Make-Ahead Cranberry Pecan Cinnamon Rolls

November 24, 2014


It’s Thanksgiving week, and you have out of town guests. Want to make them feel at home? Treat them to these heavenly cinnamon rolls, loaded with cranberries and pecans—perfect for a holiday brunch.

To cut down on morning prep time, do steps 1-6 the night before, then cover the rolls with plastic wrap and place them in the fridge overnight. In the morning, let them rise in a warm place (you might need to give them a little extra time) and then bake according to instructions. Your guests will enjoy them with a pot of chai or your favorite breakfast tea.
