  1. This dough baked up with a great texture and delicious flavor. It was also very easy to work with. (I used my bread machine for the kneading!) The dough is 5 stars. However, there really isn't enough filling in these to make them "sticky" or even compare to a regular cinnamon roll or bun...they're almost like eating cinnamon raisin bread. Not that that's a bad thing, just not what I expected because of the name of this recipe. I baked these in 13 x 9 pyrex pans (3x5 rows, 15 in each pan), so I decreased the temp to 350 degrees. I will definitely make these again, but I would at least double the filling and possibly use some type of glaze on top. Thanks for posting!
