The Pioneer Woman's Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

Ok i think you got it..This recipe is adapted from the famous pioneer woman's blog. And it was a huge hit in my place. You got to try it out to believe my words.

And i thought to give a experiment and substituted regular all purpose flour to whole wheat flour. The result was not that success. The rolls turned out little dense. But the taste was good. I strongly recommend you to give it a try with regular flour, so you will get softer and yummier rolls. Try it out and let me know how they turn out.
