Cinnamon Sweet Rolls
1 Cup Milk
2 tsp Dry Yeast
¼ Cup Sugar
¼ Cup Shortening
1 ½ tsp Salt
3 ¼ - 3 ½ Cups Flour
4 Tbl Sugar
4 Tbl Butter - Softened
2 tsp Cinnamon
1 Cup Confectionary Sugar
2-3 Tbl Milk
Heat Milk in microwave (30-60 seconds). The Milk should feel like bath water.
Place warmed milk in medium bowl. Sprinkle yeast over top and stir.
Add sugar, shortening, and salt to milk mixture. Beat until combined.
Add Egg to bowl. Mix until combined.
Add flour, ½ Cup at a time until 3 cups have been added.
A dough should have formed and can be worked on a floured surface.
Slowly add remaining ¼ to ½ cup of flour while kneading the dough for 5 minutes.
Once dough is formed, place in a greased bowl, allow to sit two hours or overnight (in refrigerator) if possible.
Once dough has risen, punch dough down to release hair.
On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a rectangle.
Make filling by adding sugar, softened butter, and cinnamon together. Spread filling on rolled dough.
Roll up dough like a jellyroll. Roll it tight to keep together.
Once rolled, using thread, cut 8-12 pieces, about one inch thick.
Place rolls onto a prepared baking sheet. Bake in oven at 375 Degrees for 15 minutes.
Once baked, let rest 5 minutes.
Make glaze by adding confectionary sugar and milk in a small bowl. Drizzle on top of the finished cinnamon rolls.
Yield: 8-12 Rolls
