Cinnamon Rolls

For some really yummy cinnamon rolls:

and this frosting:

Caramel Glaze

1/3 Cup evaporated milk
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 1/2 Cups powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla

In a small pot over medium heat, mix the evaporated milk with the brown sugar, stirring constantly, until the mixture starts to boil. Remove from heat. Add in powdered sugar and vanilla and mix with some sort of electric mixer until creamy, about 2 minutes. Pour over cinnamon rolls. 

If you want enough frosting to cover ALL the cinnamon rolls from The Pioneer Woman, triple the batch. 

I really like The Pioneer Woman's dough. They turn out great and I can freeze a bunch of pans before letting them rise. (When you want cinnamon rolls, take the pan out of the freezer and set on your counter. As the dough defrosts, they will rise.) I just don't like her glaze much. 

Unfortunately, there are no pictures at this time. As soon as I make some more I will try to remember to take a picture before we devour them. 


  1. Love freezer cinnamon rolls. They make an easy breakfast :)

  2. I love your recipes. I just forget to go back to where I saw them and make the stuff.
