    CindiJ's Note:

    I came across this recipe in 1990 and make these every Christmas for client gifts. Friends request these for birthday instead of cake! I've adapted this recipe slightly according to tips and suggestions from all that receive these rolls. Please note prep time does NOT include times for dough to rise

      Great Rolls! I made the recipe "as is" and found the directions to be clear and easy. I overbaked mine a bit and will watch them closer next time. I love the plumping of the raisins before had - they stand out nicely in the rolls. I also like the addition of oatmeal to the dough. It's not noticeable in the finished product but makes it seem like a healthy addition. They were enjoyed. Thanks for your advice and help Cindi!
