My entire family is OBSESSED with Cinnamon Rolls. It’s probably because my mom has been making them for as long as I can remember. Recently, she decided to try a new version and wanted to make a 1 Hour Cinnamon Roll recipe. She did some research and decided that the recipe from Your Homebased Mom looked the best. I assured her that anything from Leigh Anne would be phenomenal. She tried it out while we were there visiting for the holidays and the ENTIRE family LOVED the recipe. The rolls were soft and sweet and tasted just as good as her regular version. BUT, they were made in an hour! How awesome is that?! Can’t beat having delicious and EASY cinnamon rolls that can made in an hour. 😉
We did change a few things up and added a little more butter and sugar (can’t go wrong with more butter and sugar, right?!) We also added some cream cheese to the frosting and baked at a lower heat for more time. The result was amazing and you better believe we’ll be making these again!
Begin by mixing together water, buttermilk, sugar, melted butter and yeast. Allow to sit for 15 minutes.
Then, roll dough out on a floured service, into a 12 x 16 inch square. Top with filling.
Cut and place on baking tray.
Have you ever looked at a food picture and just WISH you had one in front of you – in real life?! I’m SO excited to make these again here in Texas, but it will be hard not to eat the whole pan by myself. Seriously. You guys – these are DELICIOUS! I know you’ll love them. ;D

Recipe adapted from Your Homebased Mom.
- We made this to have a gooey filling, if you want it less gooey, change brown sugar and sugar to 1/2 cup each.
- All-purpose flour can also be used but bread flour is best (makes it softer).
- This also makes a lot of frosting – we’d rather have a little too much than not enough, but if you like less you can change amounts to: 1/3 cup butter, 2 cups powdered sugar, 3 oz. cream cheese, 1 teaspoon vanilla and milk. 😉
