My Mom’s Cinnamon Rolls


  • 2 pkg. dry yeast or two tablespoons of bulk dry yeast
  • ½ cup of warm water
  • ½ cup scalded & cooled milk
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup butter
  • 4 1/2 to 5 cups flour


  • ¼ cup organic cane sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ cup butter


  1. Dissolve yeast in warm water, stir in milk (cooled first), sugar, salt, beaten eggs, butter, and 2-½ cups flour. Beat until smooth, add remaining flour to make it easy to handle. Turn dough out on to a kneading board and knead about five minutes. Place into an oiled bowl and let rise about 1-½ hours. Punch down; roll into a nice big rectangle. Melt ¼ cup of butter and sprinkle cinnamon/sugar (I always wing it here and probably add more than that) roll up and cut into cinnamon rolls. Let rise 30 minutes and bake @ 375 for 25-30 min.
