Cinnamon  Rolls

 

 

 

 

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup milk

1/2 cup butter

1 cup water

1 tablespoon active dry yeast

1 teaspoon salt

2 eggs

6 cups all-purpose flour

 

 

FILLING

 

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

2 cups dark brown sugar

1/2 cup butter, softened

 

 

GLAZE

 

2 cups confectioners sugar

1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

1 tablespoon butter, softened

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 tablespoons milk 

 



DIRECTIONS:

 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  
 

Warm the milk in a small saucepan until it bubbles, then remove from heat.

Mix in the butter; stir until melted.

Add water and let cool until lukewarm.

 

In a large bowl, combine the milk mixture, yeast, white sugar,

salt, eggs and 2 cups flour; stir well to combine.

 

Stir in the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, beating well after each addition.

 

When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface

and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes.

 

Divide dough into two pieces.

Roll each piece into a 12x9 inch rectangle.

 

In a bowl, stir together the cinnamon and brown sugar.

Spread each piece with half of the butter, half of the brown sugar and cinnamon mixture.

Roll up dough, using a little water to seal the seam.

 

Cut each roll into 12 slices using a very sharp knife.

 

Place rolls onto two 9x13 inch greased baking pans.

Cover and let rise until almost doubled, about 1 hour.

 

Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown.

 

To make frosting; combine confectioner's sugar, cream cheese, butter and vanilla.

Add milk gradually until frosting reaches a spreading consistency.

Spread over warm (but not hot) cinnamon rolls.
