Kathie's notes for this recipe:
These rolls are from a Fleischmann's Yeast brochure printed in the 1960's. I used this recipe when I was a kid in 4-H and, after trying dozens of other recipes over the years, these have remained my all time favorite cinnamon rolls.

Recipe is from scratch and takes a long time to make, but I think they are worth the effort.

Cinnamon rolls came out great! I used the best sweet yeast roll recipe to start. I made one small adjustment to that recipe. I took almost a tablespoon of sugar from the amount going into the scalded milk and instead dissolved it in the warm water and then added the yeast and covered it. The sugar really activates the yeast so it's bubbly and foamy and smells wonderful. This recipe is a keeper!! Thank you!
