Definitely the cinnamon one. =) Are you kiddin? I'm a sucker for pastry carbs! LOL! Sounds kinda like a different form for a cinnamon roll without the icing.

Well a cinnamon roll is soft. These come out flaky... gosh I want some... the Cheoreg is the best though. I love Cheoreg.

Nothing like talking about food to make ya want some eh? lol

Is the Cheoreg a sweet bread? The ingredients seem like the same for the bread my dad makes without the (orange rind or nuts though) that we have for Easter breakfast, out of an Italian cookbook. At least from what I've observed...I haven't made it, that's his job! =D So yummy.

It is highly possible that they are similar. A lot of Armenian food is similar to Greek food and well Greece is pretty darn close to Italy.
