I posted this recipe at allrecipes.com.  This roll was frosted when it was still a
bit warm, so it melted a bit.
From the kitchen of Stephanie Knewasser.  Use of a
bread machine makes these a snap to put together.  I
think they're wonderful fresh, but they don't freeze well.  
If the rolls aren't gone by the following day, micro 10-20
seconds before eating for fresh from the oven taste.  
UPDATE: I've changed the
filling sugar from granulated
sugar, to brown sugar.
