Why I Love This Recipe
My husband grew up eating cinnamon rolls with his family every Thanksgiving. What a great idea! I decided to add my own flair and make them many more times throughout the year. Every morning is a perfect morning for a warm, sticky cinnamon roll!
Ingredients You'll Need
1 Cup warm milk (about 30 seconds in the microwave)
1 Tablespoon active dry yeast
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 Teaspoon salt
3 Tablespoons butter (softened to room temperature)
1 Large egg
3 Cups all-purpose flour
6 Tablespoons to ½ cup melted butter
1 Cup brown sugar
2 Tablespoons cinnamon
4 ounces cream cheese (softened)
1 to 1 and ½ cups powdered sugar
½ Teaspoon of vanilla
1 to 2 Tablespoons of milk
Combine and mix all Dough ingredients with dough hook until tacky (not sticky) to the touch.
Set dough on floured counter-top. Turn bowl over on top of dough and let rise one hour.
