Cinnamon Rolls!

Who does not like a homemade cinnamon bun?!!? I love making these and freezing them before they rise a second time, pulling them out the freeze, thawing them and then allowing the to continue with their rising process. One of my favorite Holiday dishes, by far, is my homemade cinnamon buns! Early Christmas morning, enjoying the kids waking up to the amazing smell of delicious homemade cinnamon buns, it is quite amazing! This recipe is to die for. This cinnamon bun is moist, easy to cut, and topped with deliciously creamy icing. It leaves you wanting more! Growing up, I remember my parents would buy the Pillsbury brand ones and as much as I loved those growing up I totally prefer to make my own, and watch the process of liquid to dough to rising and eating them (that is the best part)! Watching Kristopher and Kailee enjoy a fluffy, homemade cinnamon roll puts the 'icing' on top (regarding to all the hard work I put into these recipes).

You Will Need:

1 Cup Organic Raw Milk, warmed to 115 degrees
2 Organic Pasture Raised Eggs, room temp
1/3 Cup Organic Butter, melted
5 Cups Organic All-Purpose Flour
1 tsp Salt
1/2 Cup Organic Coconut Sugar
2 1/4 tsp Yeast (Bob's Red Mill)
1 Cup Organic Brown Sugar
4 tbsp Organic Cinnamon
1/4 Cup Organic Butter, room temp
Organic Cream Cheese Frosting

First (not pictured, weird!), you want to place your warm milk into a separate bowl with 2 tbsp of sugar, and allow to bloom for 5 minutes or until nice and bubbly. Then add melted butter, vanilla and eggs, whisk well. Mix flour, salt, together and set aside

Mix all the dry ingredients into the wet

Whisk until you cannot use it anymore and go to your hands (if you're using your stand mixer just use your dough hook)

I love working with my hands when making dough; continue working until the dough is no longer sticky

Such an amazing dough, roll out 1/2 inch thick; a nice square shape is what you're aiming for

Rub butter all over the dough (softened butter)

Spread your cinnamon, sugar mixture and press into the dough

Roll that bad boy!!

Using a sharp knife, cut the dough into 1 inch disks, or however big you wish, place them on your baking dish that is dusted with cinnamon, sugar mixture

Cover and allow to rise for 1 hour or until double in sized

Bake 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes
