The Best Cinnamon Buns with Cream Cheese Icing
Or so my husband & kids says! I struggled for years to find the best recipe that wasnt yeasty tasting , and that had my favorite cream cheese icing! Try it & report back to me,its so easy!
1/2 c. really warm water
2 tea sugar
1 T. Quick rising yeast
(Mix & leave for 10 Min)
1/2 C. Sugar
1 T. Salt
1 C. Warm milk
1 Cup boiling water
2 Cups white flour(brown does not work well)
(Combine well in mixer with dough attachment, then pour in yeast mixture)
Gradually Add slowly 3 1/2 Cups of flour to dough mixture. Take out & put onto a very well floured surface. Knead a couple times, put into large mixing bowl that has been greased well, & let rise until its really big, at least double in size. Make sure its a warm area & set aside.
When doubled, flour area again very well, punch down and knead a couple times. Roll out into the biggest rectangle you can get*(thin but not ripped). Spread on 1/2 cup ,melted butter, and sprinkle heavily with cinnamon. Crumble on 2 1/2 cups of brown sugar evenly.
Roll up and stretch lengthwise. You should be able to cut at least 12-16 slices .
Place in greased glass baking dish (i like to use glass). I find the metal ones burn everything. You can also use 2 smaller ones.
Let rise again until buns are big & totally filling pans.
bake at 375 degrees or 25-27 minutes.
Cream cheese Icing:
1/2 block cream cheese
1/4 cup butter
1 cup icing sugar
1 tea vannilla
Beat for a couple minutes and spread on thick..... Enjoy! Dont hesitate to ask me if you have any questions, they are really easy! The hardest part is waiting for them to cool to put the icing on, so you can eat one!
