Cinnamon Rolls

This is the most WONDERFUL cinnamon roll recipe!! It was fairly simple, and they tasted absolutely incredible!! It was such a great recipe for the Halloween weekend, and I am already looking forward to making them again during this lovely holiday season.

Cinnamon Rolls


1 Cup warm water
1 Tbs sugar
2 Tbs yeast
1 Cup scalded milk
6 Tbs shortening
1tsp salt
7 Cups flour
3 whisked eggs
brown sugar
butter for spreading

Preheat oven for 375. In a small bowl  Mix water sugar and yeast (the mixture will begin to bubble).  In a small sauce pan, pour milk.  On medium high heat, wait for milk to be very warm-but do not let it boil.  In a large bowl mix milk, shortening, 1 cup of flour and whisked eggs.  Add the yeast mixture and then the remaining 6 cups of flour.  Dough will be very sticky.  Knead the dough until it is soft.   Put in a greased bowl and let it rise until it is double in size.  Once risen, knead again and roll into a big rectangle.  Spread with butter, and brown sugar, leaving about a half an inch on all sides. Sprinkle with cinnamon.  Roll the dough horizontally.  Using a piece of thread, wrap around the dough and slice one inch rolls.  arrange on cookie sheet, and let raise until double in size.  Bake at 375 for about 15 minutes.  The tops do not brown, so check the bottoms of the rolls to make sure they are done.

We glazed the top with a simple powdered sugar frosting.

2 cups powdered sugar
1 stick of butter
1 tsp vanilla
1-3 TBS milk

This can vary, so use your best judgement!! We doubled the frosting recipe because we LOVE  the cinnamon rolls to have A LOT of frosting :)

Hope you  enjoy!!!
