"My Aunt Joan makes the BEST cinnamon rolls (or are they sticky buns?) and my mom and I got her to give us the recipe. She's been making this recipe since the 1960's. The measurements and directions aren't precise so please be careful. Joan has been making these so long that these are the directions we were given. ;) If you bake moderately frequently, you should be fine! I hope some of you enjoy these as much as we have over the years. UPDATE: Xmas eve 2012 making for first time (big shoes to fill...) spoke with Aunt Joan. This recipe makes (2) 9X12 pans - about 12 rolls each. Topping updated; use half in ea pan. I used 7 C flour - and needed the dough for about 5 minutes. First 6.5 C into the mix in the bowl and the last bit used to dust the countertop while I kneaded the dough. In a hurry (xmas eve!) and so warmed the oven to 150 and then opened the door and put dough in oven - warm environment to double quicker... will update"

"Not really a cinnamon roll, more a sticky bun (like you said in your introduction). This recipe made about 11 large rolls in a 13"x9" pan. I had to cover them for the last 10 minutes of cooking, because they were browning quickly on the top and weren't done in the middle yet. The caramel sauce on top was good, and they made great leftovers. Thanks Gidget265!"
"These rolls were the best I have ever made. Mind yiu it took me over 4 hours from the time I started to the time I finished. Very very good! I will be making these again!"
"I absolutely loved working with this dough. It was so easy to roll, stretch, etc... The topping is tasty. I didn't use nuts, because I didn't have any, but I think these would be great with chopped pecans. I halved the recipe and used about 1/4 C sugar and just shy of 1 T. cinnamon. I think I would up those amounts for next time. There will be a next time. These babies are beautiful! My mom is really going to love them. Thank you for posting your Aunt's recipe. It's a winner! Made for spring 2014 PAC event."
