rolls – all the fun happens in the twisting and turning of the dough. For the free recipe

First, here’s what you need to make the dough… and this is what you’ll need to make the cinnamon
suger In a stand mixer add the warmed milk to the
yeast, eggs, sugar and salt to make a super simple dough
Using a paddle attachnment – stir Dump in the flour,
and mix until it’s all combined. Now drop room-temperature butter into the
dough, one tablespoon at a time. Turn up the speed and let it knead for about
3 minutes. If your butter is cool, this may take longer.
Cover the bowl loosely with plastic and let the dough rise for about 1 hour.
While that’s happening, we’ll mix together the cinnamon and sugars. I like to include
some brown sugar, because I love the flavor it adds.
Now that your dough is rested, it has just about doubled in size and you’re ready to
get rollin’. On a floured surface – divide the dough into
8 equal pieces. Shape each piece into a ball.
Then shape each ball into a rectangle that’s about 1/16-inch-thick.
Spoon the cinnamon sugar over the top, and press it into the dough,
so it won’t spill out when you roll the dough into a log.
Cut the log in half like this
and then twist it into a rope. Tuck the ends under so they won’t pop out while they’re
baking. Transfer the rolls to a parchment covered
baking sheet. Cover them and let them rest for an hour.
Bake in a preheated oven for about 20 minutes or until they are golden brown and set in
the middle. These cinnamon rolls smell incredible! Let
them cool for a few minutes before serving. Believe me – they won’t be around for long!
