Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

Who doesn't love the smell of cinnamon rolls filling your house! The first time i made these from scratch was in high school cooking class lol. These came out so good and the cream cheese icing is such a great topping as opposed to the regular sugar icing .

For the dough:
1/4-ounce package yeast
1/2 cup warm water
1/2 cup scalded milk
1/4 cup white sugar
1/3 cup butter
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg
4 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup of melted butter

3/4 to 1 cup of sugar

2tbsp of cinnamon

For the frosting:

1 stick of butter

8 oz package of cream cheese

3 cups of confection sugar

2 tbsp of vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

In a small bowl dissolve yeast in warm water and set aside.
In a large bowl stir milk, sugar, melted butter, salt and egg.
Add 2 cups of flour and mix well and then add yeast mix
stir in remaining flour until its not sticky anymore
Knead dough on floured surface for 5 to 10 minutes
put the dough in a greased bowl and cover and wait for it to rise about 2 hours

When dough rises punch down dough and roll out onto floured surface
roll into a 15 by 9-inch rectangle. Spread melted butter all over dough in another bowl mix sugar and cinnamon
together and coat over entire surface . Start at the longer end and roll up dough pinch together the sides
slice into 16 pieces
spray the bottom of the pan with non stick cooking spray
place cinnamon rolls together in a pan ,let rise until it has doubled in size
bake for 30 min until light golden brown
