Ingredients:

For the dough:

  • Flour – 2 ¾ cup
  • Sugar – 2 tbsp
  • Baking Powder – 1 ¼ tsp
  • Baking Soda – ½ tsp
  • Salt – pinch
  • Milk – 1 ½ cups
  • Unsalted Butter – 6 tbsp (Melted)
 For the filling:
  • Unsalted Butter – 2 tbsp (Melted)
  • Sugar – 2 tbsp
  • Cinnamon – 1 tbsp
For the glaze:
  • Confectioners Sugar – 2 cups
  • Milk – 1 tbsp
Method: 

For the dough and filling:

  • Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt, in the bowl
  • Add the milk and melted butter and mix until a dough starts to form
  • Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and begin kneading the dough with your hands until a dough ball forms.  If the dough starts to become too sticky, add more flour a little bit at a time
  • Now roll out the dough into a large rectangle that is about ¼-inch thick.
  • Combine the sugar, cinnamon and melted butter for the filling in a small bowl and then spread it on the dough; being sure to cover the complete surface
  • Starting with the shorter end of the rectangle, slowly roll the dough up into a long, tight log.
  • Flour the edges of a sharp knife, and carefully cut the log into 1 to 1½-inch thick rolls.  To cut the rolls, rock your knife back and forth, being careful not to press too much into the dough.
  • Place the rolls on the prepared baking sheet, and bake the rolls until the dough starts to turn a light golden brown, about 10-15 minutes.
  • Remove the rolls from the oven, and allow them to cool

For the glaze:

  • Whisk together confectioners sugar and in a medium bowl until the glaze is lump-free and is thick, liquid consistency.
  • If the glaze is too thick, add more milk a little bit at a time, and if it too thin, add more confectioners sugar.
To serve, drizzle the glaze over each cinnamon roll.  If you are not serving the rolls immediately, wait to glaze the rolls right before eating.
Enjoy 🙂
