Wow - thank you so much for posting this recipe. It is absolutely fantastic and SO EASY! I've made both dinner and cinnamon rolls with the dough and the entire family has gobbled them up. Because I only baked 1/4 of the recipe at a time (and my oven always seems to cook faster than expected), I set the temp at 350 and shortened the time to 20 minutes - they came out golden, soft, sweet, and delicious. This is definitely going into our regular rotation - thanks again!
