Cinnabon Cinnamon Roll Recipe

Cinnabon Cinnamon Roll Recipe

The smell of baked cinnamon wafting through your house has to be the best smell on the planet. No matter the time of year, it always brings me a comforting feeling and also, makes my stomach growl like crazy.

Have you ever walked through the mall and before you saw it you could smell those big, delicious, gooey cinnamon rolls being baked and taunting you over to the cinnamony (not a word) goodness.

I don’t know how you guys are but they’re pretty much impossible to resist whenever I go to a mall or airport (especially the airport!)

So maybe, I wasn’t the smartest in making them at my own home because a)I had to smell them all day, and b) Um, just one? Yeah, no that didn’t happen.

It was a fun recipe though, albeit harsh on the curves, absolutely worth every gooeylishess (also, not a word) bite.

Prep Time: 20 minutes (not including rise time)

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total: 40 minutes
INGREDIENTS

  • 2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
  • 1 Cup milk warm
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup margarine (softened)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour

FILLING

  • 1 cup brown sugar packed
  • 3 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup margarine (softened)

CREAM CHEESE ICING

  • 6 tbsp margarine
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup creams cheese
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp salt

Instructions
1. For the rolls, dissolve the yeast in the warm milk in a large bowl. Let it sit for about 5 minutes. If the yeast is good, it will start to froth up.
2. Add sugar, butter, salt, eggs, and flour to the bowl of a mixer and mix well.
3. Pour the milk/yeast mixture in the bowl and using the dough hook, mix well until well incorporated.
4. Place dough into an oiled bowl, cover and let rise in a warm place about 1 hour or until the dough has doubled in size.
5. Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface, until it is approx 16 inches long by 12 inches wide. It should be approx 1/4 inch thick.
6. Preheat oven to 350 F degrees. Grease a 9×13 inch baking pan.
7. To make filling, combine the butter or margarine, brown sugar and cinnamon in a bowl.
8. Spread the mixture evenly over the surface of the dough. Alternatively you can spread the butter first on the dough and then the brown  sugar and cinnamon mixture.

9. Working carefully, from the long edge, roll the dough down to the bottom edge. The roll should be about 18 inches in length. Cut the roll into 1 1/2 inch slices. You might find it easier if you use a piece of floss vs a knife.
10. Place the cut rolls in the prepared pan. Cover them with a damp towel. Let them rise again for another 30 minutes until they double in size.
11. Bake for 20 minutes or until light golden brown. Cooking time can vary greatly!
12. While the rolls are baking make the icing by mixing all ingredients and beat well with an electric mixer until fluffy.
13. When the rolls are done, spread generously with icing.
