Bake For The Cure Baking Contest! Part 6-Cinnamon Rolls!!


Wow, the final recipe for the Bake For The Cure baking contest! Before I share our last recipe, I want to thank ACH Food Companies for letting me participate. I have really enjoyed being a part of this great contest.

As our final recipe, I decided to bake Cinnamon Rolls. Personally I love cinnamon rolls for breakfast, and as a snack during the day. They're the perfect sweet treat! And this recipe is one of my favorites:

Cinnamon Rolls

Ingredients:
Dough-
1/4 oz. package Fleischmann's Rapid Rise Yeast
1/2 cup Warm Water
1/4 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Warm Milk
1/3 cup Butter
1 tspn. Salt
1 Egg
3 1/2-4 cups Flour

Filling-
1/2 cup melted Butter
3/4 cup Sugar
2 tablespoons Ground Cinnamon
3/4 cup Raisins, Walnuts or Pecans (optional)

Glaze-
4 tablespoons Butter
2 cups Powdered Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla
3-6 tablespoons Hot Water

Directions:
In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water and set aside. In a large bowl, mix milk, sugar, butter, salt and eggs. Add 2 cups of flour and mix until smooth. Add yeast mixture.  Mix in remaining flour until dough is easy to handle. Knead dough on lightly floured surface for 5-10 minutes. Place in well-greased bowl and let rise until doubled (about 1 1/2-2 hours).
When doubled, punch down dough. Roll out on floured surface into a 15x9-inch rectangle. Spread melted butter all over dough. Mix sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over buttered dough. (Sprinkle with walnuts, pecans or raisins if desired). Beginning at 15-inch side, roll up dough and pinch edge together to seal. Cut into 12-15 slices. Coat bottom of 13x9 baking pan with melted butter, and sprinkle with sugar.  Place cinnamon roll slices closely together in pan, and let rise until dough is doubled (about 45 minutes). Bake at 350 degrees or until nicely browned.
Meanwhile, mix butter, powdered sugar and vanilla. Add hot water 1 tablespoon at a time until glaze reaches desired consistency. When rolls are done, cool for 10 minutes. Spread glaze over cooled rolls.

Ahhh, homemade Cinnamon Rolls=delicious!


Let me tell you, this recipe may require a little more time and effort than what you'd like, but the cinnamon rolls are definitely worth it!!! These are the absolute BEST cinnamon rolls I have ever tasted! Even without the added nuts, these are great! Very rich, sweet and gooey...you can't get enough of them!


And now, for the last time...I need your help with comments! Please neighbors, we are almost at the finish, and you all have been such a help already. Please leave a comment! Even just saying they look yummy would be a huge help to me!

I love cinnamon rolls! For a quick breakfast treat, you can prepare the night before and let it do it's final rise in the fridge overnight. Cover with lightly greased saran wrap. In the morning just pop'em in the oven and continue as directed.
