These homemade cinnamon rolls were a family favorite that mom used to bake for most holidays, along with kolache and rolache. (No idea of the proper spelling on that one – same dough as kolache, but rolled up into a crescent, brushed with egg wash and sprinkled with salt and poppy seed). Later she also added Hungarian rolls. Christmas time would have Polish tea rings. I bake less than mom did (trying to avoid so much white sugar and white flour), but special occasions call for special recipes and memories of family traditions. Sometimes I make these as Caramel-Pecan Cinnamon Rolls, with a caramel sauce baked in the bottom of the pan, usually I just make them with icing because my boys like them better that way.
This recipe is featured in my book, “Never Buy Bread Again – 20+ Homemade Bread Recipes“, along with many other wonderful baked goods.
