These are some mighty tasty cinnamon rolls! They were easy to make, followed the directions exactly and they came out perfectly. I wonder how big your cinnamon rolls normally are though, Meanie, since I got 18 good sized rolls (cutting the dough just over 1 inch thick) out of this batch. Thanks for a keeper! These would be heavenly to pull out of the oven when you have guests over or for a special treat like Christmas.

Oh My God!!! Lovely, Lovely little wonders. Made them by hand and enjoyed the making as well as the serving and the eating. Used walnuts and they were yummy to the extreme. I was reminded all over again why baking is so special to me. :) Fay

These rolls were really great! I made them at Christmas time to give to my neighbours who are always helpful and also enjoy home baking. I brought them to their house while they were still hot out of the oven. They finished them off that evening. I had to have some for myself so I made another batch for myself. Oh, so good.
