I LOVE these rolls, unfortunately they don't have a store anywhere near my house but luckily I stumbled upon a copycat recipe. I'm not allowed to make any other cinnamon roll!

- Cool in pans 10 minutes and invert to wire racks, invert again to cool.

Good recipe, but not an exact replica. I added a touch of nutmeg and all spice to the flour on my second attempt. That got it a little closer!
