Epic Cinnamon Rolls
Recipe type: Breakfast
  • ½ cup warm water
  • 2 TBL yeast
  • 1 TBL sugar
  • 4 slightly beaten eggs
  • ½ pound butter (two sticks)
  • 2 cups milk
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 8 cups flour
Cinnamon filling
  • 1½ cups melted butter
  • 4 TBL Cinnamon
  • 1½ cups sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup melted butter
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1½ box powdered sugar
  • Milk to desired consistency
  1. In a KitchenAid bowl, mix together the water, yeast and sugar then let stand for 5 minutes.
  2. In a glass bowl, put the ½ pound butter (two sticks) and 2 cups milk and microwave until butter is just melted.
  3. Add 4 slightly beaten eggs, ½ cup sugar and 2 tsp salt to milk mixture blending well.
  4. Add this mix to your yeast mixture.
  5. One cup at a time, pour 4 cups of flour and mix well. Then add the next 4 cups of flour but at 1 tablespoon at a time. Mix for five minutes.
  6. Put dough in metal oiled bowl and let raise for 30 minutes. Punch the dough and let raise for another 30 minutes.
  7. Divide dough into two parts.
  8. Roll out one half onto floured board into an 8 x 12 rectangle. Spread half of your melted butter (3/4 cup) onto dough keeping ½ inch seam dry. I use a pastry brush. Mix together your cinnamon and sugar. Sprinkle half of the cinnamon sugar onto the buttered dough.
  9. Roll up dough lengthwise and then with a long piece of dental floss, cut into 1 to 1½ inch slices.
  10. Repeat with second half of dough
  11. Lay in a jelly roll or 9 x 13 pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
  12. Prepare frosting with frosting ingredients above. "Frost" the cinnamon rolls with the frosting. I like to do this when the rolls are still slightly warm.
  13. Serve and enjoy!
