Hi everyone! I've been so bad about posting, but I'm trying to get back into it. Today I'm sharing the recipe for cinnamon rolls - I made these for Father's Day and they are so good!
I used the recipe from the KitchenAid Stand Mixer manual. These take a while to make, so if you're planning on having them for breakfast, I recommend making them the night before.
- Sweet dough
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/2 cup butter
- 2 packages active dry yeast
- 1/3 cup warm water
- 3 eggs
- 5 1/2 - 6 1/2 cups flour
- 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1 1/2 tbsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans
Yield: 24 rolls
To begin, you need to make the sweet dough. Place the milk, sugar, salt, and butter in a small saucepan and heat over low heat until the butter melts and the sugar dissolves. Cool to lukewarm.
Dissolve yeast in warm water in a mixer bowl.
Add lukewarm milk mixture, eggs, and 5 cups flour. Attach the dough hook to your mixer and mix for about 2 minutes on low speed.
Continuing on low speed, add the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time and mix about 2 minutes, or until the dough clings to the hook and cleans the sides of the bowl. Continue to mix on low speed for 2 minutes longer.
Place dough in a greased bowl and cover. Let dough rise for about 1 hour, or until it doubles in bulk.
Now you're ready to move on to the filling.
Place brown sugar,, sugar, butter, flour, cinnamon and pecans in a mixer bowl. Mix with a flat beater on low speed for about 1 minute.
Punch down the dough and roll it into a 10x24 inch rectangle on a lightly floured surface.
Spread sugar-cinnamon mixture evenly on dough.
Roll dough tightly from the long side to form a 24-inch roll, pinching the seams together.
Cut into 24 slices, 1-inch each.
Place rolls in an 11x15x2 baking pan and cover. Let rise for 45-60 minutes, or until doubled in bulk.
Bake at 350ºF for 20 minutes.
Remove from pans immediately and serve. Enjoy!
