These are the cinnamon rolls my elementary school served every Friday with bean chowder for lunch. I added to the name because they do bring back such sweet memories! *note* I'm not sure if the sizes on the yeast and powdered sugar are exactly right, zaar would not let me put them as just package or box.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dissolve yeast and sugar in lukewarm water. Add melted shortening and beaten egg. Add flour, powdered milk and salt; mix thoroughly. Cover and let rise until double in a warm place. Work down and roll to 11/4-inch thickness. Brush with butter.

  5. --------Glaze-------.
  6. Brush hot cinnamon rolls with powdered sugar glaze.

I made these twice. The first ones were good but the size of a cake saucer almost and had too much filling to suit my taste. I indeed got 12 rolls and hubby ate them up. The second time I rolled them lots thinner. Divided my dough and used much less filling. I get 39 small rolls (app. 3 inches, 1/2 inch tall. Doubled the icing on this one. And loved them. So I guess it depends on the size you like. I like the smaller and next time will freeze them in individual servings for breakfast, and add icing as needed. Don't know how the freezing will work. But will post when I find out. Thanks Okie!
