I must admit that the first thing I fell in love with was not the fire roasted cinnamon rolls but Clary Pfeiffer’s insanely pretty farm house. It’s completely to-die-for and the scrumptious recipe is the cherry on top. Perfect for both cold weather mornings and summer bonfires, dive into this simple breakfast that packs a mighty flavor punch. And see even more of this gorgeous home in the VAULT!

Waking up to an orange sun and a blanket of snow is a welcome guest while we wait patiently for spring. The winters are long so we’ve made an art of staying in, building a morning fire, and finding fun ways to cook over an open flame. Our favorite is roasting cinnamon rolls which turn perfectly caramelized and gooey like the best part of the cinnamon roll, the middle. The secret is adding a little orange zest to the icing for dipping.

Serves 0Ingredients
  • 1 package of cinnamon rolls
  • the zest of 2 oranges
  • skewers for roasting
  • small bowl to mix icing and zest
Instructions
  1. Open the cinnamon rolls and place the icing in a small bowl.
  2. Mix the zest and icing until smooth.
  3. For your cinnamon rolls cut them into around 8 inch stripes for roasting.
  4. Wrap the roll around skewer using the prongs and roast each side for 3 to 5 minutes.
  5. Let cool and cover with orange icing. This recipe is also amazing for camping or enjoying at a bonfire.
  6. After zesting the oranges you can make citrus juice. We love mixing 5 or 6 squeezed oranges with a cup of pineapple juice for sweetness but any juice mix you love is perfect. It’s a nice break from hot chocolate and makes you excited for warmer days. But the best is using the rids to make the house smell amazing. Throw those in the fire to release all the oils.
