I am the youngest in my family, in fact my youngest brother is 7 years older than I am. So when he got older, involved in school activities and summer jobs, AND we got carpet in the dining room...which meant less scrubbing...I learned how to bake the bread! It was alot better than scrubbing!
This recipe is one my older sister started baking during 4H. Mom, or whoever did the baking that week, always made a 9x 13 pan of cinnamon rolls and the rest into buns. We ate the rolls for Sunday breakfast and the buns for Sunday dinner. We had a beef pot roast every Sunday after church....never fail...and I loved dunking the rolls into mom's rich beef gravy!
I really like this recipe, but of course I had to change it a bit. Mom usually just sprinkled brown sugar in the bottom of the 9x13 pan for the cinnamon rolls. She added a bit of milk, a few dots of butter too.
But after making Pioneer Woman's rolls several times, I knew her Maple frosting would taste wonderful on this bread,too.
