Cinnamon Rolls
Better than most cinnamon rolls you have eaten. Cinnamon rolls are very easy to make and are always a favorite dessert. Start with sweet yeast dough that is light and rich tasting. The dough is rolled out, spread with a cinnamon sugar filling, and then rolled up like a jelly roll. Next slice into rolls, bake, spread a confectioners sugar glaze on top, and they are ready to eat. Yummy.
