These were THE MOST awesome cinnamon rolls I have ever made in my life! The dough was very easy to work with.... they raised beautifully.. and best of all, they taste JUST LIKE Cinnabon cinnamon rolls!!! I made 2 batches in 2 days~ (giving most away... LOL ...too tempting to have in the house) Definitely a MUST try!!!
