! have a little secret to make anyone do anything I ask: HOMEMADE CINNABONS! These little dandies are delectable. Seriously, random strangers will beg at your feet asking for this recipe. It is A……MAZ…..ING! They are also quite filling and a single batch of these feed my crew for breakfast with even some leftovers (sometimes). And that is saying a lot! Try these out and your husband may put you on a golden chaise and carry you around the house feeding you grapes and fanning you with fern leaves!
Mix all the dough ingredients together and knead for about 10 minutes or until dough is nice and elastic/smooth. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes (if you are using dry active yeast – the non commercial kind – you will have to let it rise for about an hour here) Meanwhile mix together the brown sugar and cinnamon for the filling. After the dough has rested, turn it out on to a lightly floured surface and roll into a 16x20 inch rectangle. Spread on softened butter or soft spread and sprinkle with filling. Roll up so that you have a 16 inch spiral dough log. Cut 12 rolls about 1 – 1 1/2 inches wide and place into a greased 9x13 pan. Cover and let rise about 45 minutes to 1 hour in a warm place. After they have risen, pop these puppies into a 400 degree oven for about 15-20 minutes. Immediately after they come out of the oven spread the icing over the hot rolls and serve! They are TO DIE FOR!!! Honestly - all my single ladies: if you have a boyfriend, get ready for a marriage proposal!
Another tip – you can make up this recipe ahead of time and after cutting and placing rolls in pan cover them with plastic wrap and place in fridge. The next morning put them in a warm spot for about 30 minutes to finish rising. Bake the same as above. This saves you some time and makes it possible to have a quick breakfast with little clean up!
