Family Favorite Cinnamon Rolls

 

This is by far our favorite cinnamon roll recipe. We love how ooey-gooey they are, and I’m not going to lie, I have tried other recipes and my kids get really frustrated with me. That is why I am posting this recipe right now.

I usually double the recipe and one pan gets raisins and one pan doesn’t. We are a mixed family when it comes to raisins.

 

 

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, you just might want to make your favorite person that does so much for you some Family Favorite Cinnamon Rolls.  These family favorite cinnamon rolls work up in about 2 hours. I even like to make them the night before and then in the morning get up and then roll them out.
