Cinnamon Sweet Rolls


By Nicci Moore, Vashti

Basic sweet roll ingredients:

  • 6-7 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 2 packages active dry yeast
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup milk
  • ½ cup margarine or butter
  • 1 egg

In a large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, sugar, salt and yeast; mix well. In a small saucepan, heat water, milk and margarine until very warm (120-130 degrees). Add warm liquid and egg to flour mixture; blend at low speed until moistened. Beat 3 minutes at medium speed. By hand, stir in additional 3 cups flour until dough pulls cleanly away from sides of bowl. On floured surface, knead in 1-2 cups flour until dough is smooth and elastic, 8-10 minutes. Place dough in greased bowl, cover loosely with greased plastic wrap and cloth towel. Let rise in warm place (80-85 degrees) until light and double in size, 45-60 minutes. Punch dough several times to remove all air bubbles. Divide dough in half. Shape as directed in following recipe.

Starting with 20-inch side, roll up jellyroll-fashion, pinch edges firmly to seal seams. Cut into 20 one-inch slices; place cut side down in greased pan.
