  • Rolls
  • 3 Cups Unbleached Flour
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 4 Teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Cup Sugar
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 2/3 Cup Whole Milk
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 Cup Unsalted Butter (Melted)
  • 2 Teaspoons Unsalted Butter For Greasing Baking Pan
  • Filling
  • 1 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Unsalted Butter (Melted)
  • 2 Teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 Cup Chopped Walnuts (Optional)
  • Icing
  • 2 Cups Powdered Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Whole Milk
  • 1 Tablespoon Unsalted Butter (Melted)
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Line 11x17 inch baking pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  3. In large-size bowl sift flour, kosher salt, baking powder, and sugar. Make a well in center of flour mixture.
  4. In small-size bowl beat eggs. Pour beaten eggs into center of flour mixture along with milk, vanilla, and melted butter. Mix just to combine. Turn out onto floured surface and knead 1 minute. If dough feels too sticky sprinkle a bit more flour onto it as you work. Turn dough over a couple times as you knead. Gently roll dough out into rectangular shape, which should be about 1/4 inch thick.
  5. In medium-size bowl combine brown sugar, melted butter, cinnamon, and walnuts. Spread brown sugar mixture (filling) onto dough and leave about 1/2 inch edge.
  6. From long side roll dough up into jellyroll. Using sharp knife cut dough as evenly as possible into 12 pieces.
  7. Brush melted butter onto parchment paper that is lining baking pan. Place rolls onto pan and space evenly as they get larger as they bake.
  8. Place in oven for 25 minutes until golden brown. Remember that each oven heats differently so check at 20 minutes.
  9. Remove from oven and let cool 5 minutes.
  10. Prepare icing by mixing ingredients together in small-size bowl. Drizzle icing over cinnamon rolls and serve.
  11. Makes 12 Cinnamon Rolls.
