cinnamon rolls

Bee has been asking all week for cinnamon rolls for breakfast. Lou and I got up a little early this morning so we could make some before church. I thought Bee would get up and help. She rolled out of bed just in time to eat the first finished roll. convenient, huh? I got this delish cinnamon roll recipe from taste of home magazine. It started as one of those potluck sized recipe and made 4 dozen. This is a half recipe and makes about 2 dozen depending on size. I make the larger recipe every time the youth group has a lock in. Teenagers eat so much!

Lou kept pinching at the dough to take 'bites'. He loves dough. blah.

We made one batch with raisins and one without. I don't know why you'd want them without, but to each their own.

I usually just slice with a knife but today I used a piece of string. I like the results.

They smelled so good.

We delivered a few to friends at church this morning and ate more than we should have ourselves. We sent a few off to my sister in IN. College may be the one time in your life that people send you food in the mail.
