Cinnamon rolls

I discovered cinnamon rolls very recently, after a couple of years I was in the UK.

The first time I tried one I wasn’t even impressed, I found it very dry and heavy.

My friends couldn’t accept it and they made sure I had a proper cinnamon roll sharing like 100 recipes with me. After several (and mean like one thousand) attempts, I finally managed to create the perfect recipe and it changed everything!

So here I am, sharing with you the recipe that made me change my mind about cinnamon rolls!
