"These are moist, delicious rolls. They can be made gooey by making a caramel sauce. They also freeze well." — MARYLYN PISSERI

excellent! I don't own a bread machine, so I made the dough in my trusty kitchen-aid mixer.
It didn't take as long to rise as the recipe called for. I did a normal 1-hour first rising, punched it down and let it rise for another half hour, then shaped it and let it rise in the pan for only about 1/2 hour.
Will make this one again.
I am actually writing this review hoping to get some tips from others. This recipe had a great dough texture (I like my sticky buns to be realy yeasty and soft not like bread) and the flavor was very good, but I ran into the problem I always do when I make cinnamon pecan sticky bun type stuff. Too Dry! not enough of the sticky stuff. So should I just triple the sauce recipe or something to make it more gooey?
Other than that nice recipe, easy but time consuming.
Update Dec. 5 2006:
This is a great dough recipe but I use the caramel recipe on "Cinnamon Rolls I" posted on this site. I double the caramel recipe and use pecans rather than walnuts. Great!
My rolls turned out very dry and heavy instead of gooey and light. I took the advice from below and used the caramel sauce (doubled) from Cinnamon Rolls I and it was good. I also used the cream cheese frosting from Cinnamon Rolls II and it was awesome! Double the cinnamon and brown sugar that goes between the rolls too because there wasn't enough. I'll make these again to try to get them softer but was disappointed.
I made 3 Different recipes on here that had 5 stars and this was far better. my roomates and i loved these
Super rolls! The rolls were soft, with a nice texture to compliment the gooey, sweet, cinnamony filling. The only changes I made were substituting white sugar + molasses for brown sugar which isn't available and almost doubling it. I also added more walnuts (especially in the mixture which is added to the baking pan). Highly recommend this recipe and it will very quickly become a standard in my house!
Best cinnamon roll recipe I have ever tried.To speed things up I bought frozen bread dough.So good!!
My first try at sticky buns....thank you for the recipe! I made the dough in my Kitchen Aid. Hubby and son loved them! They looked like something from a bakery. I do not like cinnamon, but Hubby took them to work and everyone wanted more.
Very easy to make, and delicious! Just like my grandmothers!
