One my all time favorite sweet treats is the cinnamon roll. I have fond memories of watching my great grandmother roll out dough and make cinnamon rolls on our kitchen counter when she lived with us when I was a child. When you say cinnamon rolls, everyone in my family thinks of Grandma Josie, which might be why we love them so much. I’m not sure I’ll ever live up to her level of cinnamon roll mastery, but I have certainly made my share of cinnamon rolls and I am always looking for a great new cinnamon roll recipe.
