  1. These didn’t make it to the freezer. It’s now my go-to recipe for Cinnamon Rolls. I’ve been searching for a recipe for homemade buns that didn’t take hours of kneading and rising for almost three years. The testing half-batch was done from start to finish in twenty minutes. Since I keep everything but Cresent Rolls on hand this was dirt cheap to make (less than $3 for 32).The only thing I’ll change is how I handle the filling. Making it as instructed resulted in a gooey delicious mess oozing out the sides as I rolled them up. Next time I’ll make a spreadable paste with softened butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon. I’ll spread it on and cut the strips flat so I can roll them tight.

  2. Delish!
    I made these for my daycare kids and they ate them right up. Now I am trying a pizza version with a little pizza sauce and cheese. They will love them!

  3. Do you have the link for the homemade version of crescent rolls? I’ve seen it before, but can’t find it now. Thanks πŸ™‚ these will be made this weekend!
