Go to Cinnamon Rolls

Cassie Sorensen
1 cup warm water
1 Tbl. yeast
1/4 cup sugar

Proof yeast.  Add to that:
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups flour

Mix well.  Add to that:
1 egg
1/8 cup oil
1 1/2 more cups flour (add 1/2 cup at a time)

Raise 1/2 hour or until dough is doubled in size.  Roll out onto a lightly floured or oiled surface (I prefer oil or cooking spray).  Roll out into a 16×21 inch rectangle (I just eyeball this but roll it out as big as you can).

1/3 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 1/2 Tbl. cinnamon

In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon.  Spread dough with butter and sprinkle evenly with sugar/cinnamon mixture (go all the way to the edges).  Roll up dough and cut into 12 rolls.  Place rolls in a lightly greased 9×13 pan, cover and let rise until nearly doubled.  Bake rolls at 375 for 12-15 minutes until edges are golden brown.

3 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/8 tsp. salt

Beat together frosting ingredients and spread on warm rolls.

***The dough recipe is also my regular roll recipe and that will make one 9×13 pan of 15 rolls.  Make the dough, let rise until doubled, form dough balls, place in greased pan and let rise again until doubled.  Bake at 375 12-18 minutes until golden brown and brush with melted butter.

I'm a mommy who has the privilege of staying home with my three little mouths to feed and two big mouths who love to eat. I'm a believer in moderation so all of these might not be the healthiest recipes, but there is a variety and I believe in eating that way and not leaving anything out. I love good food, I like to cook, I'm not that great at it but I'm always up to try new things, share recipes and eat some more!! These are a collection of random recipes that I have in stored in a bunch of different places...this is my attempt to become more organized, so enjoy and let me know if any of these are yummy to you.
