    Chef on the coast's Note:

    I grew up eating these. My mom is a great cook and most of the time had something tasty going on in the kitchen. DH and kids look forward to the times when I make these. I make them the night before and let them rise in the fridge overnight. The trick is getting up before everyone else to get them in the oven... This recipe can easily be halved. Still use the 1 egg if doing so.

      Wow! These are fantastic. I made them exactly as written and they came out perfectly. I did not have a problem with the filling oozing out, but I kept it an inch inside the edge of the dough so they turned out great. The flavor --- what can I say except they are the BEST cinnamon rolls I've ever had. I didn't refrigerate mine; I just baked them as soon as they were rolled and cut into pieces. We're going to have them again on Christmas morning. Thanks for this wonderful recipe!

      Not a good idea to melt to melt the filling before spreading it on the dough --- it was hard keeping it in! The dough was ok though.

      I made these for a neighbor who wanted something for an afternoon gathering, & since she knew my love for making desserts, well.... They were a hit with her group, & I REALLY LOVED the one I got to taste ~ very reminiscent of those an aunt made when I was a teenager! Definitely something I want to make again!
