I love making cinnamon buns as a house warming to ourselves. We have done a lot of moving recently and we will continue to for the next month.

When I saw this recipe I immediately thought of the cinnamon buns I’ll be making when we are finally done with all the moving. Of course, I had to make sure that they were up to snuff, so I had a great excuse to make them.
