Ginormous Cinnamon Roll – Easy, Impressive and Beyond Delicious!

I’m revisiting one of our family’s favorite annual traditions – the making of our Giant Cinnamon Roll for the holiday season!

It’s so easy, really. If you can make dough “snakes” from packaged bread dough, dip them in butter and them sprinkle them with cinnamon sugar and wind it up in a spiral, you’ve just made a ginormous cinnamon roll. And the best part – it can rise in the fridge overnight and everyone wakes up in the morning to this glorious fragrance of warm cinnamon and fresh baked bread as the day begins.

What makes this recipe so much fun is this is a great family project and kids LOVE getting involved. In fact, when my boys were little they used to watch me make it, then they helped when they were bigger and now grown and on their own they’ll come home for the holidays and make it together and now I watch! I know it will always be a tradition they will share with their own families when the time comes. This makes me very happy. It just does.

As you can see the finished cinnamon roll is pretty impressive which is kind of the point. It’s unexpected and knocks socks off of any holiday guests that might be visiting.  Of course, it goes without saying but I’ll say it anyway, it tastes  unbelievably good. Beyond good. Caramel-ly juicy lick your fingers kind of good and who doesn’t love that?

I’d love to hear if you’re making it for the first time or you’ve made it before. I know a lot of you have and like always, I love sharing the baking love so you can experience a bite of heaven too and make it your own family tradition.

Wishing you all a very happy and healthy New Year. Thank you for visiting me today.
