Rocket Science Scale: 1 – Easy Peasy
When I think of Christmas, my mind jumps to Christmas morning. The tree up with presents surrounding it. The thought of ten trillion presents from Santa sitting around that tree. Getting up at 6 am to open said presents.
Yes I did say 6 AM. Even crazier, my sisters and I would wake up around 12/1 AM to just look at the presents. We would sneak downstairs with flashlights and just look at the size of the boxes. That tradition has now passed on to my youngest sister and brother. (We have pushed the 6 AM present time to 7 AM. Oh the signs of growing up).
So while my siblings and I would look through the stockings and begin sorting the presents into corners, my parents would make a cup of coffee. About a half hour later, all the presents would be open and we’d be off playing while my parents made breakfast. And by the time breakfast would be ready, we had all burned through at least that first toy.
I think this recipe would be a sweet bite to have ready while opening presents. Maybe turn that half hour sprint into an hour. At least in a house with older kids, who no longer want to rush the Christmas morning experience.
These cinnamon rolls can be ready in 8 – 10 minutes. They are the perfect bite of sugar in the morning. Plus, I’ve included some coffee in the icing to wake you up. For those 6 AM christmas mornings. The recipe is adapted from Iowa Girl Eats. I will also be sharing some tips on how to mass produce them since I made about 80 of them for my office (we have a December Goodies celebration and I wanted to make sure everyone got at least two).
