A friend called one morning to see if I wanted company for coffee. I was going to make biscuits for breakfast but wanted something fancier to share. So I quickly turned those biscuits into hot cinnamon rolls. Was my friend impressed when she arrived to the sweet aroma!

"I have already made this recipe twice for my family and we love it! My boys are young so I halved the recipe to fit our needs and that worked great."

"They were "okay"...this is what my husband said. I did not like the tasted too much like a biscuit and the dough was not easy to handle. They were very easy to make, but I think I will set aside the time the next time I make sweet rolls."
