This is one of my favorite things to eat around Christmas!
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees!
Here’s what you need to make it:
- 8 oz of warm water
- 1 egg
- 3 cups of flour
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 2 tablespoons of sugar
- 1 tablespoon of yeast
- 1/2 cup of brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon of softened butter cut in fourths
- 1/2 cup of melted butter
Put the water, yeast, and sugar together and let it sit until you can smell that the yeast has been activated. (It smells like bread when the yeast is activated).
Add the flour, salt, eggs, and softened butter and mix until the dough forms.
Let the dough rise for 30 minutes.
Roll out the dough on a pastry mat and sprinkle flour on the bottom of the mat and around the rolling pin. This makes it so the dough will roll out instead of sticking.
Melt 1/2 cup of butter and spread it around the dough with your fingers so it is evenly spread across the dough. Mix the cinnamon and sugar in a separate bowl. Sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar over the dough and the butter.
Roll the dough together. Cut the rolls using dental floss.
Place in a pan and let them rise for between 30-60 minutes.
Bake for 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees.
Place your favorite cream cheese over the cinnamon rolls!
