24-Hour Cinnamon Rolls

24-Hour Cinnamon Rolls

These cinnamon rolls may look like they take a lot of time. But they don’t if you plan ahead! I make these before I go to bed at night and then wake up and cook them and they are all ready to go!

Before we dive in, if you are looking for more ways to use this same dough recipe – try some of my other favorites!

Roll into a rectangle and spread with melted butter (I use almost a whole cube)

Add sugar, brown sugar, and lots of cinnamon!

Roll and slice

Place in pans. Cover with a thin rag or cloth. Leave on counter and let rise for at least 8 hours (or until you wake up!)


And they should look like this! (some of these cinnamon rolls were bigger then my hand so next time I will cut them a little smaller and make 3 9×13 pans)

How to Store 24 Hour Cinnamon Rolls:

I’ll be surprised if you have any leftover (just kidding!)….I store these in an air tight container for 2-3 days max. You can heat them up in the microwave too if you want to enjoy them warm again!! I’ve also just reheated the icing for a similar effect! These are amazing for the first 1-2 days but then will begin to harden after that. Believe me, if I could, I would always have these on hand! They are a crowd favorite and my family just adores them!

  1. These are to die for! Can you ship some to me if mine don't turn out as yummy as yours?!? 🙂 🙂

  2. Do you cover it when you let it rise? I have made cinnamon rolls where you put them in the fridge, do you leave these out on the counter?

  3. I'm making these right now for Conference morning! Thanks for the recipe Scar!

      I have a couple questions to make sure these are done RIGHT! Do you use the hook attachment of your mixer or the paddle? What kind of Yeast, Rapid Rise or Active Dry?

    I am wondering when you say to “mix” are you doing this by hand (like kneading) or are you using your mixer?
    Thank you, Dianne
