These are NOT quick cinnamon rolls but they are yummy. They would make a great Christmas morning breakfast. You can make them the night before and bake when you roll out of bed. You and your family will love them.
Preparing the bread

1/4 c. water : (warmed to 105-110 degrees)
Dissolve yeast in the warm water. Use the large mixing bowl from the mixer.

1 3/4 c.-2 1/4 c. flour
