These golden buns, with a light seasoning from cinnamon and allspice, were a family Easter tradition. My mom made them only once a year using her mother's recipe. Icing crosses make a tasty topping and reflect the meaning of the holiday.

On special occasions when we were growing up, my mother would make as many as four batches of these delicious cinnamon rolls to satisfy the appetites of her eight ravenous children. Today this recipe is still a hit.
Dried cranberries add holiday flair to these special rolls made from convenient frozen bread dough. "My husband loves marmalade, so when I spotted this recipe that used it as icing, I knew I had to try it," relates Margaret Wilson of Hemet, California. "Now it's one of his favorites."
I absolutely love bacon! I also love recipes that blend sweet and savory flavors, so I put chopped bacon in traditional cinnamon buns for a finger-licking-good combination. —Danielle Williams, Newport, Rhode Island
