Cinnamon Rolls

I can tell ; after chocolate ,cinnamon comes for me .I try to use it as much as i can in the kitchen .While preparing this recipe, i also think myself ; maybe there are some other ways to use cinnamon in our kitchens ,except adding it to cookies or sprinkle it onto crumbles .So I made a small research and wanted to share it with you ..

Well ,we all, mostly use cinnamon for desserts but you will find a short list where you can inspire or start to use cinnamon in different ares .

You can make your own cinnamon ice cream or yogurt .(never tried this before but definitely will .)
Add cinnamon to cereals .
Sprinkle cinnamon onto hot chocolate or milk .
Make a tea out of cinnamon sticks .
Sprinkle cinnamon over fried bread dipped in beaten egg.
Use for marinades for lamb or beef .
Use cinnamon in a mulled wine recipe.
Use cinnamon for hot beef curries .
and the rest depends your imagination and experiments ..

This time  I used this warming ,sweet ,exotic spice in heavenly rolls ...:)
