Homemade Cinnamon Swirls
Only 15 Minutes!

Kids love to help with making and eating these fantastic Cinnamon swirls.

Our 4 year old makes these cinnamon buns virtually on his own. He calls them his 'swirlies'. We all love this snack, and they are so tasty that they hardly ever last to the end of the day--and that is when we make a double portion! This is a quick cinnamon bun recipe that takes 15 minutes prep time and 12 minutes to bake in the oven. A nice cream cheese frosting, adds a little extra sweetness. We will show you the 4 steps needed to prepare these great 'swirlie' snacks.

Enjoy this cinnamon bun recipe as a treat for the whole family.
