“i found this here http://lobsterandfishsticks.com/2009/08/25/lowfat-cinnamon-rolls/ and they sound pretty tasty and look pretty good, i love the idea of replacing the butter in the filling with applesauce. i hope i have time to try it sometime soon. the baking time looks awfully short though so that may need to change.”
