Tasty Cinnamon Rolls!

Saginaw Club and its members

This cinnamon roll recipe comes from the Saginaw Club. Let's get into the ingredients!

Just the sight of this photo alone will make your mouth water!

(Recipe was cut into quarter) Here's what you will need:

1/4 of a quart of milk or 1 cup of milk

1/4 cup butter 

1/4 cup sugar

1 egg

1/4 tsp salt

4 cups flour

3 1/2 tsp of yeast

1/2 cup warm water

Put milk and butter into pot over medium heat until butter melts. Let cool. Mix yeast and water and set aside. Mix sugar and egg, then add to milk mixture. Sift flour and salt together in a large bowl. Add milk mixture to flour and then pour in yeast. Work together turn into a floured surface and knead. Cover and let rise in a warm place. Roll into a rectangle, cover with melted butter, brown sugar and cinnamon. Roll up and slice. Bake at 425° degrees for 15-20 minutes. Frost with powdered sugar icing (powdered sugar and milk).

These cinnamon rolls will completely melt in your mouth. The rolls were gooey and yummy when served slightly warm. I attempted to cut them uniform, but as you can see by the picture that didn't happen. Even with the altered recipe, this batch made about four dozen. I did not have a large sheet pan, so instead I used disposable pans with non-stick parchment paper that worked really well.
