Cinnamon Rolls

OK so I made a mass amount of Cinnamon Rolls, which I did on purpose. I wanted to see how well they would freeze and then be reheated. I have to say they did well. I wouldn't want to keep them frozen for more than 3 months. That's just me though. So anyways here you go:

Dry ingredients

Milk, butter, sugar, and salt

Add egg to dry ingredients

Mixed together :)
 ***Somewhere along the line I forgot to take pictures of rolling it out and adding the filling  to it, OOPS!

Roll her up

Cut into equal quarters, about a half inch I would say.



Prep: 45 Minutes
Rise: 1 hour and 30 minutes
Rest: 10 minutes
Bake: 20 minutes
Oven: 375 degrees
Makes 24 rolls
4 to 41/2 cups all purpose flour
1package active dry yeast
1 cup milk
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup butter or margarine
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
1/3 cup butter or margarine

  1. In a large mixing bowl combined 2 cups of the flour and the yeast; set aside. In a small saucepan heat and stir milk, granulated sugar, and 1/3 cup butter, and salt just until warm (120 - 130 degrees) and butter almost melts; add to flour mixture along with eggs. Beat with an electric mixture on low to medium speed for 30 seconds, scraping bowl. Beat on high speed for 3 minutes. Using a wooden spoon, stir in as much of the remaining 2-21/2 cups of flour as you can.
  2. Turn dough out onto a floured surface. Knead in enough remaining four to make a moderately soft dough that is smooth and elastic (3-5 minutes). Shape dough into a ball. Place dough in a lightly greased bowl, turn once to grease ball. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size (1 -11/2 hours).
  3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Divide in half. Cover and let rest 10 minutes. Lightly grease two baking pans; set aside. For filling, stir together brown sugar, 1/4 cup flour, and cinnamon; using a pastry blender or fork, cut in 1/3 cup butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Roll each dough half into a 12x8 inch rectangle. Sprinkle filling over dough, leaving 1 inch unfilled along one of the long sides. Roll up each rectangle, starting from the filled long side. Pinch dough to seal seams. Slice each rolled rectangle into 12 equal pieces. Arrange in prepared pans. Cover and let rise in a warm place until nearly doubled in size (30 minutes).
  5. Preheat oven to 375F. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden. Cool about 5 minutes; remove from pans. Enjoy!
