Cinnamon Rolls

I am usually not a big fan of cinnamon rolls as my last experience consists of eating a cinnamon bun before hopping on a flight and, you can imagine the rest of the story. 🤓

But years have gone by and I decided to bake my own. There are so many cinnamon roll recipes on the web and I am aware that baking requires precision, but I still enjoy following my own intuition and go through trial and error, so I ended up creating my own. And surprisingly it was a success :) Soft, warm, perfect sweetness level, with a nice cream cheese cinnamon frosting.

Once rolls are baked, spread cream cheese frosting on top and enjoy.

    I have heard in order for yeast to activate all ingredients should be room temp and milk 110 degrees . Your thoughts ?

    What is the difference between tps of yeast as opposed to tsp in this recipe?
