Traditions

A couple of years ago I decided to start a Tradition. Twice a year me and the family would make cinnamon rolls to deliver around the neighborhood for people to eat while they watched General Conference. The first time I did this was also the first time I had ever made Cinnamon Rolls and I was a bit nervous. But I found a super easy and yummy recipe ( from my neighbor Tenille) and I did it all by myself!


Rolling it out to just the right thickness
Adding just the right amount of cinnamon sugar and brown sugar ( for me less is more)
Rolling it up and cutting them out

I always get so excited when I see that they raised.

The frosting is the best and I could just eat these up!

My kids love doing this as well- they have so much fun spreading out the cinnamon and sugar. Our favorite part is passing them out to the neighbors and seeing how excited they are for the goodies!

Cinnamon Rolls


1 can evaporated milk

4 cups hot tap water

1 cup sugar

1 egg

1/2 cup oil

1/2 cup potato flakes

3 Tbs. yeast

2 Tb. salt

12-13 cups flour


*Mix all ingredients until it pulls away from sides. ( now I get nervous every time I read this so I mix the wet ingredients first, then add dry ) Then mix for 6 minutes. The let it rest for 10 minutes. Divide dough in half or into thirds, depending on how big of cinnamon rolls you want. Roll out dough onto floured surface. Cover with melted butter. Sprinkle with a cinnamon/sugar mixture. Then sprinkle with brown sugar. Roll up tight and cut with string or floss. Put them on pan and let rise until doubled in size. Bake for 350 for 20 minutes, depending on how big they are. Frost with buttercream frosting.


Buttercream frosting

2 cubes butter, softened at room temp.

2 boxes powdered sugar

dash of salt

2 tsp. vanilla

enough milk to make it spreadable


*this frosting is unbelievably good
