Sharee's notes for this recipe:
This is a dinner roll recipe but can be made into a wonderful, perfect cinnamon roll. Had these for Christmas and I couldn't get enough!
Make it Your Way...

Personalize This


Add flour first and bury your yeast in the flour. Then add sugar and salt. Don't mix together!
Add oil and lastly add the hot water. Mix together. Dough will be sticky so use oil to work through your hands better. Do NOT add extra flour.
Cover with towel and allow to rise until doubled in size. Punch it down and allow to rise a second time until doubled in size.
IF YOU ARE MAKING DINNER ROLLS, break off into balls and place in a well greased pan and bake @400 for 20 minutes.
IF YOU ARE MAKING CINNAMON ROLLS, roll out on flour surface. Mix together cinnamon and brown sugar in a bowl. Spread butter over dough, then sprinkle with cinnamon/brown sugar mix.
Roll and cut into buns and bake on well greased sheet @350 for about a half an hour.
