mama's cinnamon rolls

These are simple cinnamon rolls. They are NOT sticky buns. You can make a simple glaze of powdered sugar mixed with a tiny bit of milk. They freeze well after baked. I warm them from frozen in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Some of these photos were taken in my kitchen and some were taken at Mama's last summer when she made them for me.
