“Nothing beats cinnamon rolls fresh out of the oven in the morning! This was inspired after eating Nurse Di's Tiny Cinnamon Rolls. I didn't have Crescent rolls but was craving cinnamon rolls and wanted to use ingredients I had on hand. These turned out to be light and buttery and the cinnamon-sugar filling made these rolls really YUMMY.”
