Make the cinnamon and sugar mixture.
Spread your rectangle with butter. Lots of smooth, creamy butter! Real Butter please! Then sprinkle the rectangle liberally with your cinnamon sugar mixture. I used my flour sifter.
Roll the rectangle into this shape. Don’t worry if it’s not perfect. You can cut those ugly ends off, and bake them for your samples. I mean, you have to sample it right? You don’t care if it’s ugly, as long as it tastes good, right?
Here’s my hint for slicing the rolls. Use Dental Floss!! Works like a charm, go under, criss-cross and pull. Makes for smooth clean cuts every time, and is better than sawing away with your knife.
Place your beautiful rolls into a BUTTERED pan. Yep, more butter. At this point, you can rise and bake as the recipe recommends, or cover tightly with plastic wrap, and refrigerate overnight. That way you can bake them in the morning! Just remove the wrap in the morning, and place into a cool oven, set the temperature to 350, and bake for about 25-30 minutes. Your kitchen will smell like heaven!
Ice the rolls while they are still warm from the oven. The cream cheese icing recipe is fabulous! I’d even use it on cakes. It’s really yummy! Seriously, how gorgeous are these rolls? They tasted even better than they look! After making these, you’ll never want to open a Pillsbury can again!
