MAKE THIS ONE!!! Oh my gosh. I have tried a LOT of recipes ... I'm a food blogger and a stay-at-home mom with just 1 kid so far. And after our first bites, my husband and I both declared that it might be THE best recipe I have EVER made. I mean I this will definitely be THE Christmas morning recipe for my family, and I think I may even refuse to make it any month other than December just to keep a special Christmastime feeling in the taste. It is PERFECTION!
I followed the directions exactly other than using 4 cups of bread flour and 2-3 cups of regular flour. Bread flour actually makes for a tougher, heartier dough and I like a little of the softer, stretchier aspects of regular flour in breakfast pastries. Yes, it took me about 6+ cups of flour, not 5. I added maybe another cup in the mixer and probably another cup kneading. I only kneaded 7 minutes because I kept having to add more flour. I was worried they'd be too dry... but they were perfect!
I was also worried because the dough didn't taste amazing on its own, but it's ALL about the filling and frosting. The filling ends up caramelized at the bottom of the pan... SO GOOD. I also followed another reviewer who used one 9x12 glass baking/casserole pan and another smaller square one, greased bottom and sides, saving the smaller pan for another day.
Basically these rolls are soft, moist, stretchy, sweet-but-citrusy perfection with a hint of savory (salt) in the cream cheese. You CANNOT go wrong.
