"These are easy and very good! They can be made and then cooked in the morning and make great hot rolls for special mornings (like Christmas or Easter). I have had a lot of compliments on these. Everyone will think that you got up very early to make these rolls because they are hot in the morning! I use my bread machine for the dough part, makes it very easy!" — ERIBERRY

I used to make this recipe for every special occasion and somehow lost it. Was I ecstatic to see it posted in "allrecipes"! These rolls are the best.
When slicing the logs into individual rolls, use dental floss instead of a knife. The rolls don't get squashed and the cut is cleaner and easier. Use about 18". Put the floss under the roll. Holding each end of the floss, bring them up criss-cross over the log and pull in opposite directions. Kinda like a tonsillectomy, I'm told! Hope others find this way helpful.
These were ok. I followed the recipe exactly. I baked the rolls about 25 minutes and that was too long. They were overcooked and dry, so that is the first thing to watch for. I also didn't think there was enough caramel topping and that it wasn't thick enough. If I make these again, I'd probably double the topping and make it thicker with more brown sugar/butter ratio.
This recipe is fabulous! I must admit, I usually take the lazy route, and use frozen bread dough. I use this recipe only for the caramel. I've used many other caramel recipes, and ended up with really sticky/chewy caramel. This recipe produces perfect caramel. Make certain you do not boil the caramel, or else the caramel mixture will harden! Do as the recipe says, and stir in the corn syrup after the mixture has been taken off the heat source.
I was really surprised at how easy this recipe was to make. I read the reviews and noticed a couple said it needed less butter, so I skipped putting the butter on the rolled out dough. Next time I'll make it exactly as directed. Also, I made my rolls in 3 round pans, and did only one with pecan halves because so many in our family say they don't like nuts, next time I'm going to make them all with the nuts, everyone grabbed for those first and it seemed to protect the rolls from browning too much. I also used parchment paper in the bottem of my pans because someone suggested it was hard to clean, but I think if you just pop the pans right into water for a few minutes after removing the rolls, you won't have any problems with cleanup. Great recipe, thanks Andrea.
This is the best dough recipe for a cinnamon roll that I've tried. I used my bread machine and the dough turned out perfect. The topping was very good but I added a cream cheese frosting that really made the roll. The "Easiness Rating" really drops the overall rating. Rolled baked goods are never easy, and this one is no exception. It is just good messy fun.
I grew up with a recipe that is similar to this one, except it had Rhodes Rolls and butterscotch pudding for the topping. BUT, I wanted to go from scratch and when I saw this I knew that it just might work! Here is how I changed it to be like the one I grew up with...
I made the dough as specified but instead of rolling it out I stopped. I lightly greased two bundt pans, put finely chopped pecans and a handful of coconut in the bottom. Then I made the caramel sauce and put that on top of that. Then I took the dough and divided it as specified and made little balls and put that on top of the sauce. Then I followed the directions after that... covering, putting in fridge and baking in the morning, instantly flipping it out to let the sauce cover that rolls.
It is beautiful and tasty!
I tried these months ago...changed a few things, instead of the carmel glaze I spread it on the rolled dough, add cinnamon - roll in log & cut.
It made my pans impossible to clean almost before.
HOLIDAYS???? I make AT LEAST 2 double batches a week!!!!!
Our small school teachers buy them to start out their Mondays, they are a great "Welcome New Neighbor" suprise, and as my revolving door with my 2 teenagers & friends....
Well, there is not one in there for ME today w/ coffee!
I do a powdered sugar glaze / milk / maple flavoring - just drizzle across....
No one has ever turned one down - or left crumbs!!!
OH. MY. GOD! These just came out of the oven and we are all going CRAZY for them!!! I halved the amount of dough, but kept the full amount of filling and bottom stuff. I also added 1/2 a cup of toasted chopped pecans into the filling. I learned a great technique to make a warm area for the dough to rise: I put the dough and a coffee mug of freshly boiled water into the microwave (don't turn it on). The hot water makes the inside of the microwave the perfect tempertature and humidity for the dough to rise perfectly! I didn't wait overnight, I just let them rise a second time for 30 minutes in the micro again and then baked right away. Mine only took 25 minutes in the oven. EXCELLENT!!!
