Cinnamon Rolls

Sorry the picture is so small that’s what you get when you take it with your phone. Ok I love Cinnamon Rolls. I mean I really love Cinnamon Rolls. This is a collaborative recipe that I’ve put together. The dough part comes from a bread maker recipe and the glaze comes from the famous Paula Deen.

Makes 24 rolls


1 Egg Room Temp

1 1/2 cups of warm water

1/3 cup of oil ( I use olive)

1/2 cup sugar

1 1/2 teaspoon salt

4 1/2 cups of flour

1 yeast packet


1/2 cup or 1 stick Butter

1/2 cup Sugar

Cinnamon as much or as little you like. I use a lot and don’t measure so the darker the better for me cause I love cinnamon.


4 tablespoons of butter

2 cups of powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 to 6 tablespoons of hot water


Dissolve yeast in water and sugar. Let stand for 5 minutes or until bubbles start to form then mix in remaining ingredients into stand mixer with dough hook attachment. Mix until incorporated. You can let it beat around for a little bit until bowl is clean. Let dough rise for an hour or until double the size.

Roll Dough out onto a lightly floured surface in a 12×24 rectangle. Spread with butter. Then sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. Roll up tightly, jelly roll style, and cut into one inch slices.

Place on butter baking sheet sprinkled with more sugar or glass pan and let stand in warm place for one hour or until double its size.

Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until done.

Mix glaze ingredients until smooth and drizzle over top.

Note: My dough on this last batch was kind of sticky so it made it difficult to cut but once risen you couldn’t tell and they still tasted wonderful. Nice light and fluffy sweet cinnamon deliciousness.
