Barbara's Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

Step 1

Butter muffin tins; set aside. Mix together water, yeast and sugar in small bowl and let proof until foamy, about 10 minutes.

Step 2

Combine milk, butter and salt in small saucepan. Place over medium heat and bring to boil, stirring occasionally. Pour into large mixing bowl. Add 1/4 cup sugar and 4 cups flour 1 cup at a time, mixing thoroughly after each cup of flour is added. Add eggs and mix with dough hook on low speed 3 to 4 minutes. When dough has cooled to lukewarm, add yeast and remaining flour. Mix on medium speed 4 to 5 minutes, scraping bowl several times.

Step 3

Divide dough in half and roll into rectangular sheets 1/4 inch thick. Brush surfaces with melted butter. Combine sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle evenly over dough. Roll up each sheet tightly and lay seam side down. Slice into 1/2-inch rounds and place in muffin tins. Cover lightly and let rise in warm draft-free area until doubled in bulk.

Step 4

About 15 minutes before rolls are ready to bake, preheat oven to 400 F. Bake rolls for 10 to 12 minutes, until light golden brown.
