I've had the recipe for these crispy cinnamon-sugar roll-ups for years. They're one of my family's favorites and so easy to make. We enjoy them at breakfast with a cup of coffee. —Emily Engel, Quill Lake, Saskatchewan

"We made this with our local baking group for our introduction meeting. They came out pretty bland, and seemed to need longer than 16-18 minutes. We definitely recommend the glaze, it is the redeeming factor of this recipe!"
