Then I want to share with you a recipe for the cinnamon rolls that I made yesterday. I used one of the cinnamons that I was blessed with from a swap! The recipe makes about 2 dozen good sized rolls...this morning there were 5 left...glad I took the picture when I did!
1c warm milk
2 1/4t yeast
6T softened butter
1T vegetable oil
Dissolve yeast in the warm milk. Combine remaining ingredients then add the yeast mixture. Mix well and knead until a nice slightly sticky dough forms. Let rise to double.
3/4c brown sugar
Punch down the dough and divide into two pieces. Roll out 1 piece of dough to about 18"x 12". Brush on 1/2 of the melted butter. Sprinkle on 1/2 of the cinn./sugar. Roll up (for large ones start with the 12" side for smaller rolls start with the 18" side) and then cut into 1 1/2" slices. Place close together in a 9x13 inch greased pan. Repeat with the other dough. Let rise again for 30-35 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30min. I cover them with foil when they start to brown or they "are burned" (fussy family).
And lastly, what you have all been waiting for...
