ABC Overnight Cinnamon Rolls

Can I blame the KOA for failed cinnamon rolls? Well...probably not. I did plan to pop them right in the oven at the correct time: however, 2 hours later, I returned and didn't know what to do with my over sized and over-raised rolls. I cooked them and the smell was wonderful but the texture was that of over-raised ruined rolls.

Which was really sad because I was trying an experiment-2 pans: 1 pressed flat after rolling and the other left as is. I once heard that smashing them flat before the second raise was the secret to great rolls. Now, I will have to try this recipe again.

I will try again. I love the idea of overnight anything.

They look like they could be good. And I give you full permission to blame KOA. I do it all the time :)

If you hadn't said anything, I wouldn't have known they had overrisen. They look lovely. We loved them. I made another batch yesterday. This time I filled them with the lemon/orange paste recipe from the Pull Apart Coffee Cake (don't remember if you made that recipe from this book or not). Yum!!

They look delicious. I just had to make my own cake strips. I didn't pack mine when I moved to Poland. I think I have you to thank for knowing that trick!
