Oooey gooey SINFULLY good Cinnamon Rolls! I get asked to make these and asked for the recipe ALL the time!!! They are fabulous! I hope you enjoy! I usually bake with butter in most dessert recipes but this recipe margarine makes all the difference. Cooking times includes time for rising.

Fabulous! I used butter as I don't buy margarine, but oh my, these are good! Compliments ranged from fantastic, awesome, absolutely incredible, to die for, well, you get the point. I have NEVER been able to make a decent icing for cinnamon buns, but after using your recipe? Let's just say you made me look SO good, lol. Thank you! Edited 4/3/10 I've made these more times than I can count now, and I agree, they ARE better with margarine. The texture of the bread is so much softer. Thanks again for posting!
