  1. You call these cinnamon rolls but there is no cinnamon in the recipe. However, these sound amazing and I will make them this weekend! Thanks for sharing.

  2. The rolls were delicious, we really enjoyed them. My only thing to tell you is that the recipe for the glaze makes way too much! I only used a third of the glaze and am freezing the rest for another time. But it was very good!
