I have a HUGE sweet tooth for cinnamon rolls. In my home town at the county fair, the cinnamon roll wagon would always be there selling the delicious rolls. I would always splurge and get one. Soo yummy! Anyways, who has time to make cinnamon rolls? (probably a good thing because it really should be a 1-2 times a year treat) This easy recipe is quick and delicious! No yeast required! Try them out!
My dough was a little sticky this time so it looks a little floppy but they came out good once they were cooked! It is so much fun making these little guys! My husband is a sucker for them too so I”m glad I’m not alone on this one :)
