Cinnamon Roll Class

A few weeks ago I was asked to teach some girls from the neighborhood a cooking class.  I thought they would enjoy learning how to make cinnamon rolls.  They did really well and we had a fun time.  Not to mention that we ate a bunch of cinnamon rolls too.

First I taught them about proofing the yeast.

When the dough was made, they wanted to touch it.  Just to see what it was like.

Then I showed them how to roll out the dough.
Next comes the melted butter.
Then sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture and the brown sugar.

I then showed them how to roll them up.  I aslo showed them how I like to cut the rolls, with thread.  Wrap the thread around the roll.  Then cross the thread and pull.  It makes a clean cut every time.

The girls each made a pan to take home. 

We had a great time.
Thanks Dee-Dee for asking me and thanks


Madi and Sydney. 
It was a fun afternoon.  Now go make some for yourself!

Cinnamon Rolls
1 cup milk
1/4 cup butter
1 T. or 1 package yeast
1/4 cup warm water, 105 to 115 degrees
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
3 1/2 to 4 cups flour
1 tsp. salt

melted butter
cinnamon sugar mixture
brown sugar
white frosting

Scald milk, add butter to melt and set aside to cool. Soften yeast in warm water, can add part of the sugar to speed to growth of the yeast. Let stand for 5 minutes. In a large bowl or mixer with dough attachment add yeast, milk and butter, egg, remaining sugar, salt and 3 cups of flour. Mix well. Work in more flour as needed. Knead until smooth. Put in greased bowl and cover. Let rise until double in bulk (about 1 hour). Punch down. Put on lightly floured surface. Roll out to rectangle. Brush with melted butter, sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar mixture and brown sugar. Starting with long end, roll up. Cut into 1 inch sections and place on greased pan. Cover and let rise for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or until they start to brown. Let cool for 5 minutes and then frost.

White Frosting
1/4 cup softened butter
1/2 tsp. vanilla
3 cups powdered sugar
3-4 T. milk
Mix butter, vanilla, powdered sugar and half of the milk together. Slowly add remaining milk depending on the desired consistency.
