When is it too early to start bringing out the Christmas tree?
I know most people think it’s way too early but for the hubs, he starts thinking about it even before Halloween.
Every year I politely tell him to wait until at least November — so guess what we have sitting at the end of our living room now??? Yep, you guessed it!
I’ll give you a hint, if you’re still not sure — it’s green and has branches with lights. #pleasedontjudge #itsallthehusbandsidea #atleastitsnotfullydecoratedyet #notsureifthatreallyhelpsthough
Okay, so I figured since we have our tree out, you won’t mind that I’m sharing my first Christmas recipe with you because it’s my most favorite time of the year.
I’m starting the holiday season with these Gingerbread Cinnamon Rolls. Because when we think of Christmas, we automatically think of all things gingerbread and peppermint.
This is one of my favorite cinnamon roll dough recipes because it’s easy and has a quicker rising time which makes it perfect for beginners. You can choose to let the dough rise longer, but it’s nice to know that you can pop them into the oven within 60 minutes.
The dough and filling are packed with gingerbread spices and to kick up that gingerbread cookie flavor, I added crushed ginger snap cookies along with some chocolate chips to the filling. Gingerbread and chocolate make a great combination and when you top it off with a delicious cream cheese frosting – it will be impossible not to fall in love at first bite!
Warm gooey cinnamon rolls that are full of holiday flavors – these are sure to make any breakfast table merry and bright!
