Cinnamon Rolls

We just finished eating these for breakfast, and they are to die for! The most amazing cinnamon rolls, EVER! These cost about $0.40 a roll to make, and they are pretty easy (but, take a little time). I mixed the ingredients before making dinner, and let it rise while I was cooking and cleaning up. By then, it was time for the step. The second rising was done in the refrigerator overnight, so they would be ready for breakfast the next day.

1 Tbl yeast (I used rapid rise, but you could use active dry)
1 c milk
1/3 c white sugar
1/2 c melted butter
1 tsp salt
2 eggs
4 c flour
1/4 c butter, softened
1 c brown sugar
3 Tbl cinnamon
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
milk or water 
  • Warm milk in microwave for 1 minute. Dissolve yeast and 1 Tbl of the white sugar in warm milk.
  • Mix the rest of the sugar, butter, salt, eggs, and flour.
  • Add the yeast mixture to the flour mixture and mix well.
  • Knead into a ball. Let rise until double in size.
  • Roll out to a big rectangle about 1/4 inch thick
  • Spread with filling: spread butter on dough, sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar mixture
  • Roll up and slice into 1 inch slices-I rolled starting at a short end of the rectangle-so we had 8 fat cinnamon rolls. If you want a lot of smaller cinnamon rolls you could roll from the long end.
  • Place in a greased 9x13 pan. Cover loosely with clear plastic wrap.
  • Let rise overnight in refrigerator (or rise until doubled, if you do it all in one day).

  • The next morning...Bake @ 400 for 10 minutes (or until lightly browned)
  • For icing, mix 1 c powdered sugar and 1 tsp vanilla in a small bowl. Add milk or water 1 tsp at a time until you get the right consistency for icing. Drizzle on warm rolls.
