Sinful Cinnamon Rolls

Cinnamon rolls are a classic dessert and happen to be one of my favorites. The thought of cinnamon, brown sugar and butter is as attractive as a Reese’s peanut butter cup. The pairing of ingredients just works. The aroma takes over the house and sends an inviting welcome to visitors and even neighbors.

Their warm and fluffy texture acts as a pillow for the cream cheese frosting and you can taste cinnamon in every bite. In my house these delicious rolls are accounted for before they are finished baking. My family stands in line, waiting anxiously for the timer to end. Enjoy these delicious treats any time of day with a cup of coffee or tea.


Cinnamon is a one of the oldest and most popular household spices used in many homes today. The spice is found in forms such as powdered, sticks and leaves. It is a spice that my grandmother, mother, aunts and now I use for a variety of recipes.

Although cinnamon is well known and used as a spice it possesses a host of health benefits that many might be unaware of. Drinking it as tea is a great aid for various stomachs discomfort. I use cinnamon to treat nausea, vomiting, cold, diarrhea and digestive problems. I have also known people to use cinnamon to help regulate their blood sugar.

Cinnamon is so versatile and I incorporate it in an array of dishes, baked good or drinks. It is a spice that is commonly used around the holiday season due to its warm yet spicy smell. Next time your feeling cold, brew a cup of cinnamon tea with a teaspoon of honey or sweetener of choice and it will make you warm all over; inside and out.
