This is not your average brownie. It is soft and dense and delicately spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger. The top of the brownie is then generously sprinkled with cinnamon sugar.

It’s finally mid-March and spring is just around the corner (or so I’m telling myself). The weather this past week has been crazy! Monday started off nice, with temperatures in the upper 40’s.

Quick and easy, Mini Cinnamon Rolls are made without yeast, so they can be prepared in minutes. Since there is no yeast in the recipe, there is no need for kneading and proofing.

To make it easier to understand how to make these homemade cinnamon roll bites, I included several photos of step-by-step process. more......more

Since I added a super sweet glaze, I was able to cut a lot of sugar out of the dough and the rolls, and you can't even tell!http://lisagcooks.com/lisa-g-news/cinnamon-buns-with-a-sticky-yummy-unforgettable-glaze-that-makes-you-glad-youre-alive-glaze/...more
