The Best Cinnamon Roll Recipe
I have a total weakness for pastries and breads. Truly, I am worse than a kid in a candy store. I have gotten better, but, I still really love warm delicious cinnamon rolls, freshly baked cookies, and chocolate croissants. So, I was sitting at home this weekend, craving all the goodness that is a homemade cinnamon roll, and I decided to just go for it. I was going to make my own cinnamon rolls. And while I love pastries, I am really not so good at making them sometimes, especially treats with yeast. But, y’all, I was on a high from making ah-maz-ing homemade pizza dough, and I believed I could make anything! And, guys, I made the BEST cinnamon rolls FROM SCRATCH!

Easy Cinnamon Roll Recipe:
I’m not gonna lie, I was totally intimidated by the thought of making these cinnamon buns, but, I.DID.IT! It was a lot easier than I expected it to be, and they are as yummy and cinnamony gooey as I could have ever hoped!
How to Make the Best Cinnamon Rolls:
Cinnamon Rolls are a lot easier to make than I thought they would be, and I will definitely be making this recipe again very soon! Even though many recipes are time consuming, most of the time is waiting for the dough to proof.
I decided to substitute Jackson Morgan Southern Cream in place of milk and cream in my recipe for a richer flavor profile. You can certainly make this recipe with cream instead. Jackson Morgan Cream is one of my favorite drinks, to drink, mix in drinks, and even cook and bake with. It’s smooth and rich, and truly can be enjoyed on it’s own or in a recipe!
