On one of my last days in Maine my friends mom made these absolutely delightful cinnamon rolls and I fell in love with them! With the Holiday Seasons coming up these would be a great addition to any table.
Cinnamon Rolls Serves: 18
2TB Butter – Softened
1/2C Sugar + 2tsp Cinnamon
First we are going to scald the milk in a sauce pot and put to the side to cool down to luke warm. While the milk is heating up place the yeast in a 1/4C of warm water with a tsp of sugar and let it activate for 5-10 minutes. Then mix the yeast with the 1/4C sugar, salt, egg, shortening and flour. You may need to add more flour until you can easily knead the dough without it sticking to your hands. Knead and place in a bowl, cover with a towel and let dough double in size. Knead dough again and let it rise to double in size one more time.
Roll the dough out to approximately 9”x18” and spread the softened butter on the dough, then sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar mix on that. Roll the dough making an 18” log and cut into 1” thick rounds. Place on a greased cookie sheet, cover with a towel and let double in size. Then bake at 375° for 25-30 min.
