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!
These pretty cinnamon rolls are absolutely marvelous and taste just like the ones sold at the mall. Topped with a sweet cream cheese frosting, they're best served warm with steaming cups of coffee. Or reheat leftover rolls in the microwave and enjoy anytime of day.

Children of all ages will have a ball assembling these yummy treats that start with plain white bread and other fuss-free ingredients. "Cranberry sauce gives these appetizers lots of holiday appeal," notes Dorothy Pritchett from Wills Point, Texas.
Ethel Farnsworth of Yuma, Arizona shared this recipe when 4-H leaders requested an activity for younger members. "The kids had a ball rolling out the dough and enjoying the sweet chewy results," she informs.
"Basic white bread is spread with a sweet creamy filling to make this scrumptious roll-ups," explains Marie Delffs from her home in Shelbyville, Tennessee. "They're very easy to assemble yet taste extra special."
I've made batches of these rolls to give to the mail carrier for Christmas, to our church music minister for his birthday and for any number of people who needed a pick-me up. Thick cream cheese frosting is the fast finishing touch.
For a generous batch of gooey sticky buns in a hurry, Jean Edwards of Indianapolis, Indiana says that it doesn't get much easier than this recipe. "I enjoy giving these sweet treats to friends for a 'just because' gift," she notes. "They reheat in the microwave very well."
This recipe was my dad’s favorite growing up. He would sit and watch his mom sprinkle the dough with sweet filling, carefully roll it up and cut it into rounds. The anticipation waiting for them to come out of the oven was almost more than he could bear. —Jeanne Holt, Mendota Heights, Minnesota
