Homemade cinnamon rolls are one of the best Christmas morning treats. If you aren’t a kid anymore and don’t jump out of bed at the crack of dawn to rip open your stocking or anxiously peruse the gifts under the tree, you might still need an early Christmas morning wake-up call. Nothing does a better job at waking the household up from pleasant Christmas eve slumbers, than freshly baking sweet cinnamon rolls wafting throughout the house.

At midnight on Friday while I laid in bed listening to our neighbors conversation about the day’s surf, I started brainstorming recipes. My most creative moments apparently happen when I’m half awake and eavesdropping.

As I mentally scanned the refrigerator and pantry I tried to come up with a tasty breakfast for the next morning that wouldn’t require a trip to the store.
