Recipe: Basic Cinnamon Rolls

I love cinnamon rolls plain but you can frost these babies too. I used a basic butter butter cream but you can frost with cream cheese if you’re feeling that instead. This is a great recipe which actually takes about 15 active minutes of doing anything, it’s a lot of waiting but of course when you come out with soft, gooey cinnamon rolls it’s worth the wait!
