Thread Starter 

I found this recipe in a 1974 issue of Family Circle,This book has some awesome recipes!

I'll post more when i try them.

These were great,I can give complete recipe for anyone that's interested.

But this is a quick rundown of the method used.



Make a sweet yeast dough



Knead dough for 5 mins



Place in greased bowl and let rise



After the dough rises punch down nead a few times and let rest



Then roll out and cover with softened butter,brown sugar,and cinnamon.I added just a few chopped pecans.



Roll into a log and slice



Place in pan and let rise



After they have risen Bake @ 375º for 25 mins



Fresh out of the oven



Then drizzle with icing



Very moist and flakey



Next time i'll tweak the recipe a little, But these are some Awesome rolls.

Thanks for checkin'em out.
