Cinnamon Rolls

This is NOT a quick recipe for cinnamon rolls


Roll recipe
1/2 - 1 stick of butter
1 cup sugar (white or brown)
*see below


Make dough for roll recipe as directed.

Split dough into sections. *I find it easier to work with if I divide dough into thirds.
Roll dough into rectangle.

Melt 1/2 - 1 stick of butter.
Mix sugar and cinnamon (amount based on your preference) in small bowl.
Brush melted butter onto dough.
Sprinkle sugar mixture over dough.
Roll up dough, pressing seams together.

Cut rolled dough every 1-1 1/2 inches.
Place on baking sheet or lipped pan, about 1 inch apart.
Let rise 1 hour or until doubled in size.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes.

Makes 3-4 dozen.

Additional Notes
* Extra added ingredients: raisins, craisins, or zested orange peel.
Top with your favorite frosting or glaze! Our family enjoys both vanilla frosting and cream cheese frosting. But if we make our cinnamon rolls with orange zest, we enjoy an orange glaze!
