It’s no secret that i enjoy a good treat. I think I inherited this giant sweet tooth from my dad’s side of the family….okay and maybe my mom’s (my grandpa on that side makes the best fudge everrrrr). probably not the greatest trait, but i think enjoying a good dessert or celebrating with one every now and then is not something to cry over. especially if you are active and are maintaining a healthy lifestyle! all things in moderation, always.
i’ve been wanting to share these cinnamon rolls since the first time my mouth sunk into one of these soft yummy desserts. my mom found the recipe in a Cook’s Country magazine (Oct/Nov 2013). and she first made them as part of a breakfast for my family, right after i ran my first half marathon. after that run they were almost too sweet for me to handle, and i think i remember taking about 4 bites before i had to stop (crazy running stomach!). but i loved them and have had my mom make them over and over for me (haha! yes she is so great like that).
the past week i have been craving them yet again and so i busted out a batch myself. i also rewrote out the instructions for these, that you can download below (recipe prints out on a standard 8.5×11 inch piece of paper).
Here’s a pic of the original recipe if you wanted to see:
