OK….I can officially die now….Seriously….I don’t understand how I have lived without eating these amazing Cinnamon Rolls everyday!!!!
Karl’s mom found this recipe about 30 years ago in a bread/pastry recipe book. She showed it to me and it does look like it’s 30 years old!! When someone keeps a recipe book for that long, you know the recipes in it are pure gold. It was indeed the fact for this book because I swear to god, this is the best Cinnamon Roll recipe you will ever eat!!! I mean i’m a fan of Cinnabon’s Rolls but this recipe beats the pants off of Cinnabon’s rolls!!! Plus it’s homemade!!! HELLO!!!!!
So be prepared to spend a couple of hours waiting for these little babies to rise but man, is the wait ever worth it!!!
Enough talking, get your baking on!!!
And the Cream Cheese Icing….OMG…
First step, let the yeast rise for 10 minutes
Mix the ingredients in
Knead the dough
Grease a bowl, put the dough in it and cover with a towel. Let rest in a warm place for about an hour to an hour and half or so.
I know you can’t see all that well but the dough has about doubled in size.
Punch the dough down and divide into 2. Roll each piece into a 18 x 9 in rectangle.
Sprinkle each rectangle with half the sugar mixture
Roll the dough length wise
Cut each log into 12 pieces, about 1 1/2 inch a piece.
Place the rolls in 2 x 9 inch rounded pans and let them rise for 30 minutes. (This is what they look like after the rise)
The icing consistency after it is mixed
Ice the rolls when they are still warm!
