Iowa State Fair Blue-Ribbon Cinnamon Rolls
I don't know about you, but now that the seasons are changing (even though it's still 90 degrees outside!), I'm in the mood for fall baking. I found this recipe for the 2012 Iowa State Fair Winning Cinnamon Rolls from Two Chicks from the Sticks, who happened to judge the Tone's Cinnamon Roll contest this year. I actually baked these on a whim. I woke up on Sunday morning and decided I wanted to knead some bread dough. What better recipe to try than a blue-ribbon winner?
Oh, did my husband love me for baking up these rolls for him! I rolled the dough loosely, so the caramel topping oozed into the middle of each roll. And I noticed right away that the rolls have a healthy dose of cinnamon, which made them unique. The caramel sauce also sits on the stove for a little bit longer than normal so it gets extra rich and gooey. I'm sure I'll be baking these sticky rolls up again soon!
