Cheater Cinnamon Rolls (Easy Recipe Idea)
Love homemade cinnamon rolls, but not quite a fan of the work involved?
Here’s an easy shortcut that requires very little hands-on time in the kitchen and results in delicious warm and gooey cinnamon rolls from your oven at home!
In case you haven’t tried frozen bread dough, it tastes so much like homemade and is a great starter for cinnamon rolls. I also made a quick cream cheese glaze for the top, but you could use a different icing if desired. This is a great basic recipe that you can easily add to if your family prefers nuts and/or raisins etc.
