Perfect Cinnamon Rolls are on my list for a long time - this recipe I am sharing now is perfect,no-fail recipe of Cinnamon Rolls.
Breakfast and Dessert recipe is so easy to fix when you try this,and won't disappoint you.

I remember eating these first time in a small town bakery/ cake shop ,these were perfectly warmish and dripping with Cream Cheese Glaze.
The cream cheese glaze that normally you will find on most Cinnamon Rolls is a little thick and spreadable quality,but I made a little thin glaze ,which was actually dripping from the sides of the rolls and was melting instantly on the hot rolls.

Recently I have shared few recipes that might interest you,if you are visiting my blog for the first time: Olive Garden Copycat Fettuccine Alfredo, Panda Express Copycat Black Pepper Chicken, Nashville Style Hot Chicken Burger, Cajun Shrimp Pasta , Pad Thai Noodles , Sesame Chicken ,Churros.

Can I refrigerate to consume later? 

Yes. These taste better either warm or cold,as per personal choice enjoy them as you like it.

Can I make them without Egg?

I prefer adding egg to most of my bakes,as the egg gives a great texture to the final dish.But you can skip egg in this recipe and try.I do not think it would make much of a difference but you can also go for any egg substitutes if you like.

How long can these be refrigerated?

We consumed them in three days,but I am sure they will hold up well for 4-5 days without any problems if refrigerated.

What if I do not have Stand Mixer or Hand Mixer? Can I made dough with hands?

Yes of course! I prefer making the dough mostly with hands than in mixers.But they are for convenience and ease.So use your hands if you do not have any kitchen dough mixers.
