90 Minute Cinnamon Rolls - Recipe

The boys are on a cinnamon bun roll lately and I wanted to make something for them to have for breakfast that was special.

This recipe I copied from some magazine a few years ago but never tried it out.

I opted to make them the night before to save a bit of time; you never know how crazy that first morning of school can be.

They were really easy to make and I have to say really, really yummy!

They are not heavy nor are they overly sweet as some cinnamon buns tend to be.

The boys did not eat them this morning.

Nate said, “They taste that much sweeter when you get home after a rough day at school and I can enjoy them a lot more.”

Spence said, “Don’t want to eat too much the first day back and all.”

Guess I will get their opinions once they try them.

They really do not need any sugar drizzled over top they create their own syrup.

mmm… so good!
