Cinnamon Rolls

These are so so soft and moist. Be prepared for a big batch! It makes about 5-6 dozen as written, so feel free to half the recipe. We provided both a caramel icing and a cream cheese icing option for you to choose from!

Ingredients
  

  • 1.5 cups warm water
  • 1.5 cups warm milk
  • 1.5 cups white sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2/3 cups oil
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 10 cups bread flour
  • 2 tbsp + 1 tsp yeast

Caramel Icing

  • 1.5 sticks butter
  • 1.5 cups brown sugar
  • 1/4-1/2 cup half and half
  • 2.5-3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Cream Cheese Icing

  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2-2.5 cups powdered sugar

Instructions
 

Cinnamon Rolls

  • Dissolve yeast in warm water, then add milk, salt, sugar and oil. Mix, then add eggs.
  • Gradually add in the flour until combined. You may need extra flour.
  • Let it rise for 2 hours.
  • Roll out and then add melted butter, brown sugar, and lots of cinnamon.
  • Cut and let rise until doubled. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes. Makes 5-6 dozen.

Caramel Icing

  • Either on the stove or in the microwave, melt the butter and heat up the half and half. This liquid should be warm but not boiling. Remove from heat.
  • Add brown sugar and vanilla and stir until dissolved.
  • Gradually mix in the powdered sugar until a nice consistency is reached. This should be lump free and fairly thick. If you want to thin it out, just add a little half and half.

Cream Cheese Icing

  • In a stand mixer, cream together cream cheese, butter, salt, and vanilla. Then add the powdered sugar in gradually and keep mixing. If you want a thinner icing, you can add a splash of milk.
