I tried about five cinnamon roll recipes before landing on this one, which is PERFECTION. I've tried Pioneer Woman's recipe, Alton Brown's overnight recipe, a recipe I got from Sunset magazine, and a few others. Finally I went in search of the perfect recipe. Pioneer Woman's recipe took too long, Alton Brown's recipe was too eggy, and the Sunset recipe had no eggs and I thought the cinnamon rolls didn't have enough flavor. These are perfect, but I think they're even better if you make them the night before and stick them in the fridge. Some of the sugar crystallizes and it's delicious. You just need to pull them out about 30 minutes before baking them. Also, adding a cream cheese glaze/frosting is a must. I use 2.5 oz cream cheese, 3 TBS milk, and 1.5 cups of powdered sugar. Mix it up with a mixer (I use my hand mixer), pour on top of the cinnamon rolls when you pull 'em out of the oven, and don't expect to have any cinnamon rolls left, even if you're all by yourself.
