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*

Thanks for posting. My family always used this recipe for holiday rolls. Went to find it in the current B.C. cookbook and was disappointed that it wasn't there. Glad to find it again.

Finally, cinnamon roll success, using this dough recipe and your recipe for the filling which was perfect as well. I used half the dough for dinner rolls that were delicious. Thanks for posting the keeper!

Thanks for posting this recipe! I have been making this dough from my 1957 Betty Crocker picture cook book, but lost the original page. I improvised and was making it from memory. Should not have doubted myself as everybody loved the various breads from this dough. It is an excellent dough! Just glad to know, if you use a recipe alot it does get put into our brains! Now I don't have to keep looking for the original recipe! Thanks again!

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.

What a great sweet dough Lynn. I never make bread, but this recipe, was so easy to follow that I am glad I did. The dough rose beautifully and tasted even better. I made half the recipe, it made 13 beautiful cinnamon rolls. Thanks so much for sharing this winner that i will be making again.

I have been using this recipe since I was 13 years old when I received a Betty Crocker cookbook for my birthday in 1966. I use it for peach sunburst rolls, crescents, pull-a-parts and various rolls. At family gatherings, I am always asked to make the dinner rolls.
