I made these cinnamon rolls and the dough is the best that I have had. The dough was light and easy to make. I made a couple of minor changes. Instead of using all purpose flour I used bread flour and I put butter, cinnamon, sugar and pecans in the bottom of the pan because my family does not care for glaze on their cinnamon rolls. Excellent recipe I can't wait to make these to take to my women's bible study group.

Very moist and great flavor! I was a little confused when you said to roll the dough jelly-roll style, but then you didn't cut them before letting them rise again. I let them rise not cut and it was a hassle to cut them afterward, even with dental floss. Next time I will cut them first. I do love this recipe though! I've been looking for a good one! I used a thick butter cream frosting for mine and my family loved them! I like how fast they rise and how easy the dough is to handle and work with! Thanks so much!

Raised nicely and looked beautiful. My only complaint was that the filling settled to the bottom of the pan too much. I usually use a dry mixture of brown sugar and cinnamon--adding the cream liquifies the sugar too much.

The dough is tender and yet, I felt the rolls were a little bland. Probably a little cream cheese to the icing might make up for it. Dough is easy with which to work, but it still needs some extra cinnamon. I used 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, but would use a little more next time. All-in-all a very good recipe, but still not the awesome one for which I am looking.

Great! I make a lot of cinnamon rolls and this dough was very easy to work with and gave a great result. Used the bread maker to preare the dough, then formed the rolls, let rise partially, then covered and refrigerated overnight for Christmas morning. When I got up, let rise and baked. This made two full 13x9 pans, 24 rolls, which I baked at 350 less than 20 minutes. Used 3 cups of Cinnamon Bun Icing, which was perfect for both pans. Did add a full teaspoon of cinnamon in the filling, even so the cinnamon was not overly strong. The filling worked quite well, in fact it was one of the easiest I've made, and held inside the rolls quite nicely at forming, rising, and baking. Will make these again. Thanks for sharing!

I have not made this recipe, but wanted to give a helpful tip. To keep the filling inside, add 4 tablespoons of flour to the filling. This will act as the "glue" to keep the filling inside of the rolls when you bake it. I'll be trying this recipe out when I have some hot mashed potatoes. Thanks!

Excellent! This is the first time I have ever had cinnamon rolls turn out without the bread dry! It was soft and tender. delicious! I used 3 tsp. of cinnamon, that was a bit too much, 2 should be great. I used 1/2 whole wheat flour and frosted them with creamcheese frosting.

These are outstanding! The dough bakes up fluffy and light and with awesome flavor. I added more cinnamon (1 tsp) in the filling and thought it could use even more. I used the cream and didn't have any problems with the filling falling to the bottom. It was a rather thick paste that I spread on the dough and it worked beautifully. Thanks, we'll make these again!
