I found this recipe on Recipe Zaar a couple of weeks ago. Last weekend I failed at it but I was determined to not let it beat me so I tried again this morning. For some reason I struggle with getting dough to rise up here. I have to put it in a warm oven with a wet dishcloth over the top to have it double. So that being said these were delicious! I would definately make them again and wanted to share the recipe. It's a knock off recipe from Cinnabon. I used the yummy cinnamon from Costco and it was delish!
Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls Recipe #76864
1¼ hours | 1 hour prep | SERVES 12
|1 (1/4||ounce) package dry yeast|
|1||cup warm milk|
|1/2||cup granulated sugar|
|1||cup packed brown sugar|
|2 1/2||tablespoons cinnamon|
cup butter, softened
|1 1/2||cups powdered sugar|
|1/4||cup cream cheese|
- For the rolls, dissolve the yeast in the warm milk in a large bowl.
- Add sugar, margarine salt, eggs, and flour, mix well.
- Knead the dough into a large ball, using your hands dusted lightly with flour.
- Put in a bowl, cover and let rise in a warm place about 1 hour (again it took me a lot longer for these to rise) or until the dough has doubled in size.
- Roll the dought out on a lightly floured surface, until it is approx 21 inches long by 16 inches wide.
- It should be approx 1/4 thick.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 375 if you're using a dark pan.
- To make filling, combine the brown sugar and cinnamon in a bowl. Note I added 2 Tbsp of flour so the filling doesn't run out of the dough during baking.
- Spread the softened butter over the surface of the dough, then sprinkle the brown sugar and cinnamon evenly over the surface.
- Working carefully, from the long edge, roll the dough down to the bottom edge.
- Cut the dough into 1 3/4 inch slices, and place in a lightly greased baking pan. I wouldn't use a 13x9 because the middle ones won't get done. We used a deep dish pie plate or an 8x8 and it would fit 4 to 5 rolls in the pan. They rise a bit during the baking.
- Bake for 10 minutes or until light golden brown.
- While the rolls are baking combine the icing ingredients.
- Beat well with an electric mixer until fluffy.
- When the rolls are done, spread generously with icing.
