Cinnamon Roll Love

Lately I can't get enough of the Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond.  I love her blog. I love her show and I LOVE her recipe for cinnamon rolls.  I was flipping through her first cookbook The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Recipes from an Accidental Country Girl, and her "most treasured recipe" looked sooo good I just had to make them.
I've tried before to make cinnamon rolls from scratch and they always came out kind of hard and too bready so I was a little nervous that they wouldn't come out as dreamy as she said they were.  I followed her recipe exactly and found helpful tips on her blog as well.
They came out better than I could have hoped for and were dangerously addictive and pure heaven.
You have GOT to bake these...like right now.

Here is my dough all rolled out and ready


Spread with melted butter, sugar and cinnamon 


These are the rolls after they were left to rise again for about 20mins

in the oven.  the smell was amazing!!

Just out of the oven and bathed in gooey icing


so good :)

One of my favourite books right now!
