When I was younger, Christmas for us began at 4am- we would open presents, then head to my Grandma’s house where we would spend the rest of the day with family. My grandma would always have delicious cinnamon rolls waiting for us when we got there and because she made so many we would eat cinnamon rolls pretty much the entire day! We’d play with our cousins and take a cinnamon roll break even at 2 in the afternoon! I’ve carried on the tradition of cinnamon rolls on Christmas morning with my family, and I am always trying new recipes. I LOVE CINNAMON ROLLS and rarely find a recipe I do not like.
