CindyJo's home made
Old fashioned Cinnamon Rolls
Tools, a bowl, pot, spatula, rolling pin and bare hands!
2 packets Fleischmann's yeast soaking in a cup of warm water
Cinnamon, Brown sugar, raisins and Butter, for use later.
8 oz. cream cheese, 1 box powdered sugar & vanilla, for frosting.
12 cups Flour
5 Tbsp. Sugar
4 Tsp. Salt
(mix above 3 items in a very large bowl)
Take 4 cups Milk -
heat till warm and then add 6 Tbsp. corn oil,
slowly add above to the flour mixture,
including the yeast mixture soaking in warm cup of water-
mixing with a large spoon gradually,
then when stiff, use hands to knead approx. 25 minutes,
occasionally slightly greasing edges
of bowl to keep from sticking,
then grease top of dough, cover with towel and let set till doubled
in bulk, being sure to allow no drafts.
Knead down again and then let sit 2 hours,
or whenever doubled in size,
once again knead down for about 10 minutes and cut away approx. 1/4 section to roll
out on floured counter top.
Roll section of dough to about half
Spread thick coat of butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and raisins.
Roll up lengthwise and slice off sections approx. one inch thick and place in a
coated with thin butter to keep from sticking.
Coat tops of rolls with small amount of melted butter, cover with saran wrap and
let rise approx. 45 minutes together with other pans of rolls.
Then bake at approx. 325 to 350 till golden brown, they don't take long, maybe 15
minutes or so depending on your oven.
When done and cooled off coat with white icing, I like to make
cream cheese frosting for mine using a
8 oz package of cream cheese,
1 small box of powdered sugar,
2 tsp. vanilla and 1/2 stick of butter.
PS You can use rapid or quick rise yeast also to cut back
on time if you prefer.
Yields approx. 4 to 5 Dozen rolls.
I freeze mine to keep them fresh longer.
I got this recipe from my dear old neighbor Lauretta Huff born in 1911 many many
years ago and
have made these rolls for some 25 years now!
On cold Fall and Winter days is when
Michelle would say, Mommy, lets make cinnamon rolls!!~
