Easter Breakfast

First of all, thank you soooo much for these.  It means a lot, seriously!  Well...I haven't posted a recipe in forever.  And actually I wanted to share this one last April.  haha!  Anyways it's the BEST cinnamon roll recipe you will ever try- I LOVE these!  Thank you to my friend at church who brought some over one day!  I love cinnamon rolls in general, it's a great excuse for dessert for breakfast, without the guilt you'd have if you ate a fat piece of chocolate cake.(;

You gotta try these... I made them for breakfast on Easter, and as always, they were a hit.
(enjoy these pictures from last year when I made them for conference;)
