Sin Buns Recipe (Easy Cinnamon Buns)

I made you something. I know that I have been promising you this recipe for about a million years. So it is finally here. In my defense, every time I made some to take photos for you, we ate them before I could photograph them. So this time I was smart and made them secretly, quickly snapped some photos, and months later am finally sharing this with you.

These won't disappoint. Easy, delicious, and basically a food group in my humble opinion.

Love to you!
