Delicious Cinnamon Rolls

For his birthday breakfast, Steven wanted cinnamon rolls. There wasn't room in the fridge to make our favorite recipe, so I went with another recipe that can be made in a couple of hours. It's pretty yummy as well, and satisfied Steven's request.

Delicious Cinnamon Rolls

3 cups warm tap water
2 pkgs yeast
½ cup sugar
2 tsp salt
½ cup potato flakes
8 cups flour
½ cup oil
2 eggs
filling: softened butter, brown sugar, cinnamon to taste
½ cup melted butter
¼ cup evaporated milk
1 tsp vanilla
5 cups powdered sugar


Dissolve yeast in warm water. Stir in sugar, salt, potato flakes and 3 cups flour. Add eggs and oil and beat 2-4 minutes with mixer. Knead in remaining flour. Cover and let rise 1 hour. Roll out and spread with butter. Top with brown sugar and cinnamon. Roll up and slice. Yields 18 large or 30 small rolls. Let raise 20-30 minutes. Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes. Mix remaining ingredients until creamy. Spread on rolls. (from cousin Aislynn’s preschool cookbook, tried 4/01 – dough pretty good, frosting delicious)

And in case you're interested, today I took pictures trying to show how much butter, cinnamon and sugar I use. I don't measure - just spread or shake until it looks good.
