      These are absolutely THE BEST cinnamon rolls I've ever made!!! I have been searching for this perfect recipe for years! I used real butter and real vanilla (I make my own) and I included some allspice and cloves in my cinnamon mixture.
      Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful recipe!!!

      Absolutely wonderful tasting cinnamon rolls, these, & I really enjoyed the preparation of them, too! Needless to say, I did use real butter & vanilla & was a bit generous with the toasted nuts! And, as much as I do enjoy those with the extra frosting, these, as given in this recipe, were outstanding! I'll certainly be keeping this recipe around from now on!
