    I make cinnamon rolls often, and these sound great. I wonder if it would be less labor intensive to roll out the dough, sprinkle the cinnamon on, then roll and slice? This is how I do cinnamon rolls, and as I have dexterity issues I wonder if this would work.

    Also, chilling the dough briefly might help make it less sticky.

    Just made these tonight and they were SO YUMMY! ๐Ÿ™‚ We are a gluten free house, so I used Cherrybrook Kitchen’s GF Sugar Cookie Mix -it’s Dairy Free too! – and it rocked! Thank you so much for all you do ๐Ÿ™‚ (Oh, I got the mix at a Super Target in case you want to make some GFDF ones!)
