chris' notes for this recipe:
This is a quick and easy fix for when you just have to have that cinnamony cake thing :) Most of the ingredients we already have on hand and throwing it together is no fuss and no muss! Great for a quick Sunday dessert or breakfast and also works well for those last minute school carry-to's that the kids forgot to tell us about til the night before.

Chris - I just made this for my daughter. My grandson decided on a brithday bunch this year and his mother always has to have cinnamon buns when I fix breakfast. They smell so very yummy!! I can't wait until morning!!! I know that they will taste just as good as they smell...I'll heat them up a little in the morning and then put the icing on them so they will warm fresh out of the oven yummy!!! Thanks so much for sharing!
