Christmas Tradition: THRIVE Caramel Apple Cinnamon Roll Breakfast


THRIVE Caramel Apple Cinnamon Rolls

Family ritual and tradition have an important place in our lives.  This is one tradition that has evolved over time.  Yes, from the dough boy in the can, to finding a healthy alternative, to finding a Christmas morning treat, here is one we love.  If there were say, a snowstorm and you were house bound.  This would certainly delight.  Pantry ingredients except the naval orange slices, but in a pinch jar of grapefruit sections or whatever you might have on hand would do. I prefer the whole wheat version.  This is our latest incarnation from THRIVE and a little help from  The Pioneer Woman Cooks.
