Cinnamon Rolls II

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2011
I haven't eaten them yet so there's a possibility the rating could go up, but it's a slim possibility. Followed the recipe exactly (although "very warm" is a bit ambiguous), used the dough cycle on my bread machine and found I had a gooey mess in the bread machine pan when the cycle was done. I had to add at least 3/4 cup of flour just to be able to keep it off my hands enough to roll out. I didn't want to work the dough too much since that will make them hard and dry. I stopped adding flour too soon since rolling them was nearly impossible. After mushing them into a roll (they wouldn't come off the counter) I cut them and dropped in a pan. They immediately squashed back down into mush. I'm curious to see if they even try to double in size and am preparing to make pancakes while I wait. I didn't need to make pancakes!! They did rise, and they're certainly edible. Not the best I've made but I'll try it again with some alterations. They're a bit dry and the icing has little to no flavor. DH says they're OK and he's always generous. I'm tough on everything I cook and I'm not happy with these. Objectively, a pain to get in as much flour as needed but the end result is middle of the road.
