Cinnamon rolls

中文菜谱: 肉桂红糖面包卷

Who can resist freshly bake cinnamon rolls?  I can’t.  For most the bread, I enjoy the process of making bread more than eating it.  But as for cinnamon rolls, I always enjoy baking and eating it afterwards with a cup of black coffee.

My husband’s company was hosting a potluck party.  I made a big box of cinnamon rolls for him.  The recipe is by Paula Deen from foodnetwork.  The aroma during baking made the whole house smell like Christmas Eve.  Fantastic!
