These cinnamon rolls are really delicious and easy to make. I make the dough the night before and assemble them, so in the morning just pop in the oven. These are great with or without frosting. Original recipe came from Epicurious with a few of my own changes. Enjoy!

These rolls made a wonderful treat for breakfast for the two of us, & my midday they were all gone! I decided to leave off the glaze, & that worked out just fine! Great cinnamon rolls! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in New Kids on the Block recipe tag]
