Knead 10 minutes. The dough should be pulling away from the sides of the bowl or counter but still sticky to touch.

Place in a well greased bowl, turning once to coat the surface of the dough. Cover and let rise in a warm place until double – about an hour.

I forgot to take the picture of the dough after rising. Sorry!

Punch down and divide into 3 loaves and place in greased 9×5 inch loaf pans and allow to rise until dough tops the pans by 1 inch.1st half jan 2013 077

Bake at 350F for 25 to 30 minutes and do not over bake. I don’t bother to brush the tops of the loaves with butter and the crust really doesn’t get hard. Cool completely.

This is slightly sweet. I took this same recipe and divided it in half and made these. It made 2 pans.

Yummy!  🙂  If you’re interested in how I made them let me know. I’ll warn you now they are super sticky sweet and have a ton of calories! But oh so good!

It was very chilly and foggy this morning. Not much above freezing.

Some critters don’t seem to mind. She thought it was a good morning for a bath.

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog today, those cinnamon rolls look delicious but definately not on my New Years diet. Oh well, maybe in a few months I might splurge a little.
