Tee's Cinnamon Roll

This recipe for me is special because I learned how to make it when I was in High school Home Economics class in 1969. Those were the days. We would make them and treat the teachers and friends with our treats. I Was always the one making and kneading the dough, such fun. After marriage and three daughters I continued the roll making for my family and friends. I made these for my daughters 12th wedding anniversary they love my cinnamon rolls
