Recipe by Lainey39

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.
