I have just recently found this forum and so far I love it. I hope you
will welcome me in.
Since there is so much knowledge shared within these "walls", I'm hoping
I will get lucky and find a really great cinnamon roll recipe.
Cinnamon rolls are a lot of work, and most of the time I feel I've
wasted my time, because they're so ordinary.
Anyone have a really good recipe they wouldn't mind sharing?
Hi there, well I dont really have a great cinnamon roll recipe but if
you like cinnamon buns you got to try out Granny Creed's! I had them
not long ago and they are the best cinnamon rolls I have ever had! I
think you can check them out by just google searching for granny creeds
cinnamon rolls. I am not sure if this helps but hopefully it will save
you some work and hassle of making them.
Here's a recipe for you and Natalie. I am not usually a Paula Deen
fan, but she knows her oooey gooeys and this recipe rocks!
Recipe courtesy Paula Deen
12 to 15 servings
Cook Time: 30 min
* 1/4-ounce package yeast
* 1/2 cup warm water
* 1/2 cup scalded milk
* 1/4 cup sugar
* 1/3 cup butter or shortening
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 1 egg
* 3 1/2 to 4 cups all-purpose flour
* 1/2 cup melted butter, plus more for pan
* 3/4 cup sugar, plus more for pan
* 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
* 3/4 cup raisins, walnuts, or pecans, optional
Glaze (you might want to cut this back because it makes a *lot*):
* 4 tablespoons butter
* 2 cups powdered sugar
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 3 to 6 tablespoons hot water
Heat oven to 350° F.
In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water and set aside. In a
large bowl mix milk, sugar, melted butter, salt and egg. Add 2 cups
of flour and mix until smooth. Add yeast mixture. Mix in remaining
flour until dough is easy to handle. Knead dough on lightly floured
surface for 5 to 10 minutes. Place in well-greased bowl, cover and
let rise until doubled in size, usually 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
When doubled in size, punch down dough. Roll out on a floured surface
into a 15 by 9-inch rectangle. Spread melted butter all over dough.
Mix sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over buttered dough. Sprinkle
with walnuts, pecans, or raisins if desired. Beginning at the 15-inch
side, role up dough and pinch edge together to seal. Cut into 12 to
Coat the bottom of baking pan with butter and sprinkle with sugar.
Place cinnamon roll slices close together in the pan and let rise
until dough is doubled, about 45 minutes. Bake for about 30 minutes
or until nicely browned.
Meanwhile, mix butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Add hot water 1
tablespoon at a time until the glaze reaches desired consistency.
Spread over slightly cooled rolls.
How do you eat these? Warm and with more butter, of course!
