A Christmas Morning Treat – Cinnamon Buns

Peek-a-boo!  Can you see my buns?  ha haThis picture from last year is the only picture I have of them,
and as you can see they are a part of my family,
right in the Christmas unwrapping with everyone else!
Our Christmas is not complete without our ‘Land of Nod Cinnamon Buns’.  When the lights go out on Christmas Eve, these buns are yummily rising on my counter.   In the morning, the first thing I do is pop them in the oven, so they are ready to be eaten while we open our presents.   These are so yummy, and worth the effort to make.  Plus they make your house smell amazing!
