Yeah, you heard me.
You're not going to believe these. And you're really not going to
believe how ridiculously easy they are to make. My nine-month old could
You need two ingredients:
2. Cinnamon rolls. I swear by these "Grands" Cinnabon doodleybobs.
Of course, if you're feeling ambitious, you could always make your
own. But if you're exhausted, have been picking up Cheerios off the
floor for two months, and have no energy to shower let alone make your own
dang cinnamon rolls, stick with me.
First, fry up that bacon. Not all the way--give it sort of a half-fry. You
don't want to make it too crunchy because it'll snap when you try to roll
it up into those cinnamonny buns. Plus, it'll cook more in le oven.
Let it drain on paper towels. For big cinnamon rolls, you'll need two
slices of bacon per roll. For the tiny guys, you just need one.
Pop that can. How I looove that sound. Separate the rolls.
Unroll them on a piece of parchment paper or a big ol' cutting board.
Lay the bacon strips across the dough....
...roll 'em up...
...lay them in a greased pan and bake according to package directions.
Sit by the oven and twiddle your thumbs.
Ding! They're done!
I think these things have to qualify as a religious experience. Someone
call the Vatican.
And it's a crime how easy they are to make. Something this good you should
have to work for, right?
Make these Christmas morning. Thank me later.
Happy 6th Day of Bakemas!
