The Candid Cook: Cinnamon Balls (aka "Nummies")

I'm sure this recipe has been done somewhere before by someone.  But not only is this delicious and easy to make for you non-Martha-Stewart types, it's something you can prepare the night before and bake in the morning.  And when church is at 9am and you have to make a special family sit-down breakfast before you go on Easter Sunday... this is just what you need.

The night before you want to eat these, take out about a dozen frozen Rhodes Rolls and let them thaw about an hour.  Once they are soft enough, cut each roll in half with a pair of scissors.  Clean scissors, please.  You are going to eat these after all.

Next you have one bowl with melted butter and cinnamon sugar in a second bowl.  Coat those little babies with butter and cinnamon sugar, and then place into a glass baking dish sprayed with non-stick spray.

Cover the dish with plastic wrap and place it in the fridge.

When you get up in the morning, the rolls will look something like this:

Bake at 350 degrees (preheat your oven, of course!) for about 20-25 minutes.  I can't be sure how long you'll need to exactly because my oven is doing crazy things at the moment. It's all a guessing game when I bake stuff these days.  But when they are done they'll be a nice golden brown.

You can enjoy them just like this, or - if you have the inclination - you can drizzle with powdered sugar icing.  (Which, if you don't know, is just a mixture of powdered sugar and milk that thinner than regular frosting and will melt nicely on top of hot rolls.)
