Mom's Homemade Cinnamon Rolls

Here is a delicious recipe for homemade cinnamon rolls that my mom made for us growing up. They take a bit of time and preparation, but they are definitely worth it!


Mom's Homemade Cinnamon Rolls
  • 1 cup scalded milk (right up to boiling)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 cup lukewarm water
  • 2 pkgs. yeast
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 7 cups all purpose flour
Filling
  • 4 Tbsp. margarine, melted
  • 4 Tbsp. sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. cinnamon
Buttercream Icing
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/3 cup margarine, melted
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
Pour scalded milk over sugar, salt, and shortening in mixer bowl. In separate bowl, dissolve yeast in lukewarm water and then add beaten eggs. When milk mixture has cooled to lukewarm temperature, add yeast and egg mixture. Beat well. Add half of the flour and beat until smooth. Add remaining flour and knead until the dough springs back to touch. Place dough in greased bowl, cover and let rise in warm place (like warm oven turned off) until dough doubles in size (about 1-1 1/2 hours). 

Roll dough out and spread with melted margarine and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar filling. Roll up long-ways and separate into rolls by sliding a long piece of thread under the roll about 1inch in, and then bring the two ends of thread across the top of the roll and pull together to cut dough more easily.

Place rolls on greased baking sheet, cover and allow to rise in warm place for 1 hour. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Allow to cool before icing.

To make icing, beat ingredients together until smooth and creamy adding more or less powdered sugar to reach desired consistency. Makes about 24 rolls.
