Just Like Cinnabon Rolls

My sister and I used to have a cinnabon roll for lunch when we were out shopping. Walking in a shop and smelling the aroma of these rolls brings back wonderful memories. If you have never had a cinnabon roll, you are in for a delicious treat.

My hubby and I love these!! I can feel my teeth rotting and the pounds being added on with each one. But so good!!!

We never shop at the mall but we do make special trips just to get these! We will go and get an Aunt Annie's pretzel and lemonade then pick up some rolls before we leave.

I will have to try this when I get some spare time. TFS!!!!
