Oh. My. Goodness!
Really, that is all I can say. I am in loooove with these cinnamon rolls. I purposefully forgot I was watching what I was eating just so I could have a taste of this...
or maybe this...
You are drooling now, right?
Want the recipe? Of course you do! And it was really pretty easy.
Here you go:
1 C warm water (around 110 degrees)
2 1/4 tsp yeast
2 large eggs
3 T vegetable oil
1/2 C sugar
1/2 tsp salt
4 C flour
In a small bowl dissolve yeast in 1/2 C warm water. Let stand 5 to 10 minutes. In a stand mixer combine the rest of the water, eggs, oil, sugar, salt and 2 cups of flour, mix until combined. When the yeast is bubbly add to stand mixer along with 1 more cup of flour. Beat on medium-low for 8 minutes. Add in last cup of flour a little at a time until the dough no longer sticks to the sides and isn't too sticky. Beat for 2 more minutes. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and roll into a rectangle (12x20).
1/2 cube butter, room temperature
1 C powdered sugar
1 scant tbsp cinnamon
In a small bowl combine powdered sugar and cinnamon. Spread butter on the rolled out dough, and using a sieve, sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture over the top. Use as little or as much as you like. Starting at the 20-inch edge lightly roll the dough. Cut 2 inches apart and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Cover with a tea towel and let rise for 90 minutes. Preheat oven to 375, bake for 10-13 minutes.
4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
4 tbsp butter, at room temperature
2-3 C powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp milk
Cream butter and cream cheese together. Stir in sugar, vanilla and milk. Wisk until smooth. Spread over hot cinnamon rolls.
Then dive right in! But don't say I didn't warn you... they are Tasty.
