I makes dozens of these a week and my customers love that they are not overly sweet or gooey.



In an extra large metal bowl add the water, eggs, oil, and sugar. Whisk until lightly frothy. Then add the yeast and the 2 cups of flour; whisk until smooth. Add the 6 cups of flour and gently fold together. Dough should still be a little sticky and feel kinda soft to the touch. Fold into a balled up shape and put covered pan in an oven with it's light on.

Wait for 15 minutes, then remove pan from oven and place dough onto a lightly floured surface. Sprinkle a small amount of flour on to the dough then knead the dough until it is one smooth ball. Replace into bowl, cover with towel, and back into oven for 15 minutes. Clean area on counter and lightly re-flour surface area.


After 15 minutes remove dough from oven and place the onto lightly floured surface. Knead dough until you hear the squeak of air pockets. After dough has been kneaded replace in pan, cover, and place back in oven for 30 minutes.

Clean area and remove all flour bits. Lightly spread the margarine onto the cleaned surface. Lightly sprinkle cinnamon onto greased surface. After the 30 minutes are done, take out the pan and cut then dough in half (while still in pan) with a long sharp bread knife. Remove one half of the dough and place onto greased surface. Then use your rolling pin, lightly greased, and roll out the dough until it is a long (2 1/2 foot) and wide (1 foot) strip of dough. Set aside roller, then use 1/2 a square of the softened margarine and spread it all over surface of dough. Make sure the edges are greased well. Sprinkle 1 1/2 cups of brown sugar and 1 heaping Tbsp. of cinnamon onto dough. Spread cinnamon and sugar until all of dough is well covered.


Now you roll up the dough. Gently pull the dough toward you when roll it. (it will tear easily so be careful). When you have rolled it completely, Cut it into 2 inch thick slices. Place in to greased 9x13 pans, cover and put into lit oven. Repeat the process with the remaining dough. Place pans in oven for 30 minutes. This gives you a chance to clean the surface area. You can use a plastic spatula or I use a small plastic disk to scrape up the leftover margarine and sugar from the surface. Discard any unused margarine and sugar from counter top.

Place wax paper under cooling racks to catch drips from cinnamon buns. After 30 minutes pull out the pans and turn oven on to 325 degrees F and when oven has heated place pans in the long way, side by side. Bake in oven until tops are a nice golden brown. Remove from oven and turn pans upside down onto racks. Quickly take the pans away. You will see the sauce ooze down through the buns. Let them sit for 5-10 minutes before serving.


They freeze well if packaged in groups of four or six, Enjoy.

Cut each biscuit in long strips. Starting at the edge of biscuit and cutting in a circle. Melt butter in cake pan in oven, leave about 2 tablespoons in the bottom of pan and put remaining butter in a separate bowl.

I was hungry for cinnamon rolls the other morning and I had a can of Grands Biscuits in the refrigerator. I took each biscuit and rolled it into a circle, spread it with butter, topped it with cinnamon and brown sugar and raisins.


I cut them in half and put them in a greased muffin tin. Baked at 350 degrees F for about 15 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. For cinnamon rolls, unroll crescent dough into 1 large rectangle; press perforations together with fingers to seal. Spread butter evenly over dough.

When making cinnamon rolls, instead of cutting the roll into segments with a knife, which tends to squish them, just cut a length of dental floss or heavy thread about 10 or 12 inches long.

The frozen bread dough that comes in the 2 or 3 packs, makes great rolls. I think there are even directions on the package. Can also make cinnamon pull apart, defrost and let rise, melt butter and make a bowl of cinnamon sugar. Coat pan with butter and take walnut size pieces of dough, dip in butter, roll in cinn/sugar, pile in pan. Bake and yummy! It's messy, good for the kids to get to do, because you'll get messy one way or another. Can also sprinkle raisins or any other chopped dried fruit in with the layers of dough as you stack. Hope that helps some.

(Yield: 15 Servings)

2 cups "JIFFY" Baking Mix
2/3 cup milk
1/4 cup soft margarine or butter
3 Tbsp. sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon


Preheat oven to 425°.
Grease 11"x7" pan or muffin pans.

Blend Baking Mix and milk. Turn onto surface dusted with Baking Mix and knead about 20 times. Pat or roll dough 1/4" thick rectangle 8"x15". Spread with soft margarine and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. Roll as for a jellyroll. Cut into 1" pieces. Place in prepared pan. Bake 15 minutes. Serve warm.

If desired, while warm, frost with "JIFFY" White Frosting.

I used this recipe and made these cinnamon rolls, but had to add more jiffy mix wasnt enough to knead it. I made my own icing with milk, powdered sugar and vanilla.

I am making cinnamon rolls made from frozen bread dough. Does anyone have any suggestions for special flavors they use in theirs? Thanks.

Sprinkle some butterscotch pudding mix (not instant) in with the cinnamon sugar mix - about 2 cinnamon/sugar mix to 1 pudding. M-m-m-m! I adapted this idea from a recipe off the Rhodes bread dough website.

I'm asking for your help on helping a friend find a recipe that her Mom used to make. (Her Mom is in a nursing home and doesn't know or remember much any longer, sorry to say.) My friend says it's along the way you make cinnamon rolls, but you use cottage cheese as a filling, along with cinnamon and chopped nuts. Thanks for any help!

At Wal Mart I found a CD titled 'One Million Recipies' I am not certain that there are actually a million on there, but there are a lot. Everything from kid-friendly recipies, diabetic, crock maybe that will help. It cost $9.99 so, much cheaper than most cookbook with a lot fewer entries. Also, maybe looking at online sites for cooking. If you are interested in 'secret recipies' from your favourite restaurants, go to and there are a lot of good recipies there.

  • 2 (.25 oz.) packages active dry yeast
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 2 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
  • 1 Tbsp. salt
  • 6 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon


In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast and 1/3 cup sugar in warm water. Stir in salt and 2 cups flour. Beat mixture for 2 minutes. Beat in eggs and oil. Stir in the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, beating well after each addition.

When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 40 minutes. In a small bowl, stir together 1/2 cup sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon; set aside.

Divide the dough into twelve equal pieces. Take each piece of dough, roll into a log and roll in cinnamon sugar mixture. Place the knots in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking pan. Cover the rolls with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled in volume, about 40 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes, until golden.

Yield: 12 servings
