These are super easy and very delicious. My daughter and I made them. We had a great time and everyone really liked them. The bread raises beautifully. They had a crisp crust on the outside and soft, melt-int-your mouth inside.
Instead of using raisins, next time I will use
dried cranberrys and dried cherries. My rolls really rose up high! Great!
These were tasty! I cut up dried cherries and added them with the raisens. Great!
I am sorry to report that this recipe was a flop for me! I thought they looked so yummy and all the reviews were so positive. I halved the recipe and they did not rise well at all and they are hard - not soft & gooey like cr should be. We ate 3-4 and threw the rest out :(. It's an easy recipe to follow but I won't try it again.
These Cinnamon Rolls are really great!!! I did substitute applesauce for the oil and used Splenda for 1/2 of the sugar called for in the dough and in the filling. One question, why are you "not" to knead the dough? I've been baking for 46 years and the cinnamon roll recipes, always have you knead the dough. Does someone know the answer.
Anyway, these are great and I will make them again, this weekend, I hope.
