Cinnamon Rolls!

 I love cinnamon rolls!
I mixed some up the other day, but before actually
reading through my recipe, I just 
started adding ingredients...
only to discover, it was the recipe that 
called for 14 cups of flour!
My mixer handled 12 cups, and I kneaded in the other 2!

 after kneading for 10 minutes, I let it rise for an hour.
 I split the dough in half...and froze half of it for later!
Then I split the half into fourths...
and rolled them into long rectangles
Then I mixed butter and brown sugar for the filling.
 Rolled up and sliced.
 Some I laid on a cookie sheet...
some I put in this decorative cupcake pan...
 They rise an hour and a half...and then bake for 10 minutes.
 I mixed up cream cheese frosting for the tops!
 So yummy!  Just what I wanted!
