Cinnamon rolls!When Jonathan and I were dating, I ventured to make them from scratch (first time making anything from scratch!) and from that point on, I have been "forced" to make them ever since. My wonderful hubby told me that those cinnamon rolls were really what won him over! He knew that if I could make them, then he could marry me!!!
I also love the way it makes my husband and children feel so special, feel loved and taken care of. I think this is my job! To love and take care of my boys. I also know how special it makes others feel to make them home made bread or cookies!
I think that everyone can do it! I think that everyone can make someone feel special by something home made!
- 1 pack active dry yeast
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 2/3 cups high gluten flour
- 1/3 stick of butter (softened)
- 2 large eggs
- 2/3 +1/8 cup (just a little more than 2/3 cup works) skim milk (warmed)
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 1/2 T cinnamon
- 1/3 cup butter
- (or enough just to cover the whole thing! I usually don't measure this!)
- 8 T butter
- 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1/4 cup cream cheese
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
When it has been an hour, put your ball on a floured surface and roll out.
Roll the dough out till it is about 1/2 to 1/4 inch thick. Then spread the softened butter all over it. Next is the cinnamon and sugar! The best part! Make sure it is covered all over so every roll has the yumminess!
Then pour on the icing and enjoy!!!
