Turn To Your Slow Cooker For Super Delicious Homemade Cinnamon Rolls
You may not think of cinnamon rolls as a "set it and forget it" food, but a slow cooker can give you delicious rolls that require only about 10 minutes of hands-on prep time.
When making traditional cinnamon rolls in the oven, you have to let the dough rise twice, first for about 50 minutes, then again for about 25 minutes.
With a slow cooker, you don't need to let the dough rise before baking. Both the rising and baking take place in the crock pot, so the only prep you need to do is making the dough.
Prepare your rolls, then nestle them into the crock pot and cook for two hours on high. The cooking time is longer than it is in the oven, but you save yourself a ton of effort.
You can make the process even easier by using canned crescent rolls for the dough. The moist cooking environment of the slow cooker produces super moist and fluffy cinnamon rolls.
