We had a senior sister missionary in our ward for awhile who made these delicious hot rolls...they were soooo good! She was serving in our ward when I had Lil and would bring them to me all the time as a treat. I have made them a few times since and they are really easy and not much effort at all really...it helps if you have a big mixer with a dough hook though, otherwise you will have to make them by hand as with most bread recipes. This recipe makes 32 rolls.
Sister Jorgansen's Hot Rolls

2 1/2 cups plain flour
Beat these together well with a mixer.
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup oil
1/2 Tbs salt
3 1/2 cups plain flour

Remove from mixer.
With your hands, knead in enough flour to make a nice soft but not sticky dough.

To make cinnamon scrolls:
Take one of the 4 pieces of divided dough and roll into a rectangle about the size of an A4 piece of paper. Spread mixture of butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, raisins, nuts, whatever you like over the top. Roll from the long side. Cut into 12 pieces with a thread and bake. Drizzle with icing while still warm.
This dough can also be used for pizza crust, bread sticks or french bread.
