Meet Our New Obsession: Pancake Cinnamon Rolls
Quick Kelly life update folks: I went to my very first bachelorette party! My beautiful cousin is getting married, and a couple weekends ago we celebrated in San Diego with beach time, rosé, scavenger hunts and brunch. Our weekend brunch spot was known for their killer mimosas and pancake cinnamon rolls. Of course I ordered both and have been dreaming about them ever since. I took these pancake cinnamon rolls a step further by making cinnamon pancakes, filling them with cinnamon roll goodness and then rolling them up and topping with cream cheese frosting. Enjoy!

— 2 1/2 cups milk
