    PrimQuilter's Note:

    This came from an Amish cookbook I've had since 1990. Their breads are fabulous and their cinnamon rolls are out of this world. Sorry there is no icing recipe included here. They either forgot to submit or it's just their secret !

      My husband said these were OK but that he has tasted better. I had much trouble with this recipe. Dough is way to soft and so terribly sticky to roll out and up. Instead of rolling it on flour I rolled it on brown sugar and that did help a bit. I had problems with dough not rising in the 2 hours, mine took 3 1/2 in a warm kitchen. Some of the faults on this recipe could be my own fault. Hard to say. I followed the directions to the letter. The texture was not what I had expected or what I was looking for. In the end I would have to agree with my husband's comment. I'm sorry PrimQuilter.
