Being relatively newly-weds with a toddler, my husband and I want to begin our own family traditions at holidays. One was to have a nice, homecooked breakfast each Christmas morning. I want to have the same thing, each Christmas morning. I chose Alton Brown’s overnight cinnamon rolls, since I can do most of the work the night before and just pop it into the oven while gifts are being opened. Also, my husband and I are BIG fans of Alton’s. I even tried REALLY hard to win an autographed copy of one of his cookbooks for my husband’s birthday. Unfortunately, I didn’t win.
Overall, I was pleased with this recipe. I’m new to the world of yeast, really so I think maybe that had something to do with my only complaint – that it seemed a little chewy. I also didn’t let my cream cheese soften enough, so the icing was lumpy. I’ll perfect it next year!
Since I followed his recipe exactly, I’ll just provide you with the link:
And a picture of mine!
