When I was in high school I had to get up really early for seminary, and then school. I ran track and cross country, so I would have practice after school. When I would get home, I’d be dead to the world tired. Like. Every. Day. I swear I went to bed by like 9 every night. Unless I was AOL chatting (Who remembers AIM? Raise your hands!) with a boy! Then fatigue did not matter.
I now make up for all those early mornings and nights by sleeping in as much as I possibly can. And I rarely go to bed before midnight. I need some time without little people who rule my life, so I get that by staying up late. This makes me a fairly grouchy mommy in the mornings because let’s face it, the kids do not care at all what time I went to bed, when they are hungry, they are hungry.
My favorite cinnamon rolls to make are these Easy Overnight Rolls because…well they are easy peazy, and you make them overnight. But from time to time I like to indulge and spend a little longer making “fancy” cinnamon rolls. And these are well worth the effort. I think they may be my new favorite.
I was on FB and found a lovely Cinnabon Copy Cat Recipe from Lauren’s Latest, where she found their list of ingredients and tested and tested to recreate their famous cinnamon rolls. They are amazing, but because I can’t leave any recipe alone, I played with it some. But mostly I just added cookie butter, lots of it. I’m obsessed with the stuff, so I like adding it to anything and everything I can. But feel free to visit Lauren’s Latest for her recipe which is a traditional cinnamon roll and glaze.
These cinnamon rolls are amazing, and ridiculously tasty, although very sticky, so trust me when I say you do not want to bake without this awesome baking mat!
Have you ever seen these Non-Stick Silicone Baking Mats? They are food-grade silicone, and they sit in the bottom of your baking tray. And they keep it nice and clean, and the food does not stick to them. With something like a sticky bun, or cookies, this is perfect! It is FDA approved, BPA free, and totally reusable.
What I love
Easy to use
- It has custom designed fitting corners so that it will fit perfectly into a 13″x8″ pan.
- Toaster oven and Freezer safe
- Great for cookies, macarons and pastry sheets.
- Certified FDA Approved
Easy to clean
- The non-stick surface means you don’t have to scrub, everything cleans off easily. You just rinse it off, let it dry, roll it up to put it away. My kitchen has a lot of stuff in it, so I love how small it is for storing.
No extra oil
- It doesn’t require any grease or oil, so you can get rid of the extra fat or shortenings
What I Don’t Like
That I can’t put it in my dishwasher. But that is because I am lazy.
In all truth there is not a thing I don’t like about the mat itself. I have used it several times now, and have had no problem. It is very easy to clean, I just wish I could toss it in with the rest. It works great, fits my cookie sheets perfectly, has nice little round spots to show how to space things, as well as a measuring tool on the side. I only wish I had gotten one sooner.
