  • 3 tablespoons of cinnamon
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • For the glaze:
  • 2 cups of powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons of milk

Instructions

To activate the yeast:

  1. Warm up 1 cup of milk until it's just slightly warm.
  2. Stir in 1 tablespoon of sugar and 2 ¼ teaspoons of active dry yeast. Let it sit and activate for a few minutes until it gets foamy.

For the dough:

  1. In a large bowl, mix together 4 ½ cups of all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon of salt, and 1/3 cup of sugar.
  2. Add in 1 large egg and 1/2 cup of softened butter at room temperature.
  3. Pour in the activated yeast mixture and mix until a dough forms.

For the filling:

  1. In a separate bowl, combine 1/2 cup of softened butter with 3 tablespoons of cinnamon and 1 cup of sugar until it's smooth and spreadable.

Now, let's roll:

  1. On a floured surface, roll out the dough into a rectangle.
  2. Spread the cinnamon-sugar mixture evenly over the dough.
  3. Starting from one long side, tightly roll up the dough into a log.
  4. Slice the log into even pieces and place them in a greased baking dish.

Time to bake:

  1. Cover the rolls with a clean kitchen towel and let them rise for about 30-45 minutes.
  2. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Once the rolls have risen, bake them for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.

For the glaze:

  1. In a bowl, whisk together 2 cups of powdered sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract, and 3 tablespoons of milk until smooth.
  2. Drizzle the glaze over the warm cinnamon rolls.

Serve these soft, fluffy, and utterly delicious Cinnamon Rolls and watch them disappear in no time! Enjoy every gooey bite!
