Lunch Lady Cinnamon Rolls

Just a warning – this recipe makes a lot! The first time I made it, I really didn’t pay any attention to the amount of flour going into it.  I ended up with pans and pans and pans of cinnamon rolls.

I had them sitting all over the kitchen and even on the dining room table.  My family was in heaven – along with the neighbors.

  3. Remove dough from refrigerator and roll to 1/4-inch thickness. Spread with butter; sprinkle with lots of cinnamon and then sprinkle on the sugar.
