I keep saying “if I had a cooking show, it would be called Cooking In Chaos” :)

      You’ll either LOVE me ’cause they’re so good…or you’ll HATE me for the same reason :) Not exactly on my diet plan…
