    These are the BEST Cinnamon Rolls! I flattened the dough into a 24x32" rectangle and used cream cheese & butter icing. Thank you from me and my family! ♥

    these are not done cooking yet but my house smells wonderful. Here's why I choose this recipe.... I have a son who is on a low iodine diet( thyroid cancer) because of needing radiation in 2 weeks. He can not have dairy, eggs, soy or iodized salt. This recipe fit the bill and he was craving cinnamon rolls. They cooked up beautifully and I think I may just add a confection sugar glaze to keep them moist. But they look as beautiful as the picture I'm so excited to bring them to him :)

    For those who may be culinarily challenged, you have to make the cinnamon roll dough before you make this, which is just the recipe for the filling. My family likes pecans, so I added chopped pecans to the filling.

    The recipe for the dough is not included with the recipe...can you please add it? I made these a couple of years ago and would like to make them again!
