Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

Cinnamon Rolls
  • 2 pkgs. yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1/2 cup warm milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 4 1/2 cups flour
Dissolve yeast in warm water in large non-metal bowl. Add milk, sugar, ½ cup butter, salt and 2 cups flour. Stir well. Add remaining flour and knead slightly, forming a ball.

Grease large non-metal bowl. Put dough in bowl, then turn over so side with grease is now up. Cover loosely with plastic wrap, or a dish towel, and put in a warm place until doubled, about 1 ½ hours.
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  • 1/2 cup raisings (optional)
After dough has risen, roll dough out to 12”x18” rectangle. Spread with ¼ cup melted butter. Stir together ¼ cup sugar and 2 tsp. cinnamon and sprinkle over melted butter. Sprinkle with walnuts and raisins if desired. Roll up lengthwise. Cut into 12 pieces. Place in greased 9x13” baking pan. Cover loosely with plastic wrap or dish towel and place in a warm place for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350° and bake for 30 minutes, or until golden on tops and edges. Let cool slightly, then drizzle with icing.
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3-4 Tbsp. milk
Mix together powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and enough milk to make icing thin enough to drizzle over rolls.
Serve warm with butter.
Makes 12 rolls
