Cinnamon Rolls remind me always Astrid Lindgren books. Warm and lovely childhood summers at my GrandmaThe softest, fluffiest homemade cinnamon roll ever! Loaded with cinnamon brown sugar … mmm..
This is one dish which came in Estonian cuisine from Scandinavia, but same as with all dishes, Estonian cinnamon rolls taste different as Swedish rolls.
