Jo Mama's Soft and Fluffy Cinnamon Rolls

I volunteered to make cinnamon rolls for a children's breakfast at our church. A bit nervous about the prospects, I tried out three more cinnamon roll recipes to be sure I ended up with perfect rolls. This recipe is adapted from a recipe in "A Real American Breakfast" by Cheryl and Bill Jamison. I tried a hint I got from a fellow cinnamon roll baker and it worked out great. She suggested NOT preheating the oven. Putting the dough in a hot oven stops the growth of the yeast quickly. She puts her rolls in a cold oven and as the oven heats up, the rolls have a chance to rise a bit more as they begin cook. I was apprehensive at first, but it worked out beautifully in my oven.
