The time starts when you wake up and it is dark. You come home from work and it ist dark. And you start to wonder if it ever got light out in between.
Time to spice up your life. These cinnamon rolls will help to lighten the mood of even the drizzliest fall weather.
I used just cinnamon in this recipe but it’s always nice to change things up. Feel free to add a pinch nutmeg or use pumpkin/gingerbread spice instead for a stronger christmas feeling :)
