Cinnamon rolls

It’s pouring with winter rain outside. Cold, wet and I’m thinking something cozy, comfort food. Since I’ve been craving for cinnamon rolls for months now, so I decided to make some today…for the first time.


1 package( 1/4 ounce) dry yeast
1 cup warm milk
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup margerine
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
4 cups flour

1 cup brown sugar
2 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup margerine/softener

ICING (I skipped this but brushed lightly beaten egg with some light on top for glazing)
8 tablespoon margerine
1/2 cup powered sugar
1/4 cup cream cheese
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon salt

1. For rolls, dissolve yeast in warm milk in large bowl.

2. Add sugar, margerine, salt, egg, flour, mix well.

3. Knead dough into large ball using your hands dusted lightly with flour.

4. Put in a bowl, cover and let rise in a warm place about 1 hour or until the dough has doubled in size.

5.Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface, until it is approx 21 inches long by 16 inches wide. It should be approx 1/4 thick.

7. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

8. To make filling, combine the brown sugar and cinnamon in a bowl.

9. Spread the softened margarine over the surface of the dough, then sprinkle the brown sugar and cinnamon evenly over the surface.

10. Working carefully, from the long edge, roll the dough down to the bottom edge

11. Cut the dough into 1 3/4 inch slices, and place in a lightly greased baking pan.

12. Bake for 10 minutes or until light golden brown.

13. While the rolls are baking combine the icing ingredients.

14. Beat well with an electric mixer until fluffy.

15. When the rolls are done, spread generously with icing.

This recipe was taken from with a little bit modification. I only use 1 egg and 3 1/2 cups of flour. I also add almond mill as filling, as I thought cinnamon sugar should have a bit of nutty taste with it. it’s in the oven as I’m typing this so, finger crossed!

Perfect winter tea time!
