Raise your hand if you love cinnamon rolls! I am going to assume that everyone’s hand is raised, because cinnamon rolls are delicious and I refuse to accept that there are humans on this planet that think otherwise. However, as much as we love a good ol’ cinnamon roll, we wanted to try something a little different, so we decided to try a recipe for strawberry rolls! They were a success! You could really fill them with any kind of fruit/jam you wanted, but we happen to love strawberries, so we used those. But you could get really creative with these if you wanted.  In our opinion, these rolls are perfect for breakfast or dessert.  So give them a try!
