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.
