April Fools’ Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

The Drummond household loves a great prank—simply ask them in regards to the ongoing feud involving rubber snakes! That is why, in honor of April Fools’ Day, we got here up with the concept of savory rolls disguised as Ree’s well-known cinnamon rolls. In any case, there’s one thing about these candy, buttery, warm-from-the-oven rolls that is simply pure heaven on earth—it is the right lure for a great ol’ April Fools’ joke.

Think about your personal household’s shock once you serve a batch of them on the desk and the youngsters get that first style of “dessert.” Chunk into one and… shock! Every roll is full of pulled pork and barbecue sauce. Don’t fret, although—these rolls are simply as tasty. The pork combination offers them a taste harking back to a pulled pork sandwich whereas the cornmeal dough makes them pillowy delicate and chewy. Give ’em a drizzle of Alabama white sauce and also you’re good to go!

The perfect half? Everybody shall be fooled, however nobody’s dissatisfied!

Heck, they may even ask for seconds.

Would not that be humorous?
