Cinnamon Rolls

I have several recipes for cinnamon rolls, but I always return to this one. It's a little more time consuming, but well worth it!

Cinnamon Rolls

Pan on Stove:

1 tsp. salt

¼ cup sugar

¼ cup shortening

1¼ cup milk

Stir all above ingredients on med-high or until shortening is melted and add to ingredients in large bowl.

Large Bowl:

1½ cups flour

1 Tbs. yeast

On side:

1 egg

2 cups flour

Once shortening mixture is added to bowl of flour, add egg and beat for 3 minutes at high speed. By hand stir in 2 cups flour to make soft sticky dough. Grease hands and knead dough. Shape into a ball and place lightly greased bowl. Spray top with Pam and cover. Put bowl into oven and let rise until doubled (usually 1½ hours). Punch down and roll out. Spread melted butter onto dough. Combine cinnamon and sugar and sprinkle on top of dough. Roll length-wise and use dental floss to cut. Place on lightly greased pan and cover with saran wrap. Let rise another 30-45 minutes and bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes or until golden on top. Frost when slightly cooled.

Cinnamon Filling:

2½ Tbs. melted butter

½ cup brown sugar

2 tsp. cinnamon

I usually make a little more filling, but that's because I LOVE the filling.
