Umm, yeah… these are a game changer.  We made really yummy cinnamon rolls in pastry school, but they are seriously involved.  And obviously, while delectable, they were not by any means healthy.  Now it still might be a stretch to call these health food (especially when you drown them in maple as I do), but
