Crazy Good Cinnamon Rolls/Dinner Rolls

Sharee Robbins Recipe

By Sharee Robbins shareekristin


This is a dinner roll recipe but can be made into a wonderful, perfect cinnamon roll. Had these for Christmas and I couldn't get enough!


1 pkg
active dry yeast
1 c
hot water
3 Tbsp
6 Tbsp
1 tsp
3 c
cinnamon (for cinnamon roll)
sugar (for cinnamon roll)
butter (for cinnamon roll)
brown sugar (for cinnamon roll)

Directions Step-By-Step

Add flour first and bury your yeast in the flour. Then add sugar and salt. Don't mix together!
Add oil and lastly add the hot water. Mix together. Dough will be sticky so use oil to work through your hands better. Do NOT add extra flour.
Cover with towel and allow to rise until doubled in size. Punch it down and allow to rise a second time until doubled in size.
IF YOU ARE MAKING DINNER ROLLS, break off into balls and place in a well greased pan and bake @400 for 20 minutes.
IF YOU ARE MAKING CINNAMON ROLLS, roll out on flour surface. Mix together cinnamon and brown sugar in a bowl. Spread butter over dough, then sprinkle with cinnamon/brown sugar mix.
Roll and cut into buns and bake on well greased sheet @350 for about a half an hour.

Good morning. I made these buns yesterday and they are so super easy. The only change I did was that after I put them in a pan which was and 8x8 one, I let them rise for an hour again. Then I baked them for 30 minutes and there were perfect. So easy and good, love them!!! Hubby liked them too!!! Thanks for the great recipe!!!

Roll it out to the right feel for you--how thick do you want your cinnamon roll layers? If you want lots of gooey stuff in the roll, roll the dough thinner; thicker if you don't want as much. Usually cinnamon rolls are cut to about a 1" thickness . . . thicker if you want higher rolls.

Cathy, you could probably make any kind of frosting you wanted to make--buttercream, cream cheese, it's up to you.

Go a little easy on this girl; might not be the clearest recipe in the world, but if you've cooked before, it's doable.

Sharee, you might want to edit your recipe and add more detail?
