SKILLET CINNAMON ROLLS


I'm probably the biggest fan of cinnamon rolls EVER! All that sweetness wrapped up in that doughy delight is a little piece of heaven.  You know you agree;).  The only downfall is preparing the dough.  It takes a little bit of patience, which I don't have, and planning ahead, which I never do.  So while I was trolling pinterest, I came across a picture that said '30-minute cinnamon rolls skillet cake'.  I was immediately hooked!

This past Sunday was 'date morning' for me and the hubby.  Come to think of it I don't think we've seen a date night since Parker was born.  I really need to start looking for a babysitter. But anyways, back to the cinnamon rolls...the best part of this recipe is that it's only 4 ingredients for the rolls and 4 ingredients for the icing. Perfect for a mother with a baby who likes to be held ALL THE TIME.

Once I had the gooey delicious rolls on plates we enjoyed them while watching Catching Fire...it was perfect!
