I have a confession to make!
I gave in to temptation
and made Cinnamon Rolls!
My penance is
extra, extra miles to walk this week!
But I enjoy walking so it was a win/win
Here's my recipe~
4 & 1/2 teaspoons yeast
1/2 cup warm (105*-112*)
1/2 cup cooled, scalded milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon Sea Salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 farm fresh eggs
2 & 1/2 cups flour
Beat until smooth
2 - 2 1/2 cups more flour
until dough is workable.
Knead on lightly floured board until
smooth and elastic ~ about 5 minutes
Place in a greased bowl, turn dough and cover.
Let rise in warm place ( I use my oven pre-warmed
to lowest setting and then turned off)
until double in size,
about 1 hour.
Spread with butter (I used about 1/4 cup),
your favorite sugar (I used turbinato)
sprinkle with cinnamon (I used lots!)
Raisins are optional (but not at my house! They just
aren't proper cinnamon rolls without raisins!)
Slice into 12-15 slices.
Place in 9X13 greased baking dish
Let rise in warm place 1/2 - 1 hour
or near the top of dish.
