Warm Cinnamon Swirls

They are simple and easy and you likely could figure these out without a recipe. But, I thought I would post about them anyway. They are a great little fall treat and perfect with a coffee, hot cocoa or hot tea.

  1. my mom and I used to do this all the time when I was a little girl with leftover dough at christmas time!!! thanks for posting this :)I had a burrito two nights ago ( I LOVE Mexican food and my husband hates it) and last night he told me he was craving a burrito. I thought I might die of shock/happiness! :o)

  2. So you dont use brown sugar? I’ve never made cinnamon rolls but I guess I always assumed it was brown sugar…sounds super yummy and easy!!! I am also pregnant (32 wks) and I agree with the husband cravings…

  3. My mother has made these as her home made cinnamon rolls my entire life. Except she makes them with crescent rolls. I stumbled upon a similar recipe I make using puff pastry dough… SO GOOD, but even easier! No butter necessary

  4. Wow – My mom used to make these when I was a kid from whatever pie crust dough was left after making a pie! I didn’t realize anyone else ever made these!!
