Where to start with these cinnamon rolls?

OK, let's start with this - they are wonderful! Tender, flavorful, easy. With this pan of rolls (they have been made many times) my daughter switched out 1/2 the all-purpose flour with pastry grind whole wheat flour. They were still tender, flavorful and delicious! So just make them, OK?

One Hour Cinnamon Rolls

adapted from:
serves 12
375 oven

1 c warm water
3/4 c room temperature buttermilk
1/2 c sugar
1/4 c melted butter
3 T regular yeast

2 eggs
5-6 c flour

3 T butter, melted
2/3 c brown sugar
2/3 c sugar
2 T cinnamon

1/4 c butter, softened
4 oz cream cheese, softened
3 c powdered sugar
1 t vanilla
enough milk or half and half to make it spreading consistency

In a bowl, mix together water, buttermilk, sugar, melted butter, and yeast. Allow mixture to sit 15 minutes.

Add in salt, eggs, and flour (start with the 5 cups, adding up to but not exceeding the 6 cups), mix for 10 minutes and allow to sit 10 minutes.

Prepare the filling by mixing together the melted butter, sugars and cinnamon. Set aside.

Out on a lightly floured surface, roll the dough into a 12X16 inch square.

Spread filling over the top and roll-up. Cut into 12 large rolls.

Place rolls on a cookie sheet covered with a slipat or parchment paper.

Bake at 375 15-20 minutes.

  1. One hour + cinnamon rolls? Count me in. I'm definitely giving these a try. I make yeasted 2-3 rolls, but would love to have a faster, homemade option.

  2. Oooo cinnamon rolls! They look really good :) I only ever make store brought ones in a can, but I might try these rolls, they don't sound too difficult!

  3. This sounds just like the recipe we made when I was in 7th grade cooking class. That was when girls took cooking and boys took shop. It was a homework assignment and we made them with friends. Sounds good!
