Cinnamon Rolls

My sweet little boy asked if we could have Cinnamon Rolls for breakfast Thursday morning.   Unfortunately, I was not keen on getting up at 4:00 am to have fresh rolls ready at 7:00 am.  So, I promised I'd have them made for Friday morning.  Here is my recipe, a few pictures and a couple of helpful hints.

2     1/4-oz packages dry yeast
1     teaspoon salt
1/2  cup sugar
1     egg
1/3  cup cooking oil
2     cups warm water (120 degrees - 130 degrees)
5     cups flour
1/2  cup butter, softened
1/2  cup white sugar
1/4  cup brown sugar
1     tablespoon ground cinnamon
2 1/2  tablespoons whipping cream
1/4     teaspoon vanilla
1        tablespoon butter, softened
1 1/2  cups powdered sugar
pinch of salt
Put first 6 ingredients in blender and blend on high until thoroughly incorporated. 

 In large a bowl, pour blender mixture over flour.  Mix well. 
 Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise until doubled...about an hour.

Mix sugars, butter and cinnamon together until a paste is formed.

I cover my workspace with plactic wrap (makes clean up so much quicker,) and sprinkle with flour.

Punch down dough.  Dough may be refrigerated at this point until ready to roll out rolls.


Divide dough into two parts.

Roll out dough by hand into a rectangular shape.


Spread half of cinnamon-sugar mixture on dough (reserving other half for 2nd piece of dough.)

Carefully roll up dough.

Cut into equal pieces.

Put in buttered cake pan and let rise until doubled.
 ( At this point I usually cover with plastic wrap and put in fridge.  They will rise overnight and be ready to bake in the morning.  Just put out 15 minutes or so before baking.)
(If I'm sharing with friends this is the point where I wrap them up to deliver.)

  If you are baking them same day, let rise again until doubled.
  Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 18 - 20 minutes.


To make glaze, put all ingredients into blender and mix. 
 Scrape into plastic ziploc bag to make icing rolls quick and easy.

While still warm out of the oven, ice with the glaze.

Your homemade cinnamon rolls caught my hungry eye this am when they appeared in my blog roll courteousy of Tatertots and Jello. Of course with something so yummy looking I had to become a reader of yours too! Oh and love all the cake balls! Are the ones with Oreos like cookies and cream?

Can't wait to see all your fantastic ideas!

Hello, I linked up with you from Jen's blog. Thanks for the recipe. I have not made cinnamon rolls in a while and you have inspired me to make them again.... and give as gifts as well. I am a retired home ec teacher. I used to have my cooking classes make cinnmon rolls but I must have gotten burned out(literally). You have rekindled my sweet tooth for rolls.
