Cinnamon Rolls ~ Quick and Easy


These really are the easiest/best cinnamon rolls. My daughter had asked me to bake cinnamon rolls today, so I finally tried this recipe that I have had around for a long time. They are quick and easy to make.

Cinnamon Rolls
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter

Scald milk. Stir in 1/4 cup sugar and butter. Set aside to cool.
~~~~~

1/2 cup warm water
2 Tablespoons yeast
1/4 cup sugar

Dissolve yeast and 1/4 cup sugar in warm water. Set aside for 5 minutes until bubbly.
~~~~~

2 eggs
1-teaspoon salt
5 to 6 cups flour, divided

Mix milk, yeast mixture, eggs, salt, and 2 cups flour in kitchen aid. Add enough remaining flour to make soft dough. Knead 5-10 minutes.
~~~~~

Spray counter top with cooking spray. Divide dough into thirds and roll each into a rectangle.
~~~~~

Butter, softened
Brown sugar
Cinnamon

Spread with softened butter; sprinkle liberally with brown sugar and cinnamon.

Roll up tightly and cut each roll into eighths. Place in three buttered cake pans.
~~~~~

Let rise in warm place until double.

~~~~~

Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes until light brown. (Servings: 24)
NOTE: My daughter likes them baked 10-12 minutes; my son likes them baked 12-15 minutes.
~~~~~

For the icing:
2 Tablespoons melted butter
2 cups confectioner's sugar
1 Tablespoon milk

Mix all ingredients until well blended and of spreading consistency.
