We have always used the pioneer woman's recipe...the one from her website which I'm sure is the same that is in her book. They are sooo good and really easy to make as you don't have to knead the dough! We make them for all our holiday breakfasts!

I'm a newbie...I've been reading your posts for about a week but decided to say hi. :)
I just bought PW's cookbook a few weeks ago and this was the first recipe that caught my eye! Cooking is not my top rated talent but her book is laid out so simply that I think even I can make it turn out okay. :)

I LOVE THE PIONEER WOMAN!!! I made these with my cousin for our family during Thanksgiving and they were an absolute hit!!! We added our own personal touches cousin and I LOVE sweets, so we added more brown and white sugar in the filling and then also added this divinely delicious option: Before you put the rolls in the pan, melt enough butter to cover the bottom and then generously sprinkle brown sugar over the butter. It creates a marvelous crunchy, sweet glaze on the bottom of the rolls! Talk about heavenly!!! (that was a tip from the best cinnamon roll maker in the friend Tommi!!)

Love you guys and hope to see you soon!

I have made PW's cinnamon rolls many times, and they're good every time. Although I leave the coffee out in the frosting because we aren't coffee drinkers, and substitute vanilla for maple (and go light on the frosting-I can't handle that much!). Yum yum!
