Thank you to a friend for sharing this recipe on their Facebook page! I thought I remembered who it was, but couldn’t find the recipe later on. I tried! It didn’t hurt that cinnamon rolls already sounded good, then she posted an easy recipe like this! Monkey is only 6, but he did most of the work on these.
