Oooey Gooey Cinnamon Rolls….


One of the first things I wanted to learn how to make when I started making my own bread was cinnamon rolls.  I have a serious weakness when it comes to these little rolls of sugary delight.  It took me a couple of attempts but now they have become a family favorite.  I make them at least a couple of times a month.




Here is what you will need:

1 batch of Yeast dough

1 stick of butter

1-2 cups granulated sugar




1 stick butter

2 cups powdered sugar

1 tsp. Vanilla
