Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

If you are a fan of sweets you probably enjoy cinnamon rolls. I used to just buy them from the store but I decided to try making them at home. The results were fantastic. This is a bread machine recipe, so the bread machine does all the hard work for you. I have also included a recipe for the glaze, after all, what would cinnamon rolls be without the glaze? You can do the prep work and refrigerate them overnight if you want to bake them in the morning for breakfast. If you are new to making cinnamon rolls, don’t worry, these are very easy to make. With this article, you are sure to impress your family and friends with this delicious treat. Enjoy.

(Makes About 9 Rolls)

I made these tonight with this recipe. I didnt have a bread machine so i mixed it into a dough by hand and it worked out just as good. I put photos of my cinnamon rolls on facebook, and i added crushed almonds to the glaze. They are so yummy!!

WE LOVED IT! I made these for the first day of school and my son the cinnamon roll expert LOVED them. I also made them for the office staff at school and they loved them.

Now, I'm making them for Christmas morning. (Along with Biscuits and Gravy & French toast). I just have to be awake EARLY!
