Pinterest 1 hour Cinnamon Rolls

1 Hour Cinnamon Rolls

So, of course, on Pinterest I stumbled upon a recipe for 1 hour cinnamon rolls. My family loves them. I do have a 50 year old family recipe for them, however, they are more a labor of love. I need some a little quicker for those mornings that I just need to get some sort of breakfast on the table. So off to the kitchen with the I pad I went. I did in fact make them in an hour, they turned out perfect. Pinterest Success! I was a little nervous at first with all the comments of people not having them turn out, however, I followed her directions to the T and produced perfection. I’ve since made them more so I am sharing. The only changes that I personally made was halving the recipe. I do not want  need 2+ dozen cinnamon rolls hanging around my kitchen taunting me. The recipe below is for 12-16 rolls. So enjoy these yummy beasts!

Ingredients
  1. 1 3/4 cup Warm Water
  2. 1/3 cup Sugar
  3. 1/4 cup Oil
  4. 3 tablespoons Yeast
  5. 1 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  6. 1 egg plus 1 yolk
  7. 5 1/4 cup Flour
  8. 1/4 cup Butter, melted
  9. 1/2 cup Sugar
  10. 2 1/2 teaspoons Cinnamon
  11. For the frosting;
  12. 1/4 cup Butter, softened
  13. 3 cups Powdered Sugar
  14. 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  15. 3-6 tablespoons Milk
Instructions
  1. In the bowl of an electric mixer with the dough hook attachment add the warm water, sugar, oil and yeast. Mix it just for a few seconds, then let stand for 15 minutes. Then add salt, egg, egg yolk and flour. Mix for 10 minutes, then let stand for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, mix the 1/2 cup of sugar with the cinnamon in a small bowl. Oil your countertop (do not use flour). Remove dough and spread out into a rectangle. Pour on melted butter and spread it out evenly (I use my hands). Then sprinkle to entire rectangle with the cinnamon sugar, make sure to get the edges. Roll up tight (not super tight) Using a string of dental floss ( I find this method easier and makes a much more uniform roll) cut the roll in half. Then cut the halves in half. Then cut three rolls from each half. Place rolls on a baking sheet prepared with parchment paper.Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Let rise for 10-15 minutes. Do not let them rise too much, they will get bigger in the oven. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Remove and let cool a little.
  2. For the frosting;
  3. In the bowl of an electric mixer cream the butter and powdered sugar together for 2-3 minutes. Add vanilla. Now add the milk 1 tablespoon at a time until you've reached the desired consistency.
Notes
  1. I have never had to bake these for longer than 12 minutes. I let them rise while my oven is preheating.
