I am new to the from scratch baking game and I found this recipe some time ago. I've only made it a couple times, but both times they came out perfect! If a fumbling beginner like me can make these - and trust, me, I am a major fumbler - anyone can!

How to Make Easiest Cinnamon Rolls EVER!

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat milk to approx 115 degrees.
    dissolve the yeast in the warm milk in a large bowl.
  2. Add sugar,butter, salt, eggs, and flour, mix well. BE SURE TO USE VERY SOFT BUTTER!
  3. Turn oven to warm.

    Knead the dough into a large ball, using your hands dusted lightly with flour. Be sure to knead until ball is firm and elastic.
  4. Turn off and place the bowl in warm oven. Let rise approx 1 hour or until doubled in size.
  5. Remove dough from oven, and reheat oven on warm setting.

    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.
  6. Mix brown sugar and cinnamon. Spread butter over rolled dough, leaving 1/4 of long edge clean. Sprinkle brown sugar mixture over rolled dough. Roll lightly with rolling pin to press brown sugar mixture into the butter.
  7. Roll long side, being sure to roll tightly. Pinch edge to roll to prevent it from falling apart.
  8. Cut the dough into 1 3/4 inch slices, and place in a lightly greased baking pan. ( I like to grease with butter, and then sprinkle a tiny bit of brown sugar in the bottom.)
  9. Turn off oven once again and return pans for a second rise. Allow to rise approx 1 hour. Remove from oven while preheating to 400. Bake for 10 - 15 minutes, until golden brown.
  10. While rolls are baking, prepare frosting by mixing all ingredients together in a bowl with an electric mixer.
  11. Remove rolls from oven and frost while still warm.
