Recipe by Demelza

We loved the cinnamon rolls we would get at Cinnabon. Unfortunately we no longer have a location here. I had watched them making the cinnamon rolls and they had a cinnamon/sugar/butter mixture already made up that they would spread on the dough. While I am sure they had some "secret" ingredient in there I came up with something that works quite well. I had only used 1 Tbsp of cinnamon in the batch I made for the pictures. I prefer more cinnamon so do use up to 2 Tbsp. I just use my regular bun dough, but you can use a sweeter dough if you prefer. Feel free to frost these with cream cheese icing. Please ignore the stats for this recipe. They have been calculated using 2 lbs of yeast, not 2 lbs of yeast dough. This is not a high fiber or high protein recipe.
