Tips for Gooier Cinnamon Rolls

We love cinnamon rolls at my house.  Unfortunately, I only make them 3 or 4 times a year; if that!  However, we have been working on perfecting these rolls for awhile now, and I think this last batch has been the best by far.  When I asked my husband for improvements  for this round, he didn't have any for me!
Sorry for the sad cell phone photo.  I just happened to snap a photo right before I put them in the oven. When I made cinnamon rolls this weekend, I wasn't really planning on turning it into a blog post! :)

So.  Here's a few tips to get super gooey cinnamon rolls.

1.  Start with any basic roll recipe.  I go back and forth between a few different ones.  It doesn't really matter. just pick one that you like!
2.  Roll out your dough and spread softened butter on it.
3.  On top of that layer of butter, place additional pats of butter randomly across your dough.  I used 5 or 6 pats of butter for each set of dough I had to roll out (typically 2/recipe).
4.  Use brown sugar rather than granulated.  LOTS of brown sugar.  Seriously?  I don't think you need to worry about getting too much on there, and who eats these to be healthy anyway? ;)

That should provide you with yummy, bubbling deliciousness all around your rolls when you pull them out of the oven.  Obviously, the more butter and sugar you use, the more goo you'll get.

Sounds yummy! Going to have to get my cook (my husband) to make up some cinnamon rolls :-)
