"I have been making cinnamon rolls and dinner rolls with this recipe since I was about 13. This recipe came from the Betty Crocker Picture Cookbook in the 60's."

Servings Per Recipe: 40
"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 recipe #260046 and for the frosting I used 1/2 a batch of Recipe #36557. Thanks for posting!!"
"Yes, this dough can be made in the bread machine. I made 1/2 a recipe in order to make recipe #260046. 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."
"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."
"Excellent. This dough really is easy to work with. I put everything in my bread machine which made it so easy. Turned out great. Made your recipe #260046 with excellent results. Made for PRMR"
"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."
"WOW!!!! This is the best dough to work with! I have made it at least 6 times in the last month. I even forgot to put the eggs in and still used the dough for Foccia bread. I mostly use it for Cinnammon rolls. Thanks for a KEEPER!"
"I love this dough. It was easy to work with. I made it in my bread machine. I did half the recipe and used 3 3/4 cup flour. I used only half sugar cause I didn't want it too sweet. Perfect like that. I did a few rolls and the rest was recipe#260046. Both were great. Thanks LavenderLynn :) Made for Gimme 5 tag game"
"The perfect multi purpose dough! I used half to make dinner rolls and half to make cinnamon rolls and both turned out great. I did need to add more flour than stated in the recipe, but I don't know if I have made a bread recipe that didn't need a little more or less flour :) I baked the dinner rolls for about 20 minutes on 350 F."
"This is a great dough recipe. I halved it for a pan of cinnamon rolls. I made a mistake and halved all of the ingredients except the egg, and it still turned out great even with the extra egg."
"This is really good!!! You may need more flour that stated though, just knead till the dough is not too sticky! Check out my blog for pictures! http://claireofalltrades.blogspot.com"
