My favorite Cinnamon Roll recipe -- A Christmas Morning tradition!
  • CourseBrunches & Bread
Ingredients
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 stick butter
  • 2 pkg. dry yeast, dissolved in ¼ warm water
  • 1 cup milk
  • 5 cups flour (2 can be whole wheat)
Instructions
  1. ♦ Beat eggs, add sugar, salt and yeast mixture.
    ♦ Melt butter, add milk and let warm.
    ♦ Add to the egg mixture, and stir in the flour.
    ♦ Place in a well-buttered bowl, cover with a damp towel, and let rise until doubled, 1-2 hours.
    ♦ Turn out onto a well-floured counter top and knead, 20 turns.
    ♦ Roll out dough into 2 rectangles, about 9 X 13” each
    ♦ Spread with soft butter and sprinkle generously with cinnamon, brown sugar…nuts, raisins, your choice.
    ♦ Roll up, log edges, so that you end up with two 13” long logs. Cut into 1-2 inch slices.
    ♦ Place on a greased cookie sheet, or in two 9X13” pans. Let rise until doubled.
    ♦ Bake a 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes, longer if they’re going to rise and 'touch' each other than if you’re making individual rolls on a baking sheet.
    ♦ They’ll be a pretty golden color when they’re done.
  2. ♦ Frost with a simple glaze of ¼ cup melted butter, 2 cups powdered sugar and a splash of milk.
Terri's Notes

~ My first adventure in breads was a disaster that the dog and cats wouldn‘t eat. Keep at it!
~  The trick is in learning not to add too much extra flour, you’ll get the hang of it.
~  This dough makes good caramel rolls too.

    To make it easy and a little healthier I use frozen whole wheat dough
    Thaw and roll into rectangle. Spread with a mix of brown sugar coconut oil and cinnamon then sprinkle with pecan pieces. Roll from the long edge and slice the same as the above recipe. My glaze is just powdered sugar and milk and I add cinnamon and vanilla to it. Tastes great and less fat
