Cinnamon Roll Heaven

It took the better part of the night, but our cinnamon rolls are done! We made the single batch with the recipe from the Paula Deen cooking site. With my low carb high protein diet, I can not sample the wares. However the men in the home approve :) The recipe said it made 12, but if we had made just 12 the things would have been ginormous! Seriously too big for a little guy, or even a big guy like diggity dog to eat one. We wound up with 18 total. Here it is!

Our ball of dough, after it had risen

 Rolled out flat
 Waiting patiently to help!
 Buttered with cinnamon and nuts added
 Brown sugar on top!
 Rolling our rolls
 Its a snake! No its just our cinnamon ROLL
 Cutting our rolls off the roll... with dental floss
 Before baking!
 Small tray almost done!
 Oh what a yummy smell!
 First attempt at drizzling topping.. I didnt find it to be thick enough with 4 cups of powdered sugar, 1 cup of milk and 4 ounces of butter... so I added 2 cups of powdered sugar. Worked much better!
 Rolls on the table!
 If you get really close to the screen you might be able to smell them :)
 Another perfect project!
