My mom used to slave over our traditional cinnamon rolls every Christmas eve so they would be ready to pop in the oven on Christmas morning... it probably took her an hour. Last year I made these instead and not only did the family rave about them (they taste the same as my mom's old recipe) it only took me 5 mins to make! They're incredibly easy to make and they're delicious! My variation: butterscotch pudding instead of vanilla, no raisins, and I first sprinkle the pudding over the rolls and then mix the cinnamon, brown sugar and butter together to pour on top.


I've made these for years. It's a Christmas tradition at my house. Beware though, they're so good that you can't stop eating them! I also made half the pan with raisins and half with nuts. This way, everyone is happy! These are the best.


This was a great recipe, my family loved it! The only problem i ran into was choosing the wrong rolls. Make sure that your frozen dinner rolls are still doughy and will form together. I accidentally got the kind that I believe are partially cooked and they did not combine, but still tasted great. I added a little hot water and some extra butter over the rolls to moisten the sugar mix into a sauce. I topped them with a cream cheese icing, delicious!
