Gluten Free Cinnamon "Rolls" (w/cinnamon maple glaze)

So, I have been so excited lately with all the activity with my blog! I have been featured on Foodgawker, Tastespotting, and RecipesUS all in one week! I have also been getting a lot of attention on Pinterest! (The legit Cuisinart Pinterest pinned my GF chocolate cupcake recipe! So fun.) You guys have been repinning and pinning my recipes from my blog and other places :D Thank you so much! It gets me really excited. I have been enjoying trying new Paleo recipes. Anyway, I just recently tried this Cinnamon Roll Recipe from Paleo Indulgences, and it tasted great, but the whole roll part, didnt quite work out. It proved to be harder to actually make the dough into a roll, because you have to do when it its hot and droopy dough. So anyway, hopefully you will have better luck in that department. BUT it still was a wonderful and amazing breakfast treat. I decided to make this Cinnamon Maple Frosting, that is also in the book. Again, the consistency was super soft and not real frosting and fluffy like, but it turned out to be the perfect cinnamon roll glaze. So I did that instead. To think that all of this is dairy free and gluten free is crazy!! I mean it tastes so good! So try this out, I'm begging you.  It's amazing.
