Homemade Cinnamon rolls

So I decided to make these cinnamon rolls because.. I mean who doesnt love them? In all honesty I messed up with the  filling- I mixed the butter sugar and cinnamon all together when I was supposed to coat the rolled out dough with butter and THEN sprinkle the cinnamon sugar over it. It was still tasty though so it’s all good!

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

cinnamon filling:
1/2 cup melted butter, plus more for pan
3/4 cup sugar, plus more for pan
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon

4 tablespoons butter
2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 to 6 tablespoons hot water

Preheat oven to 350 and then In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water and put to the side. 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.

Roll out on a floured surface into a 15 by 9-inch rectangle. Spread melted butter all over dough. (That’s where I messed up but still tasted good!) Then Mix sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over buttered dough. Next you role up dough and pinch edge together to seal. Cut into 12 to 15 slices (just picture how they’re in slices like out of the canned cinnamon rolls) 

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. While they’re cooking you can start making the icing..mix butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Add hot water 1 tablespoon at a time until the glaze reaches desired consistency, and then add to rolls once theyre ready!

They defiantly look homemade but they were so good! The dough ended up being perfectly flakey right out of the oven and my family loved them! Happy baking 🙂
