Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

If you are a fan of sweets you probably enjoy cinnamon rolls. I used to just buy them from the store but I decided to try making them at home. The results were fantastic. This is a bread machine recipe, so the bread machine does all the hard work for you. I have also included a recipe for the glaze, after all, what would cinnamon rolls be without the glaze? You can do the prep work and refrigerate them overnight if you want to bake them in the morning for breakfast. If you are new to making cinnamon rolls, don’t worry, these are very easy to make. With this article you are sure to impress your family and friends with this delicious treat. Enjoy.

¾ cup warm water (+plus 2 tablespoon of water)
2 tablespoons butter
2 ½ cups bread flour
¼ cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon bread machine yeast
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter (softened)
1 cup powdered  sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons milk

Cooking Instructions:

Step 1: Put ¾ cup warm water, 2 tablespoon warm water, 2 tablespoons butter, bread flour, ¼ cup granulated sugar, salt and bread machine yeast in a bread machine and start on the dough cycle.
Step 2: When dough is complete roll it out with a rolling pin on a floured surface into a 9” square.

Step 3: In a measuring cup mix cinnamon and granulated sugar. Spread the 2 tablespoons of softened butter over the dough and top with the cinnamon mixture. Roll up the dough tightly. Cut into 1” slices and place into a lightly greased baking dish. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rise for 1 hour.
Step 4: Remove plastic wrap and bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
Step 5: Meanwhile, in a bowl mix together powdered sugar, vanilla and milk. Drizzle over cinnamon rolls and serve.
(Makes About 9 Rolls)

    These have been on my list to do for a long time now but I will have to wait after Easter to make them because of the butter. They look beautiful.

    Bobby, I am VERY eager to make these but I do not have a bread machine, what do I do? =(

    Kent- Sorry but this is a breadmachine recipe. I would highly recommend a bread machine. They are inexpensive and will save you alot of time. I can see a few people want to make these without a bread machine so perhaps in the future I could post a recipe with no bread machine.

    WE LOVED IT! I made these for the first day of school and my son the cinnamon roll expert LOVED them. I also made them for the office staff at school and they loved them.

    Now, I’m making them for Christmas morning. (Along with Biscuits and Gravy & French toast). I just have to be awake EARLY!

    I made these tonight with this recipe. I didnt have a bread machine so i mixed it into a dough by hand and it worked out just as good. I put photos of my cinnamon rolls on facebook, and i added crushed almonds to the glaze. They are so yummy!!
