Kimmi's notes for this recipe:
Cinnabon + Cheesecake = PURE HEAVEN! I can't wait to make this one! I just got to find out where I can get the Cinnabon's (it just wont be the same with regular cinnamon buns - I think anyway)!

I think Pillsbury sells cinnabon rolls...sounds yummy!
user Kimmi Knippel (Sweet_Memories) KimmiK - Dec 2, 2011
They are not the same. They only use the cinnamon used in Cinnabon's.
user Jan W Neeniejan - Dec 2, 2011
oh! well, then you're going to have to find a place that sells the real ones...or maybe come up with a copycat recipe for them? did you check on the 'net?
