Breadmaking takes FOREVER! When I’m making something like cinnamon rolls, I like shortcuts. I started making Crescent Roll Cream Cheese Cinnamon Rolls. They taste amazing and much better than any canned cinnamon rolls, and they are so dang easy to make. You get to skip the whole making the dough and letting it rises a million times.
