We are anticipating a winter storm in Charlotte this week. They say four to eight inches of snow; I know for some of you that is the norm but we can’t handle it here. The city just doesn’t have the equipment to keep things safe and clear. School will likely be closed which will be super fun for one day. It isn’t so fun the next two or three.
Maybe it won’t happen this way but I like to be prepared either way.
No snow day is complete without cinnamon rolls. I like to make them the day before, refrigerate the uncooked rolls overnight, and let them rise in the morning before baking. They can also be frozen after they are baked in which case I thaw them in the fridge overnight and reheat at 250.
I have a bread machine that my sister gave me years ago. I love it and use it for this recipe. However, I’ve also included another version for those of you without a bread machine.

The first time I made these cinnamon rolls (years ago!) I had zero experience baking bread or dealing with rising dough. There is a little bit of a learning curve but I haven’t had a bad batch yet. I’ve had a couple that didn’t rise or one or two that didn’t look right, but when it came down to it they were yummy.
No, Reid cannot eat these but I’ve gotten to where I can fake him a roll with vegan croissant dough, cinnamon and icing and he isn’t old enough to know the difference.
Are you a glutton for a good cinnamon roll?
