    I have made cinnamon rolls for years. I have never put oats in the filling. I have never poured cream over them while baking. Now I want to go home and bake. These look so good!

    Those look good enough to eat. But without trying them myself, I can't give a quality comment on how good they actually are. So if you could send me a dozen or two, I could post a more accurate comment about their taste. I will wait...
