Cinnamon Rolls baking in the oven on a lazy weekend morning…….nothing smells better!

Make these ahead and just bake them in only 30 minutes.  What could be easier?


Ingredients for dough:

5-6 cups flour

2 pkg. yeast

1/2 c. sugar

1  1/2 tsp. salt

1 stick softened butter

1  1/2 c. very hot water

2 eggs (room temperature)


Ingredients for filling:

1/2 stick melted butter

1/2 c. sugar

4 tsp. cinnamon

Ingredients for Icing:

1 c. powdered sugar

2 Tbs. milk

1/2 tsp. vanilla

Combine 2 cups flour, yeast, sugar and salt in mixing bowl.  Stir well to blend.  Add softened butter.

Add hot water to ingredients in bowl all at once.  Beat with electric mixer at medium speed for 2 minutes.  Add eggs and 1 cup more flour.  Beat with electric mixer at high speed for 1 minute.

Stir in remaining flour gradually with wooden spoon.  Knead 5-10 minutes.  Cover with plastic wrap, then towel.  Let rest for 20 minutes.

Roll out into a rectangle (12″x18″).  Drizzle 1/2 stick melted butter over dough. Sprinkle 1/2 c. sugar and 4 tsp. cinnamon.  Roll up and cut into 3/4 inch slices.  Put in baking pan greased with a small amount of butter and refrigerate 2 to 48 hours.

Let stand at room temperature while oven is pre-heated to 375 degrees (let stand at room temperature 30 minutes to 1 hour if refrigerated for a long time).  Bake for 30 minutes.   Mix together icing ingredients and put on rolls while still piping hot.
