I may be in my twenties, but Christmas morning has never changed. Early in the morning, I wake up giddy with anticipation. I try to not wake anyone else. Finally, I drop one too many spoons or shut the pantry door a little too hard and everyone else wakes up. There is the childlike joy of unwrapping presents under the tree and the mess of paper that follows.

We never made Christmas breakfast. Ever.

Chocolate chip cookies, candy and pure excitement was all we needed to fill our tummies. But if you did want your family to have something more than pure sugar for Christmas breakfast, these delicious cinnamon rolls come together quick enough that you could sneak off while someone struggles to unhinge that must have toy from its stressful packaging.

Yeah, I know the Christmas breakfast recipe looks long, but really, the gooey maple pecan cinnamon rolls are easy to make.

And sooo tasty. I promise.

Seriously, Look at that awesomeness. ^.^

We always have cinnamon rolls for breakfast on Christmas. I wish that my husband enjoyed nuts in them, but only half of my children and I like to crunch into a nut while eating a baked good. Your rolls look wonderful. Hope you had a great Christmas!!

This looks delicious. We started a tradition with our kids of Christmas brunch. Breakfast gets overlooked due to excitement. And cooking 3 meals on a busy day like that is not happening. So we just do brunch and dinner. I'd rather be opening gifts anyway. lol

Glad I'm not the only (eh-hem) 27 year old that can't sleep through the night and is wide awake at 3:30 Christmas morning! But now that santa doesn't stop at my house anymore (jerk) I might just have to make this in my early morning eagerness!
