Sugar Free Holiday Cinnamon Rolls

Most of the time sugar is required to activate yeast but in this recipe, an extra pack of yeast is used to alleviate that requirement. While the carbs are high, these are fine for a special Holiday morning.  You can indulge knowing that you have not brought the sugar craving back to life. This recipe does contain wheat flour which is unusual for recipes here. The gluten in the wheat gives these rolls the characteristic stretchy texture of great cinnamon rolls.
