Good cinnamon rolls. The kids and I loved making these. Great Taste. Great Smell. Great family time.
I could drown in Ann Sathers cinnamon rolls and would still pop back up the next day for more!
I LOOOOVE Ann Sather's cinnamon rolls! And for many years, the recipe was a guarded secret, but no mone. However, what Hey Jude didn't tell you here is that the actual recipe for these cinnamon rolls, contributed by present Ann Sather owner and Chicago alderman Tom Tunney and from which this recipe is derived, ran a few days earlier in the Chicago Tribune Sunday magazine on January 11, 2004, p. 25, in an interview article by food writer William Rice, headlined "On a roll - for the proprietor of Ann Sather, success has been sweet." Because of copyright and Mr. Tunney's ownership of the recipe, full credit should have been given when this recipe was posted. If you have any doubts about how this recipe turned out for you, consult the original article, using this citation and the advanced search function at www.chicagotribune.com -- you'll have to dig it up from the archives. It scans like just about the same recipe, but I haven't checked every last detail. You should, if you're going to make these rolls.
Being from Chicago I know that Ann Sather's has wonderful rolls, but these just didn't turn out. I am an experienced baker and had no luck with this recipe - the dough was WAY too soft and very hard to work with (and that was after adding lots of extra flour). They weren't the light and fluffy rolls that I remember! Try this method, with the dough from Amish White Bread and you'll be much happier.
