These were THE MOST awesome cinnamon rolls I have ever made in my life! The dough was very easy to work with.... they raised beautifully.. and best of all, they taste JUST LIKE Cinnabon cinnamon rolls!!! I made 2 batches in 2 days~ (giving most away... LOL ...too tempting to have in the house) Definitely a MUST try!!!
Absolutely AWESOME! I've never made cinnamon rolls before, And these turned out incredible. Just like at the mall.
Fantastic! A couple of things to note: the BROWN SUGAR & CINNAMON was noted in the ingredients section (although somewhat obvious as needed), I may have totally forgotten about the Brown Sugar if I used the items listed from the shopping list. The prep time was a little deceiving as it took me about 3 1/2 hours from start to finish to get it all done. The nice thing was that I was able to focus on the clean up and prep of other items while waiting for the dough to rise. Definitely make sure that you have at least a gallon of milk to have ready for you and others to wash down this wonderful item. Would recommend cutting the dough into 4 pieces before rolling it out. It should then come out to the 20 rolls and not take up the entire counter to cut. Thanks for sharing this recipe!!! :-)
