The only cinnamon rolls I've ever made were out of a can.
I am not very good with dough. I never know how long to knead it, it's always too sticky or too dry or I just can't roll it out.
So I was apprehensive to try homemade Amish cinnamon rolls.
Well, it turns out that the dough was quite sticky, I added a bunch more flour while mixing. It wasn't too hard to roll out though. Though, when I cut them, they didn't exactly turn out like pretty cinnamon rolls. More like cinnamon glops.
Turns out that cinnamon glops are just as good as cinnamon rolls! They were a little dry, I don't think I put much butter on the rolled out dough though. All in all, they were very good.
