Cinnamon Rolls

Makes 12 rolls



  • 3-1/4 to 3-3/4 cups all- purpose flour
  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened


Step 1: Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit
Step 2: In large mixer bowl, combine 1-1/2 cups flour, yeast, 1/4 cup sugar and salt; mix well.  
Step 3: In saucepan, heat milk, water and 1/4 cup butter until warm (120-130 degrees; butter does not need to melt).
Step 4: Add liquid mixture to flour mixture, then add egg. 
Step 5: Blend at low speed until moistened; beat three minutes at medium speed.  By hand, gradually stir in enough  remaining flour to make a soft dough.  
Step 6: Knead on floured surface until smooth and elastic, 5 to 8 minutes.  Place in greased bowl, turning to grease top.  Cover and let rise until double, about one hour.
Step 7: To prepare filling:  Combine brown sugar, 2 tablespoon white sugar and cinnamon; set aside.
Step 8: Punch down dough.  On lightly floured surface, roll to a 15 X 12 inch rectangle.  Spread with softened butter.  Sprinkle filling over dough.  
Step 9: Starting with shorter side, roll up tightly.  Pinch edge to seal.  
Step 10: Cut into 12 slices.  Place in greased 13 X 9 inch cake pan (or a 9 inch round cake pan).  Cover; let rise in warm place until almost doubled, about 30 minutes.  
Step 11: Bake at 375 for 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown.  Remove from pan; cool.
