This month for the Secret Recipe club I got Janie of Fantastical Sharing of Recipes. She is the organizer between the scenes for Group D.
I almost picked her Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte Copycat Recipe. After all it is the season for pumpkin and I do love me a good Pumpkin Spice Latter but then I eyed her copycat recipe for Cinnabun Cinnamon Rolls.
I love Cinnabun Cinnamon Rolls. See I used to go to Maine most summers to see family when I still lived in Iowa. Most flights for us went through O'Hara in Chicago. Not only was I excited to go to Maine but most times I was able to convince my mom(or maybe she didn't need too much convincing) to get a Cinnamon Roll from Cinnabun at the airport. This was sum twenty years ago (Am I really that old?) when they weren't all over the malls like they are today. Cinnabun was so super special to me. With Janie's recipe I could make them at home, where I can have five at once without paying whatever ridiculous cost they charge. It is a dream come true.

From the long end, roll the dough up tightly. Pinch the seams. Cut into 1 3/4 inch slices.
