These are one of the and softest and best homemade cinnamon rolls ever. They taste divine and the smell when they come out of the oven is irresistible. This is a must-try recipe and taste the best when they come hot out of the oven. The dough is a bit wet & sticky to work with and that is how we need it, do not add extra flour. You can even make a glaze to top the cinnamon rolls but its completely fine if you want to have plain cinnamon rolls. I have made a simple sugar glaze here but you can add in 2 tablespoons of cream cheese to get a cream cheese glaze.
