Monday Morning Cinnamon Rolls
Looking to kick off the work week with style with the Monday morning cinnamon rolls. There was great rejoicing when the children figured out what we were making. I had to make a loaf of bread so of course I was going to use the Grandmother Bread.
Sometimes like Sunday evenings I go ahead and make the enough for two loaves. The difference is that once the bread has risen the first time then 1/2 gets put in a loaf pan. The other 1/2 gets turned into cinnamon rolls.
- 1 teaspoon yeast
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1½ cups warm water
- 3½ cups flour approximately
- ¼ cup sugar
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons Butter
- Combine first fur ingredients in a Large Bowel
- Let sit five minutes
- Mix in flour with a wooden spoon until dough becomes too stiff to continue stirring easily.
- Add a little more flour and begin kneading.
- Let dough rise in a greased, covered bowl until doubled. (Usually, 30-60 minutes.) Uncover bowl; sprinkle in a little more flour and knead again
- Roll out dough on a floured surface into an approximately 9 x 12-inch rectangle. Brush on a couple of tablespoons of melted butter.
- Combine ¼ cup sugar, ¼ cup brown sugar, and ¼ teaspoon cinnamon. Spread over buttered dough.
- Roll up, seal seams, and cut into 8 pieces.
- Place on cooking stone a few inches apart.
- Flatten rolls.
- Let rise overnight in refrigerator
- Brush rolls with more melted butter.
- Sprinkle with more cinnamon and sugar.
- Bake at 400-degrees for 8-10 minutes.
- Serve sprinkled with powdered sugar.
As you can tell these rolls are packed full of goodness! They sound like a lot of work but they are really not. While my loaf is rising I melt the butter and mix the cinnamon sugars.
Monday morning cinnamon rolls are guaranteed to start the work week off right with minimal effort. They are so easy to make that almost anyone can make them.
