Cassandra Knepshield of My Adventures in Treasure Hunting joins us today with a yummy recipe for Almost Cinnamon Rolls.

—————————————————-

Have you ever been hungry for something such as a specific dessert and started searching for a recipe, trying the recipe and it just isn’t working? Well, let me tell you, that was me Sunday! Enjoying a cozy weekend at home, not loving every bit of this cold, freezing, snowy weather. I was hungry for a Cinnamon Roll from the time I opened my eyes that morning!

I am a newbie cook/baker, but I love to bake! I haven’t quite mastered the art of anything with yeast/bread etc. So, after trying to get the yeast started twice and giving up, I was on the hunt for a new recipe! I stumbled on one and went for it!  It turned out delicious! It tastes just like a Pillsbury Cinnamon Roll from the can, minus all the extra ingredients. My hubby loved it! It was a success!

  • ½ cup (1 stick) real butter, melted
  • Topping
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 Tsp. Cinnamon (I added a little extra for more cinnamon flavor)

  3. 3. Next mix the cinnamon, brown sugar and flour and use a knife to swirl it in the batter.
  4. 4. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 – 30 minutes. Checking it at 20 min. as all ovens are different.
