Cinnamon Rolls

I used the Yummy Dinner Rolls from my earlier post to make these cinnamon rolls. When I rolled out the dough I brushed melted butter on the dough and sprinkled it with a mixture of 1 cup of brown sugar and 1 tablespoon of cinnamon. Roll up and cut into rolls. Let rise and bake at 350° for about 20 minutes.
Here is the recipe again in case you missed it.

Yummy Dinner Rolls

In a separate bowl mix
6 beaten eggs
1/2 c. warm water
2 T. instant yeast
Set aside.

In large mixing bowl or Bosch, mix the following:
2 c. warm mashed potatoes
1 1/2 c. sugar
1 1/2 c. shortening
1 T. salt
3 c. hot water

Add 3 c. Krusteaz wheat and honey pancake mix and blend well.

Add yeast and egg mixture.
Add enough white flour for a nice dough and mix for 5-10 minutes until dough pulls away from the side of the bowl.

Let rise until double. (30 minutes)
Punch down and let rise again. (30 minutes)
Form into rolls, put on a greased pan and let rise again.

OMGoodness, lots of eggs AND mashed potatoes, these MUST be extremely moist. One quick question...when you say mashed potatoes, that just means mashed potatoes (without the cream and butter) right?

I just have to try these, thanks for sharing!!!

This time I used instant mashed potatoes without the cream and butter and it worked just fine. The extra leavening in the pancake mix makes them very light and fluffy.

Oh what an excellent idea, I would have NEVER thought of instant potatoes, that makes it VERY handy. Thanks so much for the reply. I am definitely making these tonight.

One more question (sorry for being such a pest) but I wanted to double check with you about the sugar and shortening amounts in the dinner role recipe. Thats the same amount of sugar I would use for a regular cake (so it will be a very sweet dinner roll?)Same with the shortening. Are these amounts for the dinner roll?
