This easy, no yeast cinnamon roll dough can be made and baked in under an hour. Try making Eggnog Cinnamon Rolls for a delicious holiday twist.
So far we have gone through two containers of eggnog...in one week. And Christmas is still 20 days away! Oh, and only two of us actually like eggnog in our house.
My oldest finished off the first container so quickly that I had to buy another one and put a note on it that said "Do Not Touch". This is a very necessary note because that kid would seriously drink all of it in one day if I let him. I had these cinnamon rolls in mind, so I had to make sure the eggnog was there when I went to bake.
So, the other day I about fell over. Not because I tripped or anything...although that has happened before. My oldest son came home from school and asked if we could go shopping...for clothes. And then he said he wanted clothes for Christmas too. Stylish clothes to be exact.
Who is this???
This is the child who wants nothing to do with shopping and who will wear whatever clothes I buy. I was in shock just about all day from those two comments. I was telling my husband this and he asked, "Is there a girl?" We asked, and he swears up and down that there is no girl. I have my suspicions though...
Maybe I should buy two more containers of eggnog. One for my son to drink and one for me to bake him yummy eggnog treats...then I will bribe him with both to tell me why he is interested in clothes so much. He does go to a private school where the kids do dress a little nicer. The mom in me is hoping that is the reason...no way am I ready for him to like girls.
But we did take him to the mall the other night. He was like a kid in a candy store...except we were in Old Navy, and he was picking out shirts and cardigans. Oh, and he asked for a bow tie. Again who is this child? I think it is all the Dr. Who he has been watching lately. He even wore a bow tie to school today. Apparently it is the cool thing to wear now.
I have to face it one of these days...my baby is growing up and I don't like it.
I think I will just go face plant myself into a pan of these Eggnog Cinnamon Rolls to console myself.
This is such an easy dough to make. I love it because there is no rise time. Make the dough, roll it up, and bake. And that can all happen in about 45 minutes with a bowl and a fork. Perfect for those mornings you have a cinnamon roll craving!
This eggnog version is so delicious. I used eggnog in the dough, and again in the frosting. No shortage of eggnog flavor here!
