"Adding oats to the dough makes these sweet rolls a little more hearty. The gooey topping is finger-licking good! --Barbara Simonds, Wellsboro, Pennsylvania"

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine 1-1/2 cups flour, oats, brown sugar, salt and yeast. In a saucepan, heat milk and shortening to 120 degrees F-130 degrees F. Add to the oat mixture; mix well. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Add enough remaining flour to form a stiff dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
  2. Punch dough down. Roll into a 16-in. x 12-in. rectangle. Combine filling ingredients; sprinkle over dough to within 1/2 in. of edges. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side. Cut into 12 slices.
  3. Sprinkle nuts into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking pan. Combine the remaining topping ingredients; pour over nuts. Place rolls over topping. Cover and let rise for 30 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes before inverting rolls onto a wire rack.

I've been making these for a long time. My family requests these often. The oatmeal in the dough seems to keep the cinnamon rolls fresher longer. However, they are so good that they are usually ...

Good taste but the texture was a little hard.

Yumm! Puffed up nice and soft with a wonderful variation of flavor with the orange rind. I substituted 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour and 2 cups bread flour for the 3 1/2 cups all purpose. Also,...

Add the yeast directly to the warm milk/shortening at a temp of 110-115 degrees. Mixing the ingredients together first will potently negatively affect the yeast activation and starting the yeast...

I did not use the icing but the roll recipe is wonderful. My wife does not usually like oats but did not notice them. I liked how the oats made them more filling. I used 2 fewer tablespoons b...
