Light and Airy Cinnamon Rolls

Light and airy cinnamon rolls are exactly that, light and airy. I was super impressed with this recipe. It was fast and easy to prepare and the cinnamon rolls turned out fantastic. We dyed our cinnamon rolls in green and gold-ish after our favorite football team, the Green Bay Packers. I wasn’t real happy with the way the colors turned out but they were fantastic all the same.

Enjoy these light and airy cinnamon rolls for breakfast. They go perfectly with a hot cup of coffee. To me cinnamon rolls are a Saturday or Sunday special treat. Nothing better than sitting at the kitchen cupboard, with a cup of coffee in one hand and a cinnamon roll in the other hand, while reading the Sunday morning paper. This is my idea of starting the day off right.

Cinnamon Rolls

Cinnamon Rolls are one of my favorite early weekend morning indulgences. When I was growing up I didn’t like cinnamon rolls. My mom Aggie always bought those super dense, cakey rolls that came in a silver foil tray from the local bakery discount store. You know the kind. The super sweet white frosting was sometimes as thick as the gul-darned cinnamon rolls. Another thing, they never tasted very cinnamony to me either. Now, I don’t want to step on any toes here. If you’re a fan of that kind of cinnamon rolls, that’s super but after relishing in these light and airy cinnamon rolls, I can’t go back.
