I made these rolls today (subpar pics, sorry, we’re a little short on daylight this time of year), a delicious recipe that can sit in the fridge for a couple of days before baking. I actually baked and iced one pan today and gave them to Stacey – the other I’m saving for Christmas morning. I found the recipe on cooks.com and made a few tweaks. The icing is from a Paula Deen recipe on foodnetwork.com. The rolls smell heavenly and are soft and gooey – just how they’re supposed to be.
If you’re hunting for something special to bake for Christmas morning and you run out of time for yeast bread, my other favorite breakfast pastries are almond puff pastry and my mom’s sour cream coffee cake. Both are delicious. On the savory side, I often make a cheesy brunch strata (egg bake) – assemble it the night before, pop it in the oven the next morning until crusty, and it will be a Merry Christmas indeed.
