(adapted and changed a tad from Pioneer Woman)
(Frosting from yours truly :)
4 cups whole milk (2% is okay)
1 cup vegetable oil
1 cup sugar
2 pkgs ( or 4 1/2 tsp) of active dry yeast
9+ cups flour
1 heaping tsp baking powder
1 scant tsp baking soda
1 heaping T of salt
1 cup butter - divided
1 cup sugar - divided
Generous amount of cinnamon
Mix the milk, vegetable oil, and sugar in a pan. "Scald" the mixture (heat until just before the boiling point.) Turn off heat and leave to cool 45 minutes to 1 hour. ( I divide into two containers and refrigerate for 1/2 hour) When the mixture is lukewarm to warm, but NOT hot sprinkle in yeast. Let it sit for a minute. Add 8 cups flour. Stir mixture together. ( I place 8 cups four in a mixing bowl, then pour mixture over it, and mix with a dough hook at low speed) Cover and let rise for at least an hour.
Then add 1 more cup of flour, the baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir mixture together. (dough hook)
Sprinkle flat surface generously with flour. Take half of the dough and form a rough rectangle. Then roll the dough thin, maintaining a general rectangular shape. Drizzle 1 cup butter over the dough. Sprinkle 3/4 cup sugar over butter and sprinkle cinnamon on top very generously. Roll the dough in a neat line toward you long ways; keep the roll relatively tight as you go. Pinch the seams to seal. Grease six to seven round, foil, cake, or pie pans. Then cut rolls 3/4 to 1 inch thick and lay about 7 each in buttered pans. Repeat with other half of dough (or you can let dough sit in fridge overnight or even a day or two, punch down as needed.)
For mini rolls divide dough in 4 rectangles instead of two.
Let rise for 20-30 minutes, bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes.
I use this dough for these, dinner rolls, and orange rolls too. (that recipe is coming up)
Now for the scrumptious amazing ooey gooey frosting!! Notice the Cinnamon
Cinnamon Almond Frosting
1/2 bag of powdered sugar (16 oz) +1 cup
2 tsp maple extract (flavoring) - for color
1/2 cup milk
1 8oz bar of cream cheese - softened
2 T melted butter
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp almond extract
1 T cinnamon
Mix all ingredients together until smooth. Thick but pourable. Drizzle generously over warm rolls. Makes a TON of icing: Way more than you might need for one whole recipe (I save it for more cinnamon rolls or dip graham crackers in it. Yum!)
Grilled Chicken and Lemon Orzo Salad by Brenda - Summertime was made for pasta salads. Easy to tote to a picnic or backyard gathering, they’re our one-bowl-meal kind of friend. I started making this Grill...
