Wow, were these good! I proofed a package of active dry yeast with 1/4 cup sugar and the milk heated to 110 degrees. Then I added the remainder of the dough ingredients and mixed with the dough hook in my stand mixer. I finished kneading a little bit by hand. Then I put it in a greased glass bowl covered loosely with greased plastic wrap. I put it in the oven that I had preheated to 200 degrees and turned off for 1 hour. I did as another user suggested and mixed the butter with the brown sugar and cinnamon. Then I just spread this on the dough. My husband talked me into cutting them into just 8 rolls. They were huge - just like real Cinnabons. I made them the night before, covered and refridgerated, pulled them right out of the fridge in the morning and popped them in a cold oven that I then set to heat to 350 degreees. In about 25 minutes, they were brown on top. (My oven does cook a little hot.) They were outstanding. My husband thought the dough could have been a little richer to be just like a Cinnabon but the cinnamon filling and icing were right on.
