Personal Notes:
This recipe comes from Michael's family and Michael is the roll and cinnamon roll maker in our house. The Cinnamon Rolls are always a treat for special occasions and the rolls are made for Thanksgiving, Christmas and any other special occasion. Mixing the dough with a mixer that has a dough hook makes it much easier to blend once all the ingredients have been added.
