Sin Rolls. That's what I made for breakfast one day this past weekend. I wanted something a little different than our standard weekend fare of eggs. The eggs are always terrific. I just wanted a little variety.
I don't go to the mall often but when I do I try to avoid the Cinnabon (Sin-a-bon?) store. The smell calls to me like a siren. It is futile to resist. Let me tell ya: these cinnamon rolls are just as delicious (perhaps more) and much, much cheaper.
They're called "Quick Cinnamon Rolls." I guess quick is a relative term. Quicker than what? Opening a can of refrigerated cinnamon rolls and baking? No. But better. Way better. These may seem to be a little bit of a pain in the buns but they really are worth it.
My worst problem was rolling these bad boys then cutting them. I had a couple of small tears in the dough and they didn't look too pretty once I got them in the pan. I was a little upset but when they baked up you could not tell there had been a problem at all.
This must-try recipe comes to you from America's Test Kitchens so you know it's good.
I served these with cantaloupe and they kept us full for a long time.

Instead of me typing the entire recipe here, I'm going to give you a link to another blog. They have step by step pictures which makes it nice.
Things are busy over here at the Happy Texan household. We're getting ready for a camping trip. I'm getting the clothes ready and making a list (and checking it twice). I also have to plan a menu. Thursday night will be something quick (hot dogs?), Friday chicken and corn, Saturday steak and potatoes. Sunday come home. I can.not.wait. for this trip. Sitting around a campfire with the crickets chirping is hard to beat. Of course, the roar of the air conditioner in the trailer at night isn't too bad either. :) Roughing it. LOL
