“These are the cinnamon rolls my elementary school served every Friday with bean chowder for lunch. I added to the name because they do bring back such sweet memories! *note* I'm not sure if the sizes on the yeast and powdered sugar are exactly right, zaar would not let me put them as just package or box.”
