What Waffle Maker to Use

I used my Cuisinart waffle maker to cook my cinnamon rolls. I like it because it’s not too big and not too small, it’s just right, LOL! This recipe should work in any waffle iron. If your waffle maker is larger or a Belgian style, you may need to roll more cinnamon rolls together or use the jumbo cinnamon rolls. Every waffle iron will perform differently, of course, but these cinnamon roll waffles are pretty easy to adapt.
