These are probably the best cinnamon rolls I have ever had! First time I followed the directions and they were great. Made three more batches this week with the following changes. I used 1 cup of milk, added 1 tsp vanilla to the milk, 2T soft butter and 1 egg to my bread maker, then 3c of all purpose flour, 1/4 c white sugar, 3/4 tsp salt. and 2 1/2 tsp of instant yeast. Then followed directions for sweet dough cycle of bread machine. When it was done, I turned onto floured board and rolled into a rectangle. For the "swirl" I used 1/2 c of brown sugar, 1 tsp. cinnamon and 3 T. melted butter, I added 1 cup of raisins that I put in a bowl of hot water and microwaved for about 30 seconds to plump them. I brushed the dough with melted butter and sprinkled with the cin/sug. Rolled tightly and with super sharp knife I cut in half and then into 12 rolls. Placed 6 each in greased round cake pans, covered one with plastic and put in fridge, the second into the freezer. The first pan did an overnite rise, and in the morning I took it out and while oven was preheating I let it rise a bit more. These are melt in your mouth good. Please note, with the original recipe these are still the best I have ever had, so the changes aren't necessary for superb rolls. It's just fun to tweak this a bit to make it mine, just as many of you will tweak it to make it yours. Either way, you have got to make these!
