Mouth Watering Cinnamon Rolls

Ok friends, you are going to want to bookmark this recipe! So so yumm!! A year or so ago I tried a cinnamon roll recipe, and although they were tasty, I wasn’t head over heals for them (especially considering how much time it took to make them). Since then we have been obsessed with Trader Joe’s rolls ( if you haven’t yet, try them!!) but they cost $3.50 for a can of 5. Kinda pricey- especially when buying them once a week 😁.

I found this recipe and wanted to give it try. It seemed very similar to my bread recipe and only required 20min rise time! With two hungry girls+ one hungry hubs an hour rise time doesn’t work well… Here is the recipe, hope you enjoy

ingredients
dough
4-5cups AP flour
2 packages active dry yeast
1tsp salt
3/4c milk
1/2c water
1/2c melted butter
1/2c sugar
1 egg
filling
Melted butter for spreading
1/2c brown sugar
2tsp cinnamon
icing
1.5c powdered sugar
1TB butter, melted
1/8tsp vanilla
4-5 tsp hot water

First, mix 1 3/4c of flour, yeast and salt in bowl and set aside. Then heat milk, water, butter and sugar in a saucepan until butter is melted. Make sure temperature does not exceed 130F. Pour mixture into dry ingredients and mix well. Add in egg and an additional 1/2c flour. Once mixed switch to dough hook. Add in remaining flour 1TB at a time until dough forms a soft ball.

Pour dough onto a floured surface and knead a bit more until it is not sticky. Cover and let rise for 20 minutes. While dough is rising get filling together.

Mix brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Once dough has risen

Next, roll up your dough and pinch the seam tightly together.

Place pan in a 375 degree oven and cook for 15-20 minutes. While your rolls are baking, mix together your icing ingredients and set aside. You want your icing to be smooth and easy to spread.

Once your rolls are nice and golden on the top

These rolls were amazing!! Crisp outside with a soft doughy texture inside. Mixed with a rich cinnamon filling and topped with a sweet glaze. You can guarantee these will be making a regular appearance over here!!! Let me know what you think😃
