The cinnamon roll recipe.
I got it from allrecipes.com via pinterest. I've made a few changes because the original recipe tells you how to make it using a breadmaker. If you have a breadmaker, definitely do the allrecipes.com version. (Just so you know, I'm not a brilliant baker. The instructions sans breadmaker were on the all recipes website in the comments.)
If you don't have a breadmaker, you can use this recipe:
Makes 12 cinnamon rolls
1 cup warm milk
2 1/2 teaspoons yeast (can use rapid rise if you want)
2 eggs room temperature
1/3 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup white sugar
4 1/2 cups bread flour
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons cinnamon
1/3 cup butter, softened
1/2 8 ounce block of cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla (I accidentally put in a whole teaspoon but it was fine)
1/8 tsp salt
-Dissolve yeast in warm milk
-Mix in eggs, butter, salt, and sugar
-Add flour slowly and mix well
-Put in a bowl and let rise in a warm place for about an hour or until doubled in size. (I preheated my oven to 200 degrees, then turned it off and let my dough rise in the oven.)
-Just before you roll out the dough, mix together the brown sugar, cinnamon, and butter filling. One thing I wish I would have done was cook it on the stove until the sugar and butter had all melted together. I'm not sure how to do this, I would probably just wing it. But I'd say maybe cook it in a small pot on medium, stirring constantly until smooth? *shrug* You can do it either way. Sprinkling it all onto the rolled out dough, mixing it together and spreading it that way, or cooking it first.
-Okay, now roll out the dough to about a 16x21 inch rectangle or until the dough is about 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch thick.
-Spread your cinnamon and brown sugar mixture over the dough.
-Carefully roll it up.
-Here's a cool trick my friend taught me to cut the cinnamon rolls: Use a 12 inch piece of dental floss. Place it under the roll of dough, bring the ends together, and pull around the roll, tightening the loop until the floss cuts the roll. VERY handy and your rolls come out lovely and round.
-Place in a greased pan side by side and let rise another 1/2 hour to an hour.
-Bake rolls in preheated oven (400 degrees) for about 15 minutes or until golden brown.
-Meanwhile, mix up your frosting, beating all ingredients together until smooth.
-Spread frosting on hot cinnamon rolls so it gets all melty and delicious.
-Enjoy! They're best while still hot and the brown sugar is still gooey.
