    dontfencemein's Note:

    Came across this recipe in one of my Grandmothers old recipe books. It makes one of the softest, yet not sticky doughs I have ever worked with. This is THE ONLY dough I will use for my cinnamon rolls, and fruit rolls.

      This was a lovely dough but as mentioned by some other reviewers, I had to add two more cups of flour. I think that much extra flour calls for the addition of a bit more sugar as well as a bit more salt. I ended up with 21 nice sized rolls and my husband and mother both loved them.

      This is a great recipe! I halved the recipe and still got a dozen large cinnamon rolls. It nearly filled a 9x13 pan. I love that this recipe doesn't require waiting around for long periods of time for dough to double and double again. The hot water trick did the job for me and my rolls were ready in under 2 hours start to finish and ready for breakfast when everyone woke up.
