I really enjoy making breakfast on the weekends for my guys but sometimes I run out of ideas for things to make.  You know how it is.  You want to make something tasty and hearty but you’ve made the same few things over and over for months on end and then you find an awesome new recipe that you give a try and it turns out even better than you expected.  That’s what happened this weekend.  Cinnamon rolls are one of my family’s favorite sweet treats so I knew this would be a hit.

I bought a big box of Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls at Sam’s Club and found this recipe on the back ~ I am so glad I made it.   I changed the recipe up just slightly from the original omitting the nuts, some of the additional syrup and the powdered sugar – no need to have a sugar OVERLOAD!
