i have never made cinnamon rolls before. i'm not good at all at making dough either, so when i got my breadmaker a couple of months ago, this is a recipe i had to try. i started this afternoon with the dough, in the breadmachine, started having probs with rising, or so i thought, turned out okay, but lots of worrying and posting to AR for help, and i got excellent help by the way. okay, rolled them out, doubled the recipe for the filling, rolled them up, cut them, (i ended up with 16 pieces), left four out to rise, and froze the rest. well the four didn't really rise, as the recipe called for. the recipe said "until they double in size. they may have quartered in size, so i was quite worried about this as well. i also didn't pack them in tight in the pan. my pan was an 8x8 with the four rolls packed in the middle, so when i took them out of the oven, the outsides were a dark brown (not burned). i spread some of the icing on top right away as some reviewer suggested to make them softer. and a few min. later put the rest on. OMG. they were AWESOME. i suprised myself! my son even loves me again (he's typical moody 17 yr old) he ate two. the dough in the middle is sooooo soft and tender, just like the real deals. these are easy, after all the trouble i thought they were. i worried for nothing it seems. however, i do wonder how to get the filling a little more gooeyer/syrupy like. as it tends to get hard once they're cooled and this is soooo not a complaint! cuz it's soooo yummy,
