Delicious Cinnamon Rolls!

Have you ever been to the mall and picked up the sweet, fresh smell of cinnamon rolls from the food court section? Or maybe, you came by late and the fresh ones are all gone. Well I have found a great solution!

Recently I had been going through some recipes to try out and seen one of my favorites, Cinnamon Rolls. This recipe originated from a woman who goes by “MISS ALIX.” This recipe had a 5 star review so I decided to try it myself. The ingredients were reasonable, and the instructions were simple to follow. The cinnamon rolls turned out perfectly cooked and golden brown, and beautiful.

“Here’s an easy alternative to buying those famous cinnamon rolls in the mall. They taste exactly the same, and the dough is made in the bread machine.”
