General Conference Cinnamon rolls

Every General Conference my mom makes cinnamon rolls. I finally started honoring the family tradition and doing it myself this past October conference.

I won't be making them today because I still have to go down to Tuacahn and teach, but I'll do it tomorrow morning and I can hardly wait! (Even if I can't eat any, I love the smell....)

Here is the recipe (from my chicken scratch after getting it from my mom over the phone...hope you can follow it okay if you want to make these):

Bowl 1:

2 Cups butter, melted
3/4 Cup sugar
3 tsp salt
1 Cup hot water
*************
mix together

Bowl 2:

3 Tbsp yeast
1 Cup lukewarm water
*************
Sprinkle yeast over water and let sit until it bubbles up over the side.

Bowl 1:

Add 2/3 Cups of yeast in Bowl 2 to the mixture.

Bowl 3:

Beat 5 eggs
Add 1 Cup cold water

Bowl 1:

Add 2 Cups flour
Add egg mixture from Bowl 3
***************
Add more flour 1/2 Cup at a time until you have sticky dough

Bowl 4:

Lightly grease bowl and add dough.
Cover and let rise until it doubles.
Punch down and rise again until double.

Flour counter and divide dough in half and roll out.

Pour melted butter over the rolled out dough, then add cinnamon and sugar mixture to your liking.

Roll up, and use thread or unflavored dental floss to cut into rolls.

Line up on cookie sheet and let rise.

Bake at 350 for 15 minutes, frost with cream cheese frosting.

  6. I was thinking about making cinnamon rolls for tomorrow, but then I realized hubby would be sleeping for the first session at least, (recovering from night shift) and that would leave me alone with them. Maybe I'll make something more like breakfast casserole or something that I don't really like.

  12. Oh yum! I love my Mom's, but there is just so many steps...The pillsbury from the can are pretty good. They have cinnabon frosting.

    I could never make them & not eat them though.

  18. I had to ignore this post. Too much good stuff and as you know, I've regressed in the weight department. Bleh. And Chris's tradition of Buttermilk Bars and Donuts at General Conference don't help either!

  19. I made Cinnamon rolls for General Conference, too! We had our ward choir over to our house to rehearse after the last session, since next week is Easter, and we REALLY needed the rehearsal. I also didn't eat any, but they sure smelled good!

  20. Oh my goodness, I got too overwhelmed with all those bowls!!! This has confirmed to me that my desire to eat cinnamon rolls far outweighs my ability to make them. Oh well. :) You've impressed me.
