I need some clarification on this recipe. It says to divide dough. Into how many sections? It also says roll out to 6x36 and roll up jelly-roll style. Jelly rolls are rolled from short side to short side, which would leave a 6" tall, many-layered roll. Cutting it into 1" sections would give you 6 rolls. You would have to divide the original mound of dough into 8 sections to yield 4 dozen rolls. How thinly rolled would 1/8th of the original dough be when 6"x36"?Conversely, if you rolled long side to long side instead, you would have 36 rolls from just one section. If you divided the dough into two sections, you would have a total of 6 dozen rolls, and the author says the recipe yields 4 dozen. Neither one seems plausible. Finally, how much cinnamon and how much sugar is sprinkled onto the dough before rolling. Without this information, there's no way to make these as the author intended.

You divide dough in half. Roll the long side up. You should get 24 mini size rolls from each. You need 8 regular sized loaf pans (8 in) to place the 6 rolls in. Hope that helps.

Cover rolled out portion with 1/2 cup soft butter and sprinkle with the mixture of 1/2 cup of sugar and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Roll tightly, sealing edge. Cut into 1-inch pieces for a shallow pan or 2-inch pieces for a loaf pan. Mix brown sugar with 1 tablespoon of water. Stir in 3-4 tablespoons of soft butter. Heat together, then put in the bottom of the pan and place rolls on top. Bake about 30-35 minutes in a 350 degree oven or until done. Turn upside down onto a waxed sheet before removing from the pan.
