Cinnamon Rolls Recipe From Scratch


Best Cinnamon Rolls image

When I married him, I discovered that my husband's family has the best cinnamon roll recipe! I asked his mom how to make homemade cinnamon rolls, and I've been making them ever since. Serve them with scrambled eggs, and you have a filling breakfast. As a variation, you can replace the filling with a mixture of raisins and pecans. -Shenai Fisher, Topeka, Kansas

From Scratch Cinnamon Yeast Rolls image

These rolls are from a Fleischmann's Yeast brochure printed in the 1960's. I used this recipe when I was a kid in 4-H and, after trying dozens of other recipes over the years, these have remained my all time favorite cinnamon rolls. Recipe is from scratch and takes a long time to make, but I think they are worth the effort.

  2. Prepare the yeast dough. Once the dough has risen once, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Flatten the dough with the palms of your hands and gently stretch and/or roll it into a rectangle.
  3. Use a rolling pin (try this $16 best-seller) to roll the dough out into a larger rectangle, approximately 12 inches wide by 20 inches long.
  4. Spread the softened butter over the surface of the dough, leaving a 1-inch strip along the long edge of the rectangle furthest away from you completely dry.
  5. Generously sprinkle cinnamon-sugar over the butter, spreading the mixture evenly. Other spices, such as nutmeg and cardamom, also work well. Leave the 1-inch border free of sugar.
  6. Add any other fillings you're using — raisins, nuts, shredded coconut, orange zest — taking care to distribute them evenly.
  7. Start at the left-hand corner of the edge closest to you. Working from left to right, tug the lip of the dough up and over the filling, keeping it tight.
  8. When you reach the far edge of the dough, moisten the bare edge with egg wash or water and pinch to seal the seam.
  9. Use a serrated knife, pastry cutter, or length of unwaxed dental floss (our favorite method) to cut the dough into even-sized pieces. You might want to discard the very ends of the roll since they often contain little filling.
  10. When the rolls have doubled in size, bake them in a preheated 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) oven. Cinnamon rolls are generally baked at a lower temperature than other breads — if the rolls are close together, the tops will begin to brown before the edges and centers are done.
