Gather Essential Ingredients

Make Cinnamon Rolls

Before you can make delicious cinnamon rolls, you’ll need to gather some essential ingredients. Start with the basics: all-purpose flour, sugar, and salt. You’ll also need butter, dry active yeast, whole milk, some eggs, and of course cinnamon.

Once you have these ingredients you can start assembling your dough for the Best Cinnamon Rolls.

Prepare the Dough

Combine the flour, sugar, salt, and yeast, and mix until a smooth dough forms. Knead it with butter and add a few tablespoons of milk to bring it together.

Leave it aside to rise for at least an hour or two in a warm, draft-free environment. When your dough is ready to go, roll it out and sprinkle it with your desired amount of cinnamon and sugar.

Roll up the dough, slice it into small pieces and bake for about 15-20 minutes. Voila! Enjoy your homemade cinnamon rolls.

Make Cinnamon Rolls Filling

There’s nothing like a freshly made cinnamon roll, especially when the inside is filled with a delicious mixture of cinnamon and sugar. Making the filling for your cinnamon rolls can be a simple process. Begin by melting 1/4 cup of butter in a medium bowl. Add 1 cup of brown sugar, 2 tablespoons of cinnamon, and a trace of nutmeg.

Stir until combined. You can also add 1/2 cup of mixed nuts or raisins. When ready, take two tablespoons of the mixture and lay it in the center of each roll before covering it with dough and baking. Enjoy your homemade cinnamon rolls with a creamy, sweet glaze!

Roll and Bake

Now it’s time to roll out the dough and spread it on the cinnamon/sugar mixture. Roll the dough up and cut it into 1 to 2-inch slices. Place on a greased baking sheet; leave some space in between the rolls. Bake the cinnamon rolls at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Add Finishing Touches

Topping the cinnamon rolls with icing imparts sweetness and creates a glossy finish. Chopped pecans sprinkled over the finished rolls add a crunchy texture and a nutty flavor. To add some heat, a pinch of cayenne pepper can be dusted over the top.

Taking the time to add these final touches will ensure the cinnamon rolls are inviting and memorable. If a cream cheese frosting is being used, chopped fresh fruit or colorful sprinkles will add an extra level of vibrancy and interest.
