Frosted Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

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. -Velma Horton, LaGrange, California
