    Lainey6605's Note:

    I forget where I got this recipe, but they are so good. I often take these to work and my co-workers just love them! I especially like to make them on holiday mornings. They are worth the time it takes to prepare! They never last long anywhere I take them. I suggest this recipe for experienced bakers. Edited 1/4/08 to correct yeast package amounts.

      DH was half way through a roll when he said that the had to be 5 stars. I skipped the glaze as I have no powdered sugar in the house. I think that the dough withs have risen higher but my mixed self destructed after I had just started the beating (I have to get a stand mixer!). I used brown sugar, cinnamon and raisins for the filling as that is what dh likes and I made them for him.

      This is good. The first pan was gone within minutes, and another was guarded carefully until the camera could be ready. I loved the emphasis on beating and kneading -- bakers often neglect this. It's important to note that the first ingredient is two packets of 1/4 oz. each, not two and a quarter ounces of yeast, but most bakers will figure that out. The dough was stiffer than I'm used to and was an effort to knead and roll out, and there's a lot of sugar in there. The end result was nummy, though, coming out of the oven tender and beautiful.
