Really nice texture!! The first time I made these, I did them in the stand mixer and added all the flour at once (because I forgot to only add part and it was too late to take it out). I also used almost 2 packages of pre-cooked bacon in there before I rolled them and used a maple flavored cream cheese frosting at the end. Those were excellent. Bacon, brown sugar, raisins and maple are fantastic together! Salty and sweet! YUM! But this time, I followed the directions, adding only part of the flour at the beginning and let the gluten develop as the mixer did its job. I added some freshly grated nutmeg and substituted orange juice for the water. The dough itself came out nice and soft and very resilient. I soaked the raisins in some hot orange juice while the dough mixed and rested. Mixing the brown sugar and cinnamon with the soft butter then spreading the mixture is a big help and keeps the filling inside the rolls better. I also added a little nutmeg to the filling. Frosted with cream cheese frosting with orange juice and orange extract to compliment it. The texture of this dough is fantastic. It has that soft and slightly "stringy" texture that is so tender but still holds together nicely. Give these a few minutes out of the oven to rest and soak the gooey filling back up, then flip them upside down on a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper so the rest of the filling goes back in and also glazes them. Excellent Recipe! Thank you!
