My Mom's Famous Cinnamon Rolls Recipe
Nothing says fall like my a warm batch of my mom's famous cinnamon rolls fresh out of the oven. Soft, doughy, cinnamon goodness. The only problem is you'll want to eat them all in a very short amount of time. I only made half the recipe last time and it still made about two dozen rolls!
The hardest step in this recipe is waiting for the dough and rolls to rise. Be patient and, trust me, it will be well worth the wait. There's also a secret ingredient that might have you feeling really hesitant. So I'll just tell you what it is right now. It's potatoes. Yeah, you read that right. This recipe calls for instant or mashed potatoes. I always use instant potato flakes, and they turn out amazing every time.
My mom always makes half the batch with vanilla frosting and the other half with maple frosting. Both are TO DIE FOR. So the next time you're feeling like cozying up on the couch with a special treat in the oven, make it these cinnamon rolls. You won't regret it.
