Cinnamon Rolls

Brunch Recipes | 0 comments

These are a little bit of trouble to prepare, but well worth it – they are yummy! If you like you can sprinkle some raisins and/or nuts over the filling before rolling up the roll. The icing on the top is optional, or you can replace it with a cream cheese frosting.
