Cinnamon Rolls…ohhhh yes!

Since “Free Recipe Friday” came and went so quickly for us here last week, we just realized we didn’t post our traditional Friday recipe!  So we are here this morning to redeem ourselves.

Church Cinnamon Rolls

(from The Homestyle Amish Kitchen Cookbook)

3/4 cup sugar

1/3 cup butter, warmed

1 can evaporated milk, warmed

3 T. active dry yeast

3 eggs

4 cups flour (plus more as needed)

1 T. salt

3/4 cup butter, softened

2-3 cups sugar


raisins and nuts, if desired

Put the 3/4 cup sugar, 1/3 cup butter, evaporated milk, and yeast in a large stand mixer and let stand for 5 minutes. Then turn on mixer and mix these ingredients together.  Add the eggs and, while mixing, slowly add the 4 cups flour and the salt.  Continue adding flour until dough leaves the sides of the bowl.  Continue kneading for 10 minutes and then place in a large, oiled bowl, cover with a towel, and let rise until doubled.

On a floured surface, roll out dough and spread with 3/4 cup butter, 2-3 cups sugar, and lots of cinnamon.  You can also spread on nuts or raisins.

Roll dough into a log and cut into 2 dozen rolls.  Place cut side up on 2 greased jelly roll pans, cover with a towel, and let rise again.

Bake in a preheated 350° degree oven for 25 minutes.


Sugar Glaze

1 ½ cups powdered sugar

2-3 T. water

Mix together until well blended and to desired consistency. Drizzle over cooled cinnamon rolls.
