Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

CINNAMON ROLLS

Cinnamon Rolls
  • 2 pkgs. yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1/2 cup warm milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 4 1/2 cups flour
Dissolve yeast in warm water in large non-metal bowl. Add milk, sugar, ½ cup butter, salt and 2 cups flour. Stir well. Add remaining flour and knead slightly, forming a ball.

Grease large non-metal bowl. Put dough in bowl, then turn over so side with grease is now up. Cover loosely with plastic wrap, or a dish towel, and put in a warm place until doubled, about 1 ½ hours.

  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  • 1/2 cup raisings (optional)
After dough has risen, roll dough out to 12”x18” rectangle. Spread with ¼ cup melted butter. Stir together ¼ cup sugar and 2 tsp. cinnamon and sprinkle over melted butter. Sprinkle with walnuts and raisins if desired. Roll up lengthwise. Cut into 12 pieces. Place in greased 9×13” baking pan. Cover loosely with plastic wrap or dish towel and place in a warm place for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350° and bake for 30 minutes, or until golden on tops and edges. Let cool slightly, then drizzle with icing.

  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3-4 Tbsp. milk
Mix together powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and enough milk to make icing thin enough to drizzle over rolls.
Serve warm with butter.
Makes 12 rolls
