Notes from the Test Kitchen:

    These look fantastic. I was wondering if you have ever halved the recipe? Just two at home and I really don't need to bake 24...:)

    We have just two of us at home too but when I make a batch of cinnamon rolls, I freeze them indivdually in resealable plastic bags and just take out as many as we need. Works great for when company stops by for coffee and you need something quick. Just 30 seconds in the microwave and their fresh as when they were first baked.
