These are absolutely fantastic! Light, delicious but not too sweet, easy. I tried them first as is, and then, because we are only 2, the next time I split the dough in half and used half the cinnamon recipe here, and the other half savory, with parmesan cheese (1/2 cup) and Kalamata olives diced fine (1/2 cup). Also delicious! I highly, highly recommend these.

This is an awesome recipe! I used to make my cinnamon roll dough in my bread machine (not this recipe), my poor bread machine is dusty now. I always top off the warm cinnamon rolls shortly after removing from the oven with a cream cheese frosting, so good!!!
