I have only made cinnamon rolls a couple of times in the last 40 years or so. I stopped trying because the dough was never soft enough and they never turned out well at all even though I followed the recipes to the letter.
This may have been the problem.
After refusing to pay what Cinnabon charges for a sweet roll I decided to try one more time while changing up the basic recipe. I was very pleasantly surprised to finally have made a batch of cinnamon rolls that were tender and delicious, an unexpected delight!
I hope you enjoy them as much as I did. Please do not over bake them or they will be on the dry side. That is what happened with my next batch even though they still were tasty.

My mom used to make these every Holy Thursday – I can still remember how our kitchen smelled after all these years!
