IntroductionThese are so sinfully good you don't want to make these more than once or twice a year, but as Cinnabon had been a long standing tradition in our family we have to indulge in this luxury while overseas and nowhere near a Cinnabon.

I used to work at Cinnabon in high school, and this is as close to Cinnabon a get! Very tasty, and this is the EXACT process used to make them. Proofing the dough correctly is very important to the taste of the rolls. Check you oven settings, you may need to bake at a lower temp. Wonderful! - 1/7/12
