Baking Cinnamon Rolls

I mentioned somewhere last week that I was making Cinnamon Rolls. These are the result. Well one pan of them anyway. They were tasty, but I have had better. I will have to try again one day.
Making them involved mixing up the dough and letting it rise. Then I rolled the dough out and spread melted butter on the dough. I sprinkled cinnamon and sugar all over the dough and rolled them up for slicing. I put them in the refrigerator over night to rise and be ready to bake in the morning. The house smelled really good.
My sister said her recipe is a bit easier. Remove frozen rolls from freezer, put in pan, bake, and pour on powdered suguar glaze. I bet her house smells just as good and no mess.
I would try her recipe, but we all know I like to do things the hard way, no matter how messy it is.
That was post one for the day. I have cows and flowers to come.
