Cinnamon Roll Recipe

Here is the recipe!

There are two parts to the recipe. The first part is the basic roll recipe that you can make for just dinner rolls.

Basic Roll Recipe
2 cups milk
1/2 c. margarine
4 eggs
1/2 c. sugar
2 t. salt
8 c. flour
3 pkg. yeast
1/2 c. warm water

Scald milk. Add margarine to milk while scalding. Cool.

Beat eggs with sugar and salt.
Add this to margarine and milk mixture.

Add yeast to warm water. Set aside.

With mixer add 4 c. flour to egg mixture and yeast mixture. Mix well.

By hand add the rest of the flour. Mix well.

Put in greased bowl and let raise 1 hour. Punch down and let raise again. Make into rolls. (About a small handful of dough)

To make the rolls into cinnamon rolls you will need:
1/2 c. butter
1/3 c. brown sugar
1 c. sugar
1 T. cinnamon

Melt 1/4 c. butter. Add brown sugar and spread into bottom of pan. I used my metal Wilton cake pans and had to make more of this mixture to cover the bottoms.

Mix sugar and cinnamon. Melt other 1/4 c. of butter in separate bowl.

Take a roll and roll it until its about 5 inches long and dip into the butter. Dip into cinnamon and sugar until it is covered. Tie roll into a knot. (I know this would have been easier to understand with pictures but my hands were a little dirty.)

Put the rolls into a pan not too close but not too far apart :)

Let rise.

Bake 13-15 minutes or until slightly brown on top at 375 degrees.
