Cinnamon rolls are a sneaky way to eat dessert for breakfast. When I was little, the only way my mom got me out of bed for school was baking her famous homemade cinnamon rolls. Immediately, I would smell them and sprint to the kitchen. Now that I'm older, I try to #adult by eating healthy and not eat overly sugary foods for breakfast. But sometimes, I just have to make a batch of cinnamon rolls to satisfy my cravings. 

Sorry mom, but nobody has time to make cinnamon rolls from scratch (and if you do, props to you). But for the rest of us, let's stick to the Pillsbury cinnamon rolls. There's so much more that can be done with tube of cinnamon rolls than just baking them. Here are 10 Pillsbury cinnamon roll recipes that will change the way you look at this breakfast treat.
