“I found this recipe on the Betty Crocker website and decided to give it a go for a church bake sale. They were AWESOME! They dough consists of three ingredients and they cinnamon sugar coating is just two. They come together easily and make enough to feed a crowd. I hope you like them as much as we did! (COOK TIME IS PER BATCH)”
