    Rav's Note:

    This recipe was a campus "secret" at my old university - thankfully one of the food service employees gave it up and I have been using it ever since. These are the big, soft kind (where the centre is so moist and yummy!!!). I sometimes add extra filling to mine. They can also be iced, but I like them just the way they are.

      They are very good! I only made half the recipe and I still made a lot of cinnamon buns! I can't imagine doing a whole recipe. They are more bread like than pastry like. I kind of like them that way better.

      Awsome and easy recipe!!! I used the dough cycle on my bread machine and the dough turned out great. Next time though I need to cut the recipe in half. DH, DD and DS dogged 'em down. Very quick, easy and tasty!!!

      WOW!!! These were better than any store bought! Loved them! We had these with chili one night and they were perfect! I made them and ended up letting them rise for about 4 hrs and they still turned out great. I plan on freezing a bunch so I can have them anytime I want. I did ice them to finish them off (melted butter, powder sugar, and milk). They were great even re-heated the next day! This is a keeper!
