Grandma's Best Cinnamon Rolls

Total Time

This is from a clipping from a magazine dated 1997 I mix the dough in the bread machine on the dough cycle. And then shape, rise and bake in the oven. The rolls are tender and I like the oatmeal. I finished them off with some icing I had left over from a spanich bar cake that I made a few days before. This is a good recipe if you are home getting ready for overnight guests, the bread machine does a lot of the work, and your guests think you spent hours making these. (the prep time doesn't include the time in the bread machine)

These are the best cinnamon rolls I've ever made. They were light and tender. I'll be making them often.

Very good! These were very tasty and my family was sneaking them as they cooled, before I had a chance to ice them. The honey in the icing is a nice flavor change. I liked the ease of using the bread machine too. While they tasted very good,and I would certainly make these again, I found them to be a bit less light & tender than I expected. I also would reduce the amount of honey just a bit, and increase the cinnamon next time for our preferences, although they taste very good as they are.
