Giant Cinnamon Rolls

I've tried several cinnamon roll recipes and my husband always asks me to go back to this one. I love taking these to friends and family while they are still warm. They're always well received. It makes a big batch of large cinnamon rolls but they'll be eaten, guaranteed. I top each warm roll generously with frosting but I still usually have some leftover. You might want to reduce the amount you make. Just a suggestion. Note: I just made these last night as I haven't made them in quite awhile. I did a few things a little differently. First, I am getting better at working with bread dough that is very soft. A softer dough produces a lighter roll. Secondly, I baked them in glass pans. Glass pans are the only way to go. The brown sugar filling carmelized and the bottoms and sides of the rolls were a lovely golden brown. Last night, I enjoyed the best cinnamon roll I have EVER tasted. It was the combination of a light but thick roll, carmelized filling, and a warm ooey gooey cream cheese frosting. Be sure to watch the rolls carefully and do not overbake! It might take a few tries to figure out how much time and what temperature works best. PLEASE TRY!
