Course Dessert


  • 1 c. warm milk
  • 2 eggs room temperature
  • 1/3 c. butter melted
  • 4 1/2 c. bread flour or regular flour bread flour makes them lighter
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 c. white sugar
  • 1 package yeast 1/4 oz.


  • 1 c. brown sugar packed
  • 2 1/2 T. ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 c. butter softened


  • 4 c. powdered sugar
  • 1 c. butter softened
  • 2-4 T. milk
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • Dash salt


  • Microwave milk for 45-60 seconds in the microwave, then pour it into a large bowl. Dissolve the yeast in the warm milk, then add sugar, butter, eggs, salt, and flour. Mix well, then after dusting your hands lightly with flour, knead dough into a large ball. Spray a large bowl with cooking spray, then place the ball in the bowl and cover tightly with plastic wrap. Let rise in a warm place for an hour, or until dough has doubled in size.
  • Mix brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Sprinkle flour on your surface, then roll out your dough into a rectangle. I try to keep it about 1/4 inch thick. Spread the dough with 1/3 c. softened butter, then sprinkle evenly with the brown sugar & cinnamon mixture. Roll up the dough starting on the longer side, and then use dental floss or baker's twine to cut the roll into approximately 12 rolls.
  • Place rolls in a lightly greased 9x13 glass baking dish. Cover and let rise until they've nearly doubled, about 30 minutes or so.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake rolls 18-20 minutes, or until golden brown. While rolls are baking, beat together the powdered sugar, butter, and 2 T. milk. Gradually add milk as necessary, until you get the right consistency. Add salt and vanilla, and beat well. Frost the cinnamon rolls while they are still warm!!! The frosting will melt down into the rolls, and they will be AMAZING! :)
