INGREDIENTS

Cinnamon Rolls

DIRECTIONS

  • In small bowl, combine warm water and yeast; let stand 10 minutes. Heat 1 cup milk until hot, but not boiling.
  • In large bowl, combine hot milk, 6 tablespoons melted butter, sugar and salt; stir to dissolve sugar. Cool to warm. Add the dissolved yeast and egg. Add 4 cups of flour, 1 cup at a time, mixing between each addition. Dough should be soft but firm enough to work with.
  • Turn dough out onto a floured work surface. Knead, adding additional 1 cup flour as needed, until smooth and elastic (about 8 minutes). Place oil in large bowl; transfer dough to bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover; let rise until doubled in size (about 1½ hours).
  • Meanwhile, combine brown sugar and cinnamon. Punch dough down; turn out onto a floured work surface. Roll dough out into a 15x10-inch rectangle. Brush with remaining 2 tablespoons melted butter. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture. Roll up, starting on the long edge. Cut into 12 rolls. Place rolls into a greased 13x9-inch baking pan. Let rise until doubled in size (about 1 hour).
  • Bake in a preheated 350°F oven 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Meanwhile, in medium bowl, combine softened cream cheese, powdered sugar and remaining ¼ cup milk. Using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat until light and fluffy. When rolls are done, spread cream cheese frosting over warm rolls.
