Cinnamon Rolls, Texas Style

These unbelievable rolls are an adaptation of my mother's recipe. This recipe makes 36 large rolls, 12 per cookie sheet. The trick is to be patient and let them rise both in the bowl and on the sheets. I have used bread machine yeast and regular active dry yeast, both work fine. The bread machine yeast really goes nuts and is better if you have less time. Watch it though, it really rises fast. The frosting recipe and the motivation to make cinnamon rolls was inspired by the book, Peace Like a River by Leif Enger, a fantastic read. Hope you enjoy these monsters, they're a big hit at work.
