      I halved this recipe to make a batch cinnamon rolls. I used butter instead of shortening because my shortening had expired. I pulled off a small amount of dough to make 6 dinner rolls and used the rest to make 12 cinnamon rolls. They came out excellent. My husband said they were the best he ever had homemade or store-bought. I used your filling from Cinnamon Rolls and for the frosting I used 1/2 a batch of Cream Cheese Frosting. Thanks for posting!!

      Yes, this dough can be made in the bread machine. I made 1/2 a recipe in order to make Cinnamon Rolls. Doing it in the bread machine on the dough cycle is a real time saver. The water, milk, sugar, salt and beaten egg were added first. The shortening was cut into small cubes and added, then 3 1/2 cups flour and finally the yeast. Made for *ZWT6*

      I have been using this recipe from the Betty Crocker cook book since 1968. Family loves it. Make pecan sticky rolls, and dinner rolls of all shapes. The cookbook has a recipe for richer dough in addition to this and it makes great coffeecake and even dinner rolls. I use it for every holiday meal. Have tried other yeast doughs but always come back to this.
