Amazingly LAZY Cinnamon Rolls

Amazingly LAZY Cinnamon Rolls

Sorry, I didn't snap a picture before it was all eaten up. :-p  It was that GOOD!  And soooo easy to make!

Yesterday afternoon, I put a few frozen rolls to rise in a round cake pan, expecting to use 'em for dinner.  We ended up having chicken tacos for dinner, so I put 'em in the fridge to finish rising overnight.  This morning, I dressed 'em up with melted butter, sugar, and cinnamon and simply baked 'em.  Made a little glaze with the leftover melted butter, powdered sugar, and cinnamon.

This is pretty much a "non-recipe" where I didn't really measure anything.

I used:

6 frozen rolls (I used Rhodes brand but I'm sure any brand will be fine)
1/2 stick butter, melted
powdered sugar (about 1/3 cup)

Let the frozen rolls rise according to directions on the bag.  

When ready to bake, preheat oven according to the directions (I preheated mine to 350F).  While oven is preheating, melt the butter.  Brush butter liberally over the rolls.  Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon over the rolls to taste.  I sprinkled a lot of sugar and cinnamon and it turned out so yummy.  Bake according to directions (I baked mine for 20 minutes).

While the rolls are baking, mix powdered sugar with a few teaspoons of the leftover melted butter (keep adding a teaspoon until you get the desired consistency).  Add cinnamon (about a teaspoon or so) to the powdered sugar mixture.  Spread on hot rolls when they come out of the oven.


I'm sure you could feed a crowd if you used a 9x13 pan and several rolls to fit in that pan.  Less work too!
