Even as a kid going to the local mall just smelling the scent of Cinnabons got me so excited that I could care less what dress I was about to buy. All I wanted was that Cinnamon Roll.

Fast forward to now instead of spending my money on someone else’s cinnamon rolls I decided to make my own. And man oh man I not sure if this was a good or bad idea because they were too yummy. My whole house was smelling of cinnamon. When my girlfriends came over and they smelled the home freshed Cinnamon Rolls they all made a Beeline straight to the kitchen and began digging in. Which I’m actually happy about cause if it was left up to just me I would have finished the whole pan and bikini season 2018 would have been over. Haha!

I’m very particular about my Cinnamon Rolls. I hate when it’s just all dough. When it’s dry not moist and with hardly any cinnamon. My Cinnamon Rolls are gooey, moist, extremely soft and buttery with plenty of cinnamon. If that sounds good to you follow my recipe below for The Best Cinnamon Roll Recipe Ever.
