Recipe by MC1
A great dough that can be made into cinnamon rolls or bread..The recipe can be 'customized" to your taste by adding cinnamon, nuts or even fruit filling to the roll.

This was good and I used it to just create cinnamon twists. Once the bread had risen a couple of times, I rolled it out, sliced into strips, brushed with melted butter and covered with sugar/cinnamon mixture (add nuts too if you like). Turned out actually not tasting that sweet which was a surprise but we still enjoyed it especially as a late morning snack with a hot beverage. They kept very well in a container and warmed up easily in the microwave.
