There is nothing better than the smell of cinnamon rolls. Just the smell brings back memories from my childhood. I make these for my kids just as my mother made them for me and boy do my kids love when I do. I am all for making memories, but I am a busy Mom who finds it hard to want to get the flour out and make a mess. I use this recipe and make how many I need and freeze the extra. This recipe can easily be doubled, which is what I usually do.
Go make these for your family. Enjoy the smell of cinnamon baking, and the sweet rich flavor, but most of all enjoy making memories.
Preheat oven to 375.
2 cups of Plain flour
3 teaspoons of baking powder
1 teaspoon of salt
1 cup of milk
6 tablespoons of butter softened (or sliced thinly)
Sift flour, baking powder, and salt together. (Or just use 2 cups of self-rising flour instead of these three ingredients.) Use your hand or fork to crumble the butter into the flour mixture, until it is pea sized. Add a cup of milk and slowly form dough into a ball. Do not over mix the dough. Place the ball of dough on a lightly floured surface and roll it out flat, like pizza dough, about a fourth of an inch thick.
3 tablespoons of butter softened or melted
1/3 cup of brown sugar
1 to 1 ½ teaspoons of cinnamon
Mix butter, sugar, and cinnamon. Then pour the mixture on the dough and spread evenly. Lift one corner of the dough and roll into a log. Use a knife to cut the slices half and inch thick. Place two inches apart on cookie sheet. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, until they are lightly browned.
Flash freeze some for later.
Place raw slices on a plate or pan do not let them touch. Place in freezer. After an hour remove the frozen slices and place in a freezer bag. Now they are ready for a quick snack later.
Preheat oven to 375. Remove frozen cinnamon rolls and place them two inches apart on a cookie sheet. Bake for 16 to 19 minutes, until they are lightly browned.
