One Hour Cinnamon Rolls

My boys and I love to bake for the neighbors and family.  My youngest son is only 8 years old, but he hates to make cookies.  He would rather spend his time in the kitchen making rolls.  Last year, he perfected the Pecan Rolls So Easy A 7 Year Old Can Make Them. This summer he made the pecan rolls along with these yummy 1 Hour Cinnamon Rolls for the fair and got a Grand Champion ribbon on a basket with the 2 of them.

I found the recipe in the Oklahoma Wheat Commission cookbook. It is full of great recipes just like the one from Kansas that I love. I love it so much that I am giving away copies of the Oklahoma Wheat Commission cookbook.  Leave a comment with you favorite food gift item that you like to give or receive and I will have the boys pick 5 winners.

Making goodies for friends and family is so much fun and I like these rolls because they can have them for Christmas morning breakfast. In the past we have made Christmas Snickerdoodles, 2 Cheese Braided Wheat Bread, Easy 5 Minute Microwave FudgePecan Praline Crunch, 30 Minute Oatmeal Pecan Squares, Hello Dolly Bars, Cherry Cheese Pie, Pecan Pie Cheesecake, Cinnamon Roll Muffins, Cream Cheese Christmas Snickerdoodles and Nut Free No Bake Cookies
