Favorite Comfort Food – Homemade Cinnamon Rolls

As of right this minute, I am craving a homemade cinnamon roll.  Sounds like the ultimate comfort food, but if you ask me in a couple hours, it might be thick crust, cheesy pizza.  I don’t have gourmet taste I know, I can appreciate it, but give me something involving good bread and I’m happy!

Cinnamon Roll Dough:
1¼ cups warm water
2½ tsp (1 pkt) dry yeast
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tbl oil
3½ – 4 cups flour
1½ tsp salt

In mixer bowl, sprinkle yeast over warm water.  Add sugar, oil, and 1 cup flour.  Mix until well combined.  Add remaining flour and salt.  Knead.  Let rise until doubled.

Cinnamon Filling:
1/4 butter, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 Tbl cinnamon

Mix filling ingredients together in small bowl.

Roll out dough to 18″x8″ rectangle.  Spread butter then cinnamon filling over dough.  Roll from long end to long end, pinch seam.  Cut into 12 1½-inch rounds (I use thread, place under dough, cross ends over and pull quickly through dough), put in sprayed 13″x9″ pan.  Cover and let rise until doubled.  Bake in preheated 375° oven for 15-20 minutes.  Frost with cinnamon roll glaze.

Cinnamon Roll Glaze:
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar

Mix powdered sugar into butter, add enough milk to make desired glaze consistency.  Spread over warm cinnamon rolls.
