Heavenly Cinnamon Rolls

Holy cow... BEST cinnamon rolls ever.
Like, these are insane.

Mix In Bowl By Hand:
*3.5 c warm water
*1 c vegetable oil
*3/4 c sugar
*6 TBS yeast
Let stand for 15 minutes

Then add:
*3 eggs
*1 TBS salt
*10 cups flour
Beat until smooth and elastic

-Roll out 1/2 of the dough unto a thin rectangle
-Spread softened butter over surface
-Spread brown sugar on top!
-Sprinkle cinnamon on top

-Sprinkle a little flour on top and roll up.
-Slice 1 1/4 inch pieces
-Repeat with remaining dough
(Tip: I like to slice them with a long piece of thread. Hold each end of thread, slide under the rolls, bring up & cross! Make sense?)

Spray some glass dishes and stuff them in there.

Bake @ 375 degrees for about 15 minutes.

Now, the frosting! I've experimented with all different types of frosting, and I've found this one tastes the best with these cinnamon rolls.

* 1 stick butter
*4 TBS. milk
*1 tsp. vanilla
* 1.5 pounds (6 cups) powdered sugar

-Melt butter, milk, and vanilla. Stir in powdered sugar!
Frost rolls while warm!!

Just drip it all in there. mmmmmmmmm.
And as you can see, it makes a ton-- your friends will LOVE you!

(Side note: I realized that this picture does not feature the frosting recipe I included. This one has a yummy cream cheese frosting, which is good- but almost too sweet. There really is such a thing. Unfortunately.
Anyways, don't be alarmed if your frosting doesn't look like mine!)



  1. Yum..from scratch. I have never made them from scratch. Cinnamon rolls are my sons favorite...maybe I will try...this looks good! (Oh I already said that...but it does!)

  2. Those look super tasty. I am in need of a good cinnamon roll recipe.

  3. GOOD LORD - those look sinful!! Maybe for the morning after Thanksgiving?

    Thanks for helping to make my SITS day last week so special, sitsta!!

  4. Hi Emily,

    I am your newest follower! I found you over at Holly's blog (504 Main) and knew you were the one for me as soon as I got a glimpse of those heavenly looking cinnamon rolls! Are you Betty Crocker or what?!?!

    Anyway, I just wanted to pop over and say hello. If you have a chance, come check out my giveaway (it's my first one and who knows how it will go, but I'm trying):

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  5. I have something for you at my place!


  6. Hi! stopping by from sits, these look so good! :)

  7. Delicious looking! I think I just gained 10 lbs from drooling over them.

    Merry SITSmas!!
