12 Days of Christmas - Day 8

Cinnamon Rolls....yum!
If your house is anything like mine on Christmas morning, you will not want to think about making a big breakfast in between gift openings and toy assembly. You might miss something! But then again, I don't want to have the same old bowl of Cheerios on Christmas morning. I also am NOT running to the store AGAIN!!! The answer is planning ahead. ...and now you're thinking, "Sure, but I don't have time to make anything now either!" Relax... this will only take 5 minutes. I promise. We'll be "cheating" the semi-homemade way.

Here's what you need:
One loaf thawed bread dough
4 tbsp melted butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup nuts or raisins
2 tsp cinnamon
Vanilla frosting

The directions for these Cinnamon Rolls are on the back of the Bridgeford frozen bread package or right here. First, start with a pound of white bread dough. You find this in the freezer section and its already pre-made. Earlier in the day, or the night before, thaw out a loaf. Make it up according to the directions and put it in the freezer. Christmas Eve morning move it to the fridge. By Christmas morning it should have thawed and risen. Then bake them according to the package. It also has frosting directions on it but please.... just do yourself a favor and buy some. Then enjoy your Christmas morning with one less thing to worry about. Oh, by athe way... these also make great gifts!
