Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

Who doesn't love a warm freshly made Cinnamon Roll with frosting melting all over the top? This time of year is perfect for making them. They are great gifts for neighbors, co workers; anyone on your gift giving list. Making Cinnamon Rolls is not all that hard. The dough for these rolls can be refrigerated overnight so that you can pop them in the oven for a quick breakfast; freeze the raw dough then bake, or partially bake and then freeze them. If you have never made Cinnamon Rolls before I urge you to try these. 

Start with the Butter Buns recipe here. The Butter Buns recipe may seem at bit intense but I don't go through the whole process as Mrs. M instructed. I warm the milk in the microwave first, finishing it off in the pan. I don't put it into warm water in the sink, or knead it for ten minutes; I only knead the dough for perhaps two minutes. I have even made the dough in my food processor and it is fine. So with that said, first make the Butter Buns dough recipe and then........

Bake them until they are browned on top.

For the cream cheese frosting I simply beat 8 oz of room temp cream cheese with 1 tsp of vanilla extract then beat in about 16 oz of powdered sugar. This makes too much really but then I have some frosting left over to serve on the side for those who like a lot of frosting.

  1. I made the butter buns at Thanksgiving time. I thought it would be harder/messier than it actually was. They were delicious. I'll try the cinnamon rolls, maybe for New Years.

  2. OMG!! This was not at all fair! it is only 7:30 AM and all I have had is a gallon or so of coffee and I so want cinnamon rolls now!
