Holiday Cinnamon Rolls

November 23, 2013
Would you like a mouth watering cinnamon roll to serve to your 

family, friends and well yourself?  Of course you would!

These are so tasty, they never made it any farther than this-straight 

to a plate to the tummy!  I did manage to get a simple frosting 

 on them and then they were gone.

Using the basic dough recipe from my earlier post-

Pull Apart Dinner Rolls.  Refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.

~Holiday Cinnamon Rolls~ oven 350
Makes 14 rolls for 1/2 of recipe 28 for full recipe


Large shallow greased baking pan
1/2 Pull Apart Dinner Roll Recipe
8 tablespoons melted butter
1 3/4 cups brown sugar
2 tablespoons cinnamon
1 cup raisins (optional)

Punch dough down and roll out into oblong piece about 1/4 inch thick.  Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon.  Roll up as for jelly roll and cut in 1 1/4 inch slices.  Place cut side up, about an inch apart in large shallow greased baking pan. Cover and let rise in warm place free from draft, until light and rolls touching. About 1 hour.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes.  Ice tops while still warm with simple icing.  

~Simple Icing~


4 teaspoons warm milk
1 cup sifted powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon softened butter

In a small bowl slowly add warm milk to softened butter and sifted powdered sugar and beat with a wire whisk.  Add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and beat until well blended.  Pour over warm rolls and serve.

Such a perfect aroma permeates the entire household as these

sweet, tender and cinnamon infused rolls begin to bake.  Combine

the baking with coffee brewing and I assure you this tantalizing 

combination will wake up sleepy teenagers and out of town guests.
