Homemade Cinnamon Rolls

Today I’m making 4 pans of Cinnamon rolls ( 1 to eat now and 3 to freeze). These are not considered healthy but compare the ingredients in these to store bought and these are better for you!

Here is my recipe:

2 tbs Yeast
1 3/4 c. Warm Water (105-115 degrees)
1/2 c Sugar
1 Egg
1/4 c. oil ( I use extra light Olive oil, don’t use the regular or it will give your rolls a funny taste, trust me!)
5-5  1/2 c. Flour

* Dissolve Yeast in Warm Water. Add all ingredients. Dough will clean sides of bowl when ready. (Knead until nice and smooth) Let raise until doubled.

Take 1/2 the dough, roll out in lg. rectangle. Spread w/ melted butter then sprinkle with a cinnamon/sugar mixture. Roll up and cut about 1-1 1/2 inch thick. You can cut smaller but we like a larger roll. Let raise 15-20 in a warm place. Bake at 350 for 15-20 min. or until golden brown.


1 stick butter (softened)
1 tsp. vanilla
milk (use amount to desired consistency)
Powdered Sugar 2-3 cups

These are aprox amounts.

With this recipe I usually can get 2 9×13 pans. These freeze really well. If you decide to freeze these, bake them first then wrap them really well before you put up in the freezer.
