My kids are a big fan of cinnamon rolls, and I haven’t been able to eat one that’s not homemade since I was given this recipe. It is for the bread machine, so if you don’t have one, see this post on why it’s a must in your kitchen.

Cinnamon Rolls

3/4 c water
1 egg, slightly beaten
2 tsp vanilla
3 c flour
6 Tbs sugar
1/4 c butter (softened)
1 tsp salt
2 Tbs dry milk
1 1/2 tsp yeast

Filling:
1/4 c butter (melted)
1/3 c brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

Optional - 1/2 c raisins

Topping:
1 c powdered sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla
3-4 Tbs milk

Add first ingredients to bread machine, using dough setting. Roll out onto large pan in a rectangle, spreading the filling over. Roll up from short side, then cut in 1 inch rolls (by now you should have what looks like a cinnamon roll).

Place on greased pan (I like to use my stone pizza pan) and let rise for 45 mins. Bake at 375 for 15 minutes. Drizzle topping over hot cinnamon rolls and let cool.

My kids LOVE this recipe and you can do a lot of different things with it. Right now I’m experimenting with butter braids using this recipe as a base and looking for fun fillings to go with it. ;-)
