Cinnamon Rolls!

I have two words for this cinnamon roll recipe. 
Ultra Divine! 
I might have forgotten to add the eggs the recipe call for and burned the first batch, but my goodness! The second batch was sublime! 
Fresh from the oven. 

I found the recipe in foodgawker of course! (Who still won't accept any picture I try to post...) but that doesn't keep me from gawking at the delicious pictures other users post. 
This particular recipe comes from foodblogger:
Whom I give full credit for today's success!
Her instructions were easy to follow, and I must stress how brilliant her explanation for the frosting was! 

Of course, being the person that I am... I changed this up a bit when I decided to make the rolls. 

First off, I didn't add eggs  (2 eggs) not because I didn't want to, but because I forgot! 
This didn't seem to disrupt the recipe nor the taste. 
Second thing I changed was the time I allowed the dough to rise, which was less than an hour... 
And I added a little more time for the second rise (about 15 minutes)
For the frosting I reduced the time of beating, because I just couldn't wait to try them! And I added Vanilla beans instead of vanilla essence and Lemon zest instead of vanilla flavour. 
I think it works great. 

Let me know what you think!
