I was excited to make these rolls. It's originally from Alton Brown and I like his simple, minimal-effort, yummy recipes. I have been planning on making them since November. I originally wanted to serve them for breakfast on Thanksgiving, but with all the other cooking I was doing, these got pushed aside. The recipe has been sitting on the kitchen counter ever since, just calling out to be made. Finally, made them. All I have to say is wow. These are beyond incredible. So much better than Cinnabon, because they aren’t as sugary and they don’t give you an instant cavity.
It’s nice to be able to control the amount of sweetness. I added walnuts for additional fat, omega 3s, and slight crunch. Mr. Surly approved as well. He also liked that they weren’t too sugary-sweet and you could put as much (or as little) icing on as desired. I will definitely be making these again. It wasn’t a lot of work, just be sure to plan ahead to give the rolls time to rise overnight.
