i found this here http://lobsterandfishsticks.com/2009/08/25/lowfat-cinnamon-rolls/ and they sound pretty tasty and look pretty good, i love the idea of replacing the butter in the filling with applesauce. i hope i have time to try it sometime soon. the baking time looks awfully short though so that may need to change.

These are very nice. The texture of the rolls is great, and you don't even miss the butter that cinnamon rolls are usually swimming in. I will be making these again.

This recipe was a nice suprise! The sweet dough is nice to work with and versatile. You don't even miss the butter in the cinnamon mix either. Thank you so much.
