You say, “Without question the yummiest cinnamon roll around. We had a pan on Christmas Morning and present opening halted- in fact came to a screeching halt when they came out of the oven!!!!!” and “If I can’t make them, then Dutch Monkey in Cumming must. They will even make them for you and send them home for you to bake! That’s the way to get that delicious cinnamon smell!”

OUR PICKS
1. Gabriel’s
The AJC dining team’s specialist in Southern and Neighborhood Fare Jenny Turknett says, “ Gabriel’s, the cinnamon rolls sit amongst sweet delicacies of every sort, but don’t let your eyes glaze over this no-so-little pastry. Thin layers of dough envelope the cinnamon filling, which is none too sweet. The sugary hit comes from the graceful dollops of smooth white icing on top.”

Highland Bakery has the best cinammon rolls. The icing is tasty. The rolls come in 2 sizes, but they are so delicious, you will want to order the large!

Sorry folks. I know there are a lot of great CR’s out there but none, and I mean NONE, compare to my wife’s. This year she made about two dozen pans for friends, family and customers! And every last one of them made from scratch from a recipe that’s been handed down for several generations! Yuuuuummmm!

My Mom made the absolute best CR’s. I remember coming home from school and the CR’s rising on the kitchen table and stove and everywhere there was an empty space. And then them baking in the oven, OMG.. the smell of those rolls baking, nothing better than homemade CR’s..they didn’t last long with 6 kids..

I order/get my CRs from Tage (Treats and Good Eats) at http://www.tagetreats.com and take them to clients. They have different varieties including Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Delight, Apple Turnover, and my favorite Toasted Almond (yep, Kahlua and Baileys icing – yum!)

Yummy to my tummy
