I always says that cinnamon rolls are a “special occasion” food. But, in truth, we make these pretty often. I do always try to stick to the “special occasion” rule, but it just turns out that there are way more special occasions throughout the year than I ever knew about!
Aside from the 50 other times a year I bust out this recipe, we especially enjoy these on New Year’s Eve.
Chris and I don’t have very many holiday traditions that we can call all our own. We always spend Thanksgiving and Christmas at one set of parents’ or the other, and we usually just go with whatever longstanding holiday traditions that particular family does.
But New Year’s Eve is ours.
The tradition is pretty simple. We start making the cinnamon rolls around 10:30ish, pop in a Meg Ryan + Tom Hanks movie, and eat the cinnamon rolls warm and gooey right around midnight.
It’s not really that big of a deal, but I love it. It’s warm and cozy, and I look forward to it every year.
Annnnnnnnnd they usually make an appearance around Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, my birthday, General Conference, for overnight guests, and on any day of the year that requires an especially serious dose of sugar, carbs, and ooey gooey…
Anyway. These are a true staple in our home. I could eat them again, and again, and again… and I often do ;) .
