OK-- One of my FAVORITE Blogs to get recipes from is
The Pioneer Woman
These Cinnamon Rolls are WONDERFUL!!!
Austin even refers to them as
Pioneer Cinnamon Rolls!
He likes them.... A LOT!!!
It makes a big recipe, which is nice if you want to make and freeze,
or make and give...or make and sit down and eat all at once...
As I read down through the comments,
someone had taken the time
to half the recipe...that is usually what I fix...
so I don't sit down and eat the all by myself.
I am posting both versions,
so I don't have to go back through the comment section of her
original post every time...
the half recipe also has a different frosting recipe
in case you are not a Maple flavoring and coffee kind of person...
