What else to do on a lazy saturday morning? What goes great with Coffee or Hot Chocolate? Why Cinnamon Buns do.
I love the sweet buttery, cinnamon smell thes buns give off when the bake. It fills the whole house with that wonderful fragrence.
Here is my reciepe for for Cinnamon Buns.
For the Dough:
3-3/4 cups of AP flour
4 tsp. of yeast
1/2 cup of sugar
1 tsp of salt
1/4 cup of softened room temp butter
1 cup very warm milk
1 3/4 cups sugar
2 tbls cinnamon
1 tbls apple pie spice
1 pinch of nutmeg
1 1/2 cups of 10x (powdered sugar)
1 tsp vanilla or almond extract
Milk, enough to thinn out to a nice glaze you can drizzle over the top
Add 1/2 of the flour and all the other dry ingredients together. Add the milk and butter. Mix on medium for about 2 minutes. Add the rest of the flour to form a nice dough. Knead about 5 minutes till smooth and supple. Rise for 1 hour and 30 minutes.
Punch down dough and roll out to about 10 x 15 on a lightly floured surface. Rub enough softend butter over all of the top of the dough. Mix all the filling ingrediantsthen spread out all of the filling over the top of the dough. Begin rolling up starting on the 15 inch side. Roll tightly. Trim end to make even.
Cut into even rounds, using a serrated knife. Place into buttered 9×13 pan. Or you can cut into larger rounds for giant rolls, in that case use your choice of pan for desired results. Let rise again for 30 minutes. Here are the rolls after the second rise.
Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes. I like to go a little less since I like a more doughy style roll. Remove from oven and let set about 5 minutes before removing from pans. Remove to cool on a cooling rack.
