Cinnamon Rolls

These were AMAZING!!!!!!! Seriously the best cinnamon roll I've ever had! (I somehow didn't get a picture with the frosting on)

I got this recipe from sisterscafe

Cinnamon Rolls

2 Cups milk

2 cubes (1 Cup) butter

2 TBS yeast

1/3 Cup warm water

1 1/3 Cup Sugar

1 tsp salt

4 beaten eggs

8 Cups flour

1 cube softened butter

Lots of cinnamon


Heat milk and 2 cubes of butter until the butter is melted. Cool and set aside. Mix the yeast and water, let stand for 5 minutes. Add cooled milk mixture, sugar, salt and eggs. Add 4 cups of flour and mix then gradually add the rest of the flour until it is the right consistency (Firm but not sticky). Cover and put in a warm place and rise for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, it should be nearly double in size. Separate dough into 2 equal pieces and dump out onto a floured surface and knead a little. Roll out into a rectangle that is 1/2 inch thick. Spread on 1/2 cube butter onto this half of the dough, completely covering it. Sprinkle a layer of sugar. Then put a generous layer of cinnamon.

Oh yeah, I added a little bit of brown sugar too.

Roll up tightly into a long roll, pinch the edges and cut with a piece of thread. Place on a cookie sheet (cover with parchment paper if you have it). Do the same thing with the other half of dough. Cover with a clean dish towel and put into a warm place without drafts.

Raise for 2-5 hours, until doubled in size, I let mine rise for 3 1/2 hours. Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes, just until they are barely browned. Remove from oven and let them sit for 5 minutes. Drizzle with glaze while still warm. Makes 3-4 dozen.

Butter Cream Glaze

1 cube (1/2 cup) softened butter
1 tsp vanilla
dash of salt
dash of cream of tarter
1 1/2 lbs powdered sugar
scalded milk or cream

Add all together adding milk a little at a time, alternately with the powdered sugar until desired consistency is reached. It needs to be a little thinner than regular icing.

YUM YUM YUM!!!! I highly recommend making these! (but it makes a ton so make them for lots of people or give some away :))
