This recipe came from one of my mom's cousins. The dough makes outta this world cinnamon rolls and also some stinkin' good dinner rolls. Depending on the size of cinnamon rolls you like, this recipe will make anywhere from 15 - 20 rolls.
Cinn-fully Delicious Cinnamon Rolls
2 cups milk
¼ cup butter
2 teaspoons salt
2 packages yeast
½ cup sugar
6 cups flour
Melt milk and butter in microwave, together, until very warm…about 1 ½ minutes. Set aside. In mixing bowl, with dough hook attachment, combine 2 cups of flour, salt, yeast and sugar. Set mixer speed on low and add milk/butter mixture. Add eggs one at a time. Mix well. Add remaining 4 cups of flour and mix until well blended. Place mixed dough on floured counter and knead until smooth…adding more flour as you go to keep dough from sticking. Grease a large bowl and place kneaded dough in bowl. Spray dough with a shot of Pam. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled…about 30 minutes.
Turn risen dough onto floured surface and cut in half. Roll each piece of dough out to a 9x13 rectangle. Spread dough with softened butter then sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar and brown sugar. Roll up from the 9” end and cut into 1” – 1 ½ “sections. Place in greased baking dish. Repeat with second half of dough. Let rolls rise for 30 minutes in a warm place.
Bake rolls in a 350 degree oven for 25 minutes or until golden brown on top. Spread with frosting.
½ stick butter
1 bag of powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Whip butter in mixing bowl. Add powdered sugar and vanilla. Add milk to achieve spreading consistency. Spread frosting on warm rolls.
