Almost every morning, our cinnamon rolls were gone in less than one hour after opening the doors. People would drive from all over the area on a saturday to eat them. They are soft & gooey & absolutely delicious! I am not a very experienced baker, unlike my husband, and I can make these taste just like the way we use to make them at our shop. So if I can do this, anyone can! I will never forget being so tired of working 18 hours a day 6 days a week. One morning as I was walking into the bakery to open the front doors, the sun was coming up and I smelled my Grandma Fanny's kitchen .....it was the smell of our cinnamon rolls bellowing out the door. My Grandma Fanny was famous for her cinnamon rolls and I thought at that moment it was her saying..."Keep up the hard work. Hang in there!" I hope these will fill your kitchen with sweet smells & possibly memories of your childhood. Enjoy!
