Ingredients

How to make it

  • 1. Rolls: Dissolve the yeast in the milk in a large bowl.
  • 2. Add the remaining roll ingredients. Mix well. Knead til smooth.
  • 3. Place in a large greased bowl. Cover, let rise til doubled, about one hour.
  • 4. Preheat oven to 400.
  • 5. Combine the brown sugar and cinnamon for the filling.
  • 6. Roll dough out into a rectangle 21x16x 1/4 inch thick.
  • 7. Spread with the butter and sprinkle the brown sugar mixture over the butter, leaving a 1/2 inch margin.
  • 8. Spread raisins and walnuts if included
  • 9. Roll up into a cylinder, the long way. Cut into 1 3/4 inch slices. Place into a greased 9x13 pan. Let rise about 30 minutes, covered.
  • 10. Bake 10-15 minutes, until light brown on top.
  • 11. Combine the icing ingredients until fluffy. When the rolls come out of the oven, spread over the top.
  • Ok I added the raisins to the recipe. Biting into a roll and getting raisins in the bite made my eyes roll back in my head. I told Lisa (trackwidow) and Michellem about the raisins and they said that sounded good. I also want to add the walnuts next time.
  • If I can make these anyone can do it. I just had to be patient for the dough to rise, not as much as I thought it would, but once they started to cook the rolls puffed right up. Just incredible. Lisa said spread the icing as soon as they come out of the oven. The icing soaked in and layered the top. These are pure sinful. Thanks again to both Lisa and Michellem.

    I baked these today and they are to die for! I left out the raisins and nuts because I don't care for them and I ate some of the filling while spreading it on the dough-just couldn't help myself. I topped them with cream cheese frosting. One bite of the finished product and my eyes rolled back in my head too. Thank you so much for suggesting this recipe. If I could rate this a 10 I would. :)

    Cinnamon rolls are a favorite. I will give these a try. I am on a mission this year to declare one recipe the winner, instead of having 6 recipes (or admittedly more) of each recipe. I have most parred down. I do need to tackle the cinnamon roll category. (I like to add a bit of orange extract to the frosting for a nice change.)

    I love these things...but they will FOREVER remind me of going into labor with my first child...exactly 5 years ago today. I was at the mall and took ONE bite of my Cinnabon and WHAMO...my water broke! Yikes. In hindsight, it's a funny story...but at the time, I was mortified!

    Sounds great JJ! I am so glad they turned out for you and was more than happy to help you with them. Next time I make them I will be adding raisins to them. Gotta stay away from the walnuts though, my husband is allergic. Great pics! Great post! ~Lisa
