About Me!

Hi, thanks for stopping by, my name is Anna Kosti and I am 18 years old. I live in Larnaca, Cyprus, with my family and I am still going to high school. I fell in love with baking since the age of 9! I started with simple recipes to making complicated and fascinating desserts. I am planning to join university next year, overseas, to become a professional pastry chef.

These are the fluffiest Cinnamon Rolls ever! Super soft, fluffy and delicious! After trying this recipe you will never go back to another one!

They start off with a fluffy and sweet homemade dough that you will then combine with a cinnamon & sugar filling. Also, then its topped with a creamy cream cheese glaze that makes these cinnamon rolls even more tasty & delicious.

These Cinnamon Rolls can be stored in an airtight container for up to 5 days or in the fridge covered with plastic wrap. This will help them stay moist and fluffy without hardening. You can also microwave it for 30 seconds before serving for better results.
