recipe:: easy cinnamon rolls

my mother in law gave me this recipe a few years ago.  these rolls are so yummy, sweet and addicting.

i've made these for pto meetings and bake sales at school.  they are foolproof and so easy to make.

it starts with a package of bridgeford ready dough that you get in the freezer section of the grocery store.  in fact the recipe is right on the package, with one small modification.  it contains 3 1lb loaves.  i usually make all 3 loaves and end up with about 54 rolls.  sounds like a lot but they go fast.

here's the recipe:
1 1lb. bridgeford ready dough loaf, thawed
3 tbsp. melted butter
1/4 c. granulated sugar
1/4 c. brown sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon

roll out the dough into a rectangle about 10x12.  i just roll it out to the thickness i like, trying to maintain the shape. brush the dough with 2 tbsp. of butter.

in a small bowl mix the sugars and the cinnamon.  sprinkle evenly on the dough.

starting at the longer side of the dough, roll it tightly.

cut the dough in half.  then cut each half into nine even slices.  place on a greased cookie sheet, cake pan or muffin tins cut side down.  brush with remaining butter and let it sit until it's doubled in size.

i make these the night before and then put them in the fridge overnight.
bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.

remove from the pan immediately so that they don't stick.  the butter and sugar will create a yummy, gooey syrup.

enjoy!  no frosting necessary but by all means add that if you want.
