If you guys have never tried making a homemade cinnamon rolls recipe with a simple sweet dough (brioche style) instead of regular bread dough, you are totally missing out. These are the FLUFFIEST homemade cinnamon rolls of your life, I promise! They are very easy, and you can make them overnight!
The other day Truman and I stopped by the grocery store on the way home from kindergarten pick up. He found a toy that he wanted, and I said no, and then the world exploded. 0-to-60 meltdown. At one point he screamed, “But Mom, Christmas is about GIVING!” I just about died laughing at that one, but then he quickly followed it up with, “And besides, I’M HUNGRY!!”
You know what, I have to give serious props to this 5-year-old-kid for being able to identify the root cause of his tantrum. I never realize I’m hangry until after I’ve eaten something.
Speaking of hangry…I have been on a MISSION my friends. A cinnamon roll mission. It’s serious business, finding a cinnamon roll that is so soft and fluffy and absolutely perfect that it will make you want to cry tears of joy.
(First thing I had to google when I decided on the title of this post: fluffiest cinnamon rolls, or most fluffy?? Don’t judge me!! Haha!)
I am a little picky about cinnamon rolls. Okay, a lot picky. I used to accept any and all cinnamon rolls that came my way, but lately I’ve just been a little underwhelmed with the cinnamon rolls in my life. (“I know you can be overwhelmed, and I know you can be underwhelmed, but can you ever just be…whelmed?” “I think you can in Europe!” (Name that movie!)
