Cinnamon Rolls

Now that fall is here, all those great, comfy foods that we love have alsostarted to surface, so I thought today was the perfect day for some cinnamon rolls.

Heat the milk and add the yeast. Let it sit fot a few minutes.

Then add the eggs, salt, sugar, butter, and flour. Let the dough rise for about an hour.

Shape the dough into a rectangle, and spread with the filling.Roll up, cut, and set to rise again.

Meanwhile, make the frosting.

When the rolls have risen, bake. Then frost.

 

Recipe:
(from Cook, Bake & Decorate)
1 cup whole milk
2 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
1/2 cup white sugar
2 large eggs
1/3 cup butter, melted
4 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
1/3 cup butter, melted
3 oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Warm the milk in a small saucepan until it’s about 105 degrees.
Stir the yeast and a pinch of sugar into the milk in the bowl of a stand mixer. Let stand until foamy, about 5 minutes.
Add the sugar, butter, salt, eggs, and flour and mix well. Knead with the dough hook on medium speed for about 4 minutes, or until the dough is smooth.
Shape the dough into a ball, place in a bowl (the mixing bowl is fine) and cover with a damp towel. Let rise in a warm place about 1 hour or until dough has nearly doubled in size.
In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon and mix well.
Sprinkle some flour on your work surface and lightly flour a rolling pin. Roll the dough into a 16×21 inch rectangle about 1/4 inch thick.
Brush the dough with 1/3 cup melted butter and sprinkle evenly with sugar-cinnamon mixture.
Roll the dough up starting with the longer side and cut into 12 rolls.
Arrange the rolls in a lightly greased 9×13 inch glass baking dish. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and let rise for about 30 minutes.
While the rolls are rising, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake until golden brown, about 18-20 minutes.
While the rolls are baking, make the frosting. Beat together the cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract. Spread the frosting on the rolls while they are still warm.
