Overnight Cinnamon Rolls

Do you want to make a special breakfast for your family? You can easily make homemade cinnamon rolls that are fluffy, soft, and loaded with cinnamon brown sugar filling.

You make the dough the night before and let it develop wonderful flavor in the refrigerator overnight.

In the morning you roll out the dough then spread butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon on it.

Then roll up the dough, slice it, and bake until golden brown.

Enjoy plain or topped with cinnamon roll frosting.

This recipe is from my grandmother, Ethel Eynard. Jefferson City, MO. 1964.
