Having searched and searched for a tasty cinnamon roll recipe that doesn't require (1) a bread machine, (2) a stand mixer with a dough hook, and (3) oodles of time, I stumbled across the perfect recipe in a little recipe book in Ely, MN. Simple, tasty, and effective. A must.

Oh boy, were these tasty. You can never go wrong with brown sugar and dough, and these were no exception. I cut them about twice as large as they should have been, so we ended up with some pretty monstrous rolls. But tasty nonetheless. Will definitely make again.
