Jumbo Cinnamon Rolls

"I especially like recipes that make just enough for the two of us, and these yummy sweet rolls fit the bill," writes Edna Hoffman of Hebron, Indiana. "Because these treats begin with a ready-made dough, they couldn't be easier or more convenient to whip up."

    I prepared these delicious rolls today. I did have problems with the dough rising but persevered and in the end they turned out beautifully. I took 4 rolls and put in the fridge last night to thaw. I had to use the oven on very low to get them to rise. Even though I could not roll into a 12-inch strip but a little shorter, I still followed the recipe. Be sure to coat both sides with butter and roll in cinnamon mixture. When I baked them, they rose and were beautiful as well as delicious. I used Rhodes Texas size rolls which were the only ones I could find. Volunteer Field Editor
