the best giant fluffy cinnamon roll recipe by Rosevine Cottage Girls

Cinnamon Rolls

We made this cinnamon roll recipe for an equine obstacle course we were hired to cater several summers ago and let’s put it this way…none ever came home. They are super easy to make and absolutely amazing! Seriously these are the best cinnamon rolls EVER!

One of the event hosts loved them so much that he took the whole tray and stuck it in his truck for “safekeeping”. These cinnamon rolls are yummy cold, and amazing hot fresh from the oven and the icing… well let’s say it is memorable! Our host said that there is never enough icing on cinnamon rolls but these ones are great. This was coming from a professional baker and cake decorator.
