The Best Frosted Apple Cinnamon Rolls

A PLEASANT SURPRISE AWAITS YOU WITH THESE CINNAMON ROLLS WRAPPED IN WARM APPLES WITH A BLANKET OF GOLDEN ICING   It smells so good in here already don’t you think?

Mind you we haven’t stopped sending cards but we have noticed the difference postage makes to our budget. I don’t miss opening a greeting card that comes in the post which eventually ends up being tossed in the garbage. My wife and I are always asking each other “How much is the price of a stamp?” but mostly for my International stamps.
