Cinnamon Rolls–Gluten & Dairy Free

Gluten and Dairy Free Cinnamon Rolls from The Gluten-Free Homemaker

What recipe means both “home” and “the holidays” to me?  That’s easy.  Cinnamon rolls!

We like to enjoy a nice breakfast together on Christmas morning.  It usually includes eggs, sausage, fruit salad, and always, cinnamon rolls.  Well, not always.  The year I was diagnosed with celiac disease I didn’t have time to come up with gluten-free cinnamon rolls by Christmas so we went without.  But by the next year we had homemade cinnamon rolls for breakfast.

This recipe is not new to my blog, but I’m reposting it as part of Home for the Holidays, Gluten-Free Style hosted by Shirley of gluten free easily.  This event has been going on since November 28 and continues until December 23.

These gluten-free and dairy-free cinnamon rolls are wonderful, and my family loves them.  Last year was my first Christmas being dairy free, and this recipe was easy to convert.  Unlike many cinnamon roll recipes, it does not use a lot of butter.  The little butter it does call for can easily be replaced with a dairy free margarine, and almond milk worked in place of cow’s milk.

Cinnamon Rolls–Gluten & Dairy Free
Recipe type: Bread
  • 2 Tablespoons dairy free margarine (or butter )
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ⅔ cup almond milk, warm (or cow’s milk)
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 Tablespoon instant yeast
  • ¼ cup sorghum flour
  • ½ cup millet flour
  • ¾ cup corn starch
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 2½ teaspoons xanthan gum
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
For the Filling
  • ⅔ – 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ⅓ cup chopped nuts (optional)
For the Glaze
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • about 1 Tablespoon almond milk
  1. Using a mixer, combine the margarine and sugar. Mix well.
  2. Add the egg, oil, vanilla, and most of the almond milk. Hold back about 3 tablespoons of the milk.
  3. Combine the remaining ingredients (yeast through salt) and add to the wet mixture.
  4. Beat on high about 2 minutes until well mixed with no lumps. The dough will be soft, but should hold together. Add the remaining milk if needed.
  5. Lay out a piece of plastic wrap and sprinkle it with sugar. Lay the dough on top and cover it with another piece of plastic wrap.
  6. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough into a 13½ inch square. Lift the top piece of plastic wrap often and reposition if necessary. You can spray the wrap with cooking spray if the dough is sticking.
  7. Combine the filling ingredients. Spread the filling on the dough leaving a margin at one side. As you roll the dough, the filling with get shifted. The margin keeps it from being pushed all the way out at the end.
  8. Roll the dough by lifting up the plastic wrap. Once you get the roll started, it will roll on its own. Once rolled, smooth out the edge.
  9. If you want nice clean end pieces, cut a little off each end. I leave them as is.
  10. Using a sharp knife, cut the roll into 8 slices. You can do this by cutting the roll in half, then cut each half in half, then cut the quarters in half.
  11. Place the rolls in a glass pie dish and bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.
  12. Combine the glaze ingredients. Add the almond milk a teaspoon at a time until the glaze is the right consistency. You can adjust the amount of glaze to your taste.
  13. Drizzle the glaze over the warm rolls and serve.

    I’m asking for some Elves for Christmas so they can make me cinnamon rolls everyday for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Gosh, they’re gorgeous. I think I need to go corner the market on cinnamon and then see if the Pillsbury Doughboy needs a mate. :-)

  2. Anna says

    Cinnamon rolls have always been a tradition at my house as well on Christmas morning. Unfortunately I can’t have yeast along with many other things. These do look delicious though! I’ll keep looking for a recipe I can use though!

  3. Laurel Holler says

    Those look amazing!! Home For the Holidays to me means being at parents house with extended family enjoying time together!!

  4. Christa says

    Many unexpected, difficult things have happened in our life, and in our extended family this year. It makes the time we spend together this holiday season even more precious as we gather together to laugh, cry and support one another. My sister-in-law brightened our home with beautiful decorations on the mantel above our fireplace, and our four-year-old continues to add colorful, hand-made decorations to our tree. Through it all, our family continues to remind us how very blessed we are to have one another.

  5. Dana Coughlin says

    Home for the holidays means hanging out with family and just having fun. These cinnamon rolls look wonderful.

  6. says

    Home for the holidays means that our whole extended family gets together and celebrates over dinner and games on Christmas Eve after church and the following day my sisters and I with our families meet at my parents for a day long, low key Christmas celebration. It is just a wonderful time :)

  7. says

    Mmmm…cinnamon rolls. Looks delicious! Home for the holidays means opening presents in pj’s, drinking hot chocolate and snuggling.

  8. SherriS. says

    Home for the holidays means that everyone I love will come together to enjoy hours of celebrating Christmas with good food, music, decorations, games — lots of pictures to remember it by.

  9. Stephanie says

    LOVE cinnamon rolls! My husband comments when it’s been too long since we’ve made them…

  10. Carol Dyer says

    What ‘Home for the Holidays’ means to me… Being happy where ever you are. We’ve moved a lot in our marriage, and have learned you have to make the best out of every situation. This includes going GF! Thanks for bring back a family tradition for Christmas morning. I’m going to try this today to make sure I get it… Do you know if I could make the rolls the night before and put it in the fridge before baking???

  11. says

    To me, “Home for the Holidays” means doing everything within your power to forget about work, school, and anything else stressing you out, and to focus on being alive and present with family and friends.

  12. CeCe says

    Thanks for the cinnamon roll recipe! Alas, one of my kids isn’t able to have yeast, but that’s not going to stop me from trying your recipe with some substitutions, thanks!

    Home for the Holidays means playing in the kitchen with my three littles coming up with yummy foods to eat :)

  13. Sheila says

    Home for the Holidays means spending it with family, as many of us together as possible!!

  14. Rachel Williams says

    “Home for the Holidays” to me, means spending it with the ones you love the most, like family, friends, etc.

  15. says

    Give me the smell of fresh baked cinnamon rolls to wake up in the morning, and I am one happy lady! These look great, will try them over the holidays.

  16. Suzanne says

    Home for the holidays means spending happy time with close friends. I’m printing out this cinnamon rolls recipe & plan on making it on Christmas eve.

  17. Sarah DJ says

    Home for the Holidays means going to my parents… :-) Enjoying a visit with them!

  18. Jaye says

    I know I’m probably missing it somewhere, but can’t fund it anywhere; what temperature do I cook these at and for how long? THANK YOU!

  19. Kristine says

    I was JUST looking for a cinnamon roll recipe this weekend because we’re going to have them on Christmas Eve!! Thank you!! What perfect timing! Home for the holidays, to me, is hot chocolate after Christmas Eve service. This year we’ve decided to add cinnamon rolls to this tradition just for fun. :)

  20. says

    Home for the Holidays means spending time with friends and family, celebrating Christ’s birth, no matter where we are. :)

  21. Molly says

    Home for the Holidays means just that–being home with my friends and family, all those who I love the most! Thank you for this amazing recipe!

  22. says

    Home for the Holidays means just that, being home with my family and enjoying time with each other.

  23. Pamela says

    Home for the Holidays means to me, that my husband and children are with me on Christmas. Relaxing, eating good food, opening gifts, and just enjoying each others company.

  24. Chelsea says

    It means making the long drive to spend the holidays with our family that live in other states.

  25. JennyA says

    Home for the holidays this year is to be spent quietly with the hubby trying to recuperate from a difficult year health-wise! I could sure use any of these prizes!

    Many Blessings to all…

  26. says

    These look tasty! I was wondering if anyone would know what would be acceptable subs for sorghum flour and millet flour, if there are any? I have rice flour, coconut flour, teff, and potato flour and was hoping maybe one or more of those might work. I’m a gluten-free newbie and am still working on my strange flours purchases for the pantry.

    • says

      I would suggest rice flour or brown rice flour as a sub for both. I have never used flour subs in this recipe, though, so you should do an experimental batch to see how they turn out. I haven’t used teff much, but it might work well. You could try 1/2 c. rice flour and 1/4 c. teff. Again, I’m just guessing. Coconut flour requires a lot more liquid and potato flour (not potato starch) is usually used in small quantities only.

  27. says

    Home for holidays to me means baking, listening to music and spending time with family. These look great by the way!

  28. Christine B says

    Home for the holidays means having my hubby home more, and some time with his family.

  29. pat says

    Home for the Holidays means gathering wherever my children are – the more the better! (My kids live in 5 different states, so it’s extremely rare that we are all together.)

  30. Anne says

    …spending time with loved ones!!! This series of recipes has been awesome! I don’t know what to make for breakfast because there have been so many options. Thanks to all the bloggers!

  31. Suzanne H says

    I don’t celebrate the holidays, so for me it means more time with my family and more time for baking and cooking!

  32. says

    Home for the Holidays for me is just that. We always stay home for Christmas. No traveling. Nothing like waking up in your own bed Christmas morning :)

  33. Heather says

    This recipe looks great! Home for the holidays means spending time with family surrounded by good food. Thanks for sharing!

  34. Stacy says

    Home for the Holidays means family. Spending time together and enjoying each other’s company.

  35. says

    I love the decorations, I love being with family, I love the comforting food, and I love the magic of it all in my children’s eyes! BTW…these might be xmas morning’s warm bread!

  36. Shaina says

    Home for the holidays means family to me. It’s a time when you get together with all the ones you love, including the family members you don’t see as often throughout the year. I absolutely love the holidays!

  37. says

    Home for the holidays means spending time with family and close friends. Thank you for this recipe!

  38. Megan says

  40. Brenda says

    Home for the Holidays means time with family and good food celebrating the birth of Christ!

  41. Sharon says

    Home for the holidays means being with my husband and children. I made your cinnamon bun recipe last year with great success and plan to make it again this year.

  42. Brandae says

    Yum, yum, yum! Printing this recipe out to try for my family. Home for the holidays is all about down time, fun time, rest time, no crazy rushing time.

  43. JillW says

    “Home for the holidays” means something new for us this year–home for Christmas Day. We’ve always spent it with my husband’s grandmother, who passed away this summer. This year, my husband, my daughter, and myself will be at home all day. This will also be our first gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free Christmas. Back before celiac/intolerance, cinnamon rolls were a fave at our house, so I’m thinking that working together on your recipe will make it a special day we will remember. I’d love to read any of the books in the giveaway. This life change has been such a challenging process. It’s amazing to look back and see how far we’ve come, but often intimidating to see how far we have yet to go. Looking forward to 2012 and to your posts for that year! Thanks!

  44. Courtney says

    Home for the holidays literally means going home for the holidays–I don’t live near my family, and although I hate traveling over the holidays, when I finally get there it is worth it to be with my family!

  45. Denise M says

    Home for the holidays means being with family, no matter where we are

  46. says

    These turned out beautifully! I might try making these with a few substitutions (can’t have corn, but I’m sure arrowroot would work just fine!).

    Home for the holidays means family to me. I can’t imagine being anywhere else or with anyone else than in Alaska surrounded by the people we love. :)

    Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas!!

  47. Sharmista says

    Home for the holidays means just being together with family and friends. :)

  48. Arlee says

    Great recipe and giveaway! Spending time with my family is what home for the holidays means to me.Those special moments being cherished and seeing the smile on my kids face is priceless!

  49. Jan says

    Home is definitely where the heart is at the moment. Living far away from family we bring a few traditions of our past, mix them with some new ones and make our own blend. The smell of cinnamon rolls in the morning is something we’ll always keep!

  50. says

    Cinnamon rolls like these are just what make Christmas morning special! THANK YOU for the recipe. We’ve been searching for a good one for weeks now!

  51. Adria says

    Home for the holidays – means lots of Christmas music and gatherings with family and friends!

  52. says

    Home for the holidays to me means being present, being together, sharing time, sharing love, sharing the gift of Jesus Christ to the world! And food to share, of course =)

  53. Beth says

    To me, a feeling of “home” comes from being surrounded by people you love, whether that is friends, immediate family, or extended. So home for the holidays means being able to spend that extra time with the people you love.

  54. Denise Fedor says

    Home for the holidays for us means taking the time to prepare the same foods every year for Christmas Eve and Christmas morning. Our own party trays presented for just the three of us. Thanks, Dee

  55. Micki says

    Now that we have little ones, I don’t travel “home” for the holidays any more. We like the kids to wake up in their own beds on Christmas morning. So, I am working on creating our own little family traditions so they have memories to last until they have their own little ones! For now, watching White Christmas and making cookies will be as close to “home” for me, but now I get to share it with my girls!

  56. says

    “Home for the holidays” means being woken up bright and early by the youngest in the house, and having everyone patiently trod downstairs, bleary eyed, to begin the festivities – hopefully with warm cinnamon rolls coming out of the oven!

  57. julie says

    Home for the holidays means making latkes with my family and laughing when they come out all wrong!

  58. Kristine says

    Thankyou So Much for sharing your Cinnamon Roll Recipe, It’s one of the things my family sure does miss and now I will get to make them for them! Thanks so much. Thanks too for the giveaways, would love to win the Gluten Free on a Shoestring!

  59. Amy says

    Home for the holidays means a fire in the fireplace, hot punch in the crock pot, lots of great food, and fun with our family.

    Thanks for the great recipe!

  60. Heather Brandt says

    Home for the holidays reminds me of when we traveled home with our son on Christmas Eve 3 years ago…We adopted him from Russia and it felt so good to be home in the U.S. for Christmas!

  61. says

    Cinnamon roles are a definate holiday tradition for us, though for the past few years I have been unable to participate because of being gluten free. I am really excited about all of the cinnamon role recipes I have seen recently; I might have to try them all!
    Thanks for doing this.

  62. Sharon says

    Christmas mornings and cinnamon rolls have always been linked in my mind. Love the smell as they cook. It’s how we start our morning.

  63. Sarah P says

    Home for the holidays… sometimes I wish I could transport myself back in time at place to my childhood holidays on our Maryland farm, but I love the home comforts our small family have made here in Colorado. Home is definitely where my boys are!

  64. Gretchen Corbin says

    To me, “home for the holidays” means spending time with my family. I don’t get to be home for the holidays every year, but when I do, it is very special.

  65. Pogonia says

    I don’t do holidays, but these cinnamon rolls look like a treat any day of the year!

  66. Amanda says

    Home for the holidays for us means family getting together and eating and drinking and most of all relaxing! These cinnamon rolls look wonderful, thanks for sharing!

  67. AJ says

    These look so good!

    Home for the holidays to me means lots of homemade delicious goodies.

  68. Amanda M says

    Home for the Holidays to me means being with your family. You can be anywhere in the world, but if you are with your family, enjoying each other and good, real food, you are home.

  69. Rebecca Avery says

    Home for the Holidays to me is my sister coming over on Christmas Eve and helping me wrap presents while I feed her a constant supply of cookies I have made. This year she is getting gluten free ones!

  70. Kathy says

    I love anything with cinnamon. These buns sound fantastic. Merry Christmas.

  71. laurie says

    Those look amazing! My kids will be so excited if I make these. Thank you!

    Home for the Holidays to me is family, traditions and food. Just being home and remembering the real reason we celebrate Christmas…God’s love for us and the gift of our families.

  72. melissa westlie says

    Home for the holidays means spending time with my wonderful husband and his super family. And this year it also means spending the holidays with our new baby girl!

  73. Carolyn R. says

    I am blessed to have one of my siblings and her two boys as well as my parents here in town. Christmas Eve we gather at my sister’s house for our traditional Christmas Eve dinner of chili and oyster stew (a nod to my grandfather who is no longer with us). After dinner we clean the kitchen and then, now that the boys are teenagers so we don’t have to bathe them and get them in their new pajamas, we open gifts. Afterwards we snack on treats family from around the country have sent us. Christmas Day we gather at my parents for breakfast consisting of eggs, bacon or sausage, fruit and cinnamon rolls. Then we all go to Mass together. This is my first year wheat free so I was feeling down because it would mean no cinnamon rolls for me. I am so going to try your recipe. My mother can’t have wheat or dairy either so this will be a treat for her too. Thank you!

  74. Sarah says

    Home for the holidays means to me, just being able to hang out and relax with my family. Life is busy and it is easy to miss things. I’m hoping to do a lot of giggly, game playing, and just talking while my extra family is here this week! Thanks for the giveaway!

  75. Dawn-Marie Valdron says

    Home for the holidays mean taking time out during the Christmas season to spend with family and friends.

  76. Kelly says

    Cinnamon rolls were something that I just missed terribly when I first went gluten free (that and Cheerios…). These look like a fun holiday recipe to make!

  77. Susan W. says

    I love cinnamon rolls in the winter. Especially after a hot bowl of chili!

  78. Mrs. Voytek says

    Looks great… Can’t wait to try at our after Christmas, family brunch! No more Pillsbury cans for us!

  79. Linda Bull says

    Home for the holidays is Christmas morning, coffee, opening presents in our PJs, pancakes and then later my mom and sister join us for dinner!

  80. KellyB says

    Home for the holidays means sharing w/ family and the kids wide eyed with excitement. thanks

  81. MaryAnna says

  82. Megan H. says

    The holidays for me are all about family and giving. I love spending time with my family and giving to family and friends always puts a huge smile on my face. It is priceless. :)

  83. Sarah says

    Yumm, cinnamon rolls! Home for the holidays to me means being with my parents and brother, wherever that may be. It means opening stockings in the AM and presents once we’re awake, and my Dad’s mandatory reading of the Christmas story from Luke 2. Usually it means some yummy food too! This year I’ll be making mashed cauliflower and who knows what else. :)

  84. Susan Riley says

    Home for the Holidays means our oldest son is home for Christmas from far-away Seattle, and we are all together enjoying each other for at least one more Christmas!

  85. says

    Home for the holidays means spending some quality time with friends and family. Being on the complete other side of the country from my parents and close childhood friends, it is easy to appreciate even simple conversations, particularly this time of year!

    These cinnamon rolls look amazing. Any thoughts on an egg substitute?

    • says

      Rachel, I’m sorry but I don’t have any experience with egg substitutes. You’ll just have to experiment and let us know!

  86. Aron j. says

    Traveling to my hometown, seeing family and enjoying the chill in the air. I would love these books to help w my new diet!

  87. Isabel says

    Home for the holidays means the house constantly smelling of cinnamon and pine, frantically rushing about to finish wrapping presents, and – unfortunately – a pile of homework to do over the winter break. However no longer! (Thank goodness for colleges ending semesters -before- the winter break. Much more sensible) Now it can actually mean relaxation.

  88. Heather says

    the Holidays mean days spent in my jammies, lots of baking, and snuggling on the couch with the kids watching movies

  89. Carissa says

    Home for the holidays means not just being in your natural home, but being with people you love and care about whether you are in someone else’s home or in your own.

  90. Marissa W says

    celebrating with our huge-o-mungous family in the Midwest – snowball fights, sledding, loads of food and great people!

  91. Ellen says

    For the first year, home for the holidays simply means relaxing at home with my honey – can’t wait for an awesome, stress-free weekend!

  92. Kristen M. says

    Those rolls look incredible. We also have cinnamon rolls on Christmas morning. Growing up my home for the holidays memory was having to wait to open presents until after we’d eaten a nice warm breakfast/

  93. says

    For me the holidays are baking until you drop and giving so much you are full of nothing but gratitude.

  94. Kate says

    Home for the holidays means good food, family and friends, even if it’s not really home!

  95. Becka says

    holidays means family (the ones we love and the ones we still love, but aren’t really sure we want to….) and FOOD! so much food that I hate eating for at least 10 minutes after christmas eve dinner… =) thanks for the recipe – it looks fabulous!

  96. alisa joy says

  98. Elisa says

    I will be making these for Christmas morning! Thank you for the recipe.

  99. Angela says

    Home for the Holidays means having my children home from college. Lots of noise in my usually quiet house and the challenges of keeping a gluten free home with non gluten free kids around. Hard to do, but I love every second of it.

  100. Sharon says

    What a great recipe! Home for the holidays means simplicity to me. Enjoying some simple gluten and dairy free food, relaxing by the fire with my sweet girls and husband.

  101. Cindy says

    I will be enjoying these cinnamon rolls with the rest of the family this year. Usually, I just skip them. I am so grateful to have both daughters home for the holidays.

  102. Stephanie says

    Home for the holidays for us means relatives from both sides of the family coming over. It means good food and fun for the kids. I’m two months gluten free so it will be different for me this year. My son asked for cinnamon rolls so this will be great to try. Can the dough be made a day ahead of time so I can put them in the oven on Xmas morning?

  103. Gail says

    Christmas for me is a time for reflection–on what that holy night 2,000 years ago was like; and for family gatherings, eating, more eating, and did I say eating!

    Have a wonderful Christmas everyone!

  104. JP says

    Baking, cooking, especially the smell of cinnamon… Love it! The perfect complement to spending time with family and friends.

  105. Sarah M says

    ‘Home for the Holidays’ means I am DONE with exams, will take a LONG plane ride tomorrow, will WATCH lots of tv, enjoy WARM weather, and not WORRY about the number on the register at the grocery store ’cause I’ll be shoppin’ with my MOMMA. : )

  106. Carolyn says

    Home for the Holidays means being able to share your love with family and friends whether they are with you or not!

  107. Kathy W. says

    These cinnamon rolls look divine!I may get brave and try them. Home for the Holidays means being at home, enjoying the season with family and friends. What more could a gal need? I am so blessed!

  108. Sarah C says

    Home for the holidays for me is going to my mother-in-law’s on the night before Christmas Eve, celebrating with that side of the family and having our Christmas day on Christmas Eve. It is so much fun!
    Later on my husband and I have our own Christmas (of earlier on as it is this year). Then we have his cousins come over for a Christmas party. Finally we have a party with my family.
    Home for the holidays to me, is being with family.

  109. Susan Isenberg says

    Ohhhhh! I can smell the cinnamon. The memories this brings back. Now I can bake cinnamon rolls and eat them too. If I win and have a choice of books, Gluten Free on a Shoestring would be my choice. Merry Christmas.


  110. Karin says

    Spending more time with family and lots of baking. Thanks for all the great recipes!

  111. says

    Your cinnamon rolls look fantastic! To me, Home for the Holidays means finally being in a sunny climate again after years away at school. :)

  112. says

    Home for the Holidays to me is baking the pies in mom’s kitchen. That was the job she gave me every year, and it was always so fun to be stirring and rolling the pies out while she prepared the main dishes for Christmas dinner the next day.

  113. says

    Home for the holidays means sharing home-cooked meals and lots of laughs with friends and family throughout the holiday season!

    Home for the holidays means being surrounded by loved ones, no matter where you are.

  117. Anna says

    “Home for the Holidays” means I’m with my family. My husband and kids. Other than that it doesn’t matter where we are. This year we’ll be at Disney enjoying gluten free waffles on christmas morning!

  118. sandra g says

    We love cinnamon rolls for sure these gems will be on our breakfast table with the casseroles… The best part of the holiday is the grandchildren, they make it special…

  120. Karlee says

    Home for the Holidays means spending time with my family. It is especially important this year since I just started grad school and spend the entire week away from my husband. So being Home for the Holidays this year means spending extra time with him. Yay!

  121. Susan says

    I must confess that I am salivating just looking at the picture of the cinnamon rolls! Yummy! Thanks for this recipe and the great giveaways!

  122. Susan says

    Ooops – forgot to say what Home for the Holidays means to me (I was so taken with the recipe). I love spending time with family on Christmas Day and being at my childhood home brings back all of the wonderful memories of past Christmas’s.

    Thank you for posting these – they look delicious! I will be trying them this year. Home for the holidays to me means extra special time with family, being thankful for our blessings, enjoying scrumptious food, and enjoying each other.

  124. LeAnn says

    Home for the Holidays to me means being with family and/or friends and celebrating love and friendships….just a reminder to be thankful for the people in our lives.

  125. AnnMarie Deis says

    Holidays is a time of sharing time with loved ones — both near and far. It also means much renewed hope and preparation for the coming new year.

    Happy holidays!

    Home for the holidays for me means having all my children and their spouses and my two grandaughters over for Christmas Eve dinner.

  127. Eileen says

    These cinnamon rolls look wonderful! What a comfort food. Think I know what I’m making Sunday morning….

  128. Michelle P. says

    Home for the holidays means just that – home! We stay home and don’t travel anywhere for Christmas. It has been so special for us to turn that into a time for just our family and creating fun traditions.
    One of those traditions has usually been cinnamon rolls on Christmas morning, but not last year as I was diagnosed celiac. This year, hopefully!

  129. says

    These look amazing! Can’t wait to make some for Christmas morning!

    Home for the Holidays means family and food!

    Home for the holidays is new for me this year.. spending my first Christmas with my bf’s family :)

  133. Angi says

    I can’t wait to try these cinnamon rolls! Last year I went without, after discovering my gluten issues. This year I want to be able to eat holiday foods and share the gluten free and healthier treats with all my family. Being together with my friends and family is what being home for the holidays means for me!

  134. Megan says

    Your cinnamon rolls look very tasty!!

    Home for the Holidays means having the people I love all under one roof enjoying each other’s company and having great food! This year we’re away from our extended families but the three of us will have them all in our thoughts and hearts :)

  135. Starbright says

    Home for the hgoing to holidays means means going to Dad’s house with all my siblings. Food, caroling, wine and lots of story telling:)

  136. Linda S. says

    I made these last Christmas morning and they were heavenly! Happy Holidays to all! :)

  137. Nisha says

    Home for the holidays means being around the people that love me most. Being pretty estranged from my own family, this means spending the holidays with my boyfriend’s family who treat me like one of their own.

  138. LC says

    For us this year, Home for the Holidays means having our two little girls, whom we just adopted, home with us for our first Christmas together. We were matched with them exactly a year ago but didn’t get to meet them until January. The two year old is allergic to wheat and sensitive to foods with gluten. We are learning to live a gluten-free life to keep her safe & healthy. Cinnamon rolls is a staple at our breakfast table on every holiday. Can’t wait to try this recipe. :)

  139. Susan says

    These look SO yummy! I will have to do some thinking on how to could tweak these to be safe for my allergies. *gears turning!*

    Home For the Holidays….I love watching the awe and excitement in my son’s eyes when he wakes up Christmas morning. It’s still magical! He’ll be 6 in February, so it’s just now getting really good!

  140. says

    I have asked anyone who is getting me a gift to get me a GF cookbook and/or a basket filled with GF foods and recipes and any information that will help me stay on track. I have only been Gluten Free for 2 months and have not slipped yet but I have two teens who love some of the foods that are simply no good for me. I have to keep my willpower up and it is hard to start this from such a very sick point and to have so much to learn and change. There is NO doubt however, that it is more than worth it.

    HAPPY HOLIDAY’S everyone!!!!

  141. Kathi morgan says

    Getting together with family is so important and gulfilling. Lots of great memories made and good food, also sharing rith others. Also giving thanks to God for all that we have been given. This recipe looks awesome.

  142. Joy says

    Home for the Holidays means church on Christmas Eve and being with family, however that looks. Family traditions are changing a bit, since we’re starting to make new traditions with our own family! Our little lady turns 2 years old soon, so this Christmas will be especially fun. :)

  143. Laura says

    For me, home for the holidays means spending time with all my family around Christmas, even if it means driving all over the place!

  144. Andrew says

    Home for the holidays means forgetting about all the holiday craziness and relaxing with my family.

  145. Marsha says

    Home for the Holidays to me means spending quality time with my loved ones and remembering the true reason we get together to celebrate this special time of the year God Bless!!

  146. Loretta says

    Being home for the holidays means a lot to me when it’s shared with those you love. Even though we can’t be with 3 of our children because they are far away, we will Skype or call each other. We will spend precious time with our 2 sons and my mom who lives with us. Also hope to go to family party with all my siblings. Jesus is the reason that we celebrate.

  147. says

    Home for the Holidays has meant many things over the years ~ our family celebrating together, Christmas Eve service and staying up into the early hours of Christmas morning, cinnamon rolls with sausage/bacon Christmas morning, pie. With all adult children now and our season in life changing, my husband and I are pondering what “home for the holidays” means to us now and what it shall look like…
