Hope you're having a good weekend!

Despite the scorching heat, I've decided today would be a good day to bake cinnamon rolls. I found the best recipe a few years back, and have had great success using it, so why not share it here?
Here's the link to the original author:
www.tastesoflizzyt.com...

Ingredients
For the Dough:
1 cup warm milk (about 115 degrees F)**
2 1/2 teaspoons instant dry yeast (I like Red Star Platinum Baking Yeast)
2 large eggs at room temperature
1/3 cup butter melted
4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup granulated sugar

For the Filling:
1/2 cup butter almost melted
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons cinnamon
1/2 cup heavy cream (for pouring over the risen rolls)

For the Frosting:
6 ounces cream cheese (softened)
1/3 cup butter (softened)
2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 tablespoon maple extract (or vanilla)
US Customary - Metric

Instructions
1 Pour the warm milk in the bowl of a stand mixer and sprinkle the yeast overtop.
2 Add the eggs, butter, salt and sugar.
3 Add the flour and mix using the beater blade just until the ingredients are barely combined. Allow the mixture to rest for 5 minutes so the flour has time to soak up the liquids.
4 Scrape the dough off the beater blade and remove it. Attach the dough hook. Beat the dough on medium speed for 5-7 minutes or until the dough is elastic and smooth. **The dough will be tacky and will still be sticking to the sides of the bowl. That's ok! Don't be tempted to add more flour at this point.
5 Spray a large bowl with cooking spray.
6 Use a rubber spatula to remove the dough from the mixer bowl and place it in the greased large bowl.
7 Cover the bowl with a towel or wax paper.
8 Set the bowl in a warm place and allow the dough to rise until double. I like to turn on the oven to the lowest setting for 1-2 minutes. Then turn off the oven and place the dough to rise in there. It normally takes about 30 minutes for the dough to rise. Do not allow the dough to rise too much or your cinnamon rolls will be airy.
9 While the dough is rising, prepare the cinnamon filling. In a medium bowl, combine the soft butter, brown sugar and cinnamon, mixing until well combined. Set aside.
10 Sprinkle a pastry mat generously with flour. Turn out the dough onto the pastry mat and sprinkle the top of the dough with additional flour.
11 Flour a rolling pin and roll the dough to about a 12x15" rectangle.
12 Use a rubber spatula to smooth the cinnamon filling over the whole dough rectangle.
13 Starting on the long end, roll the dough up tightly jelly roll style.
14 Cut into 12 slices and place in a greased 9x13 baking pan.*
15 Cover the pan and allow the rolls to rise for 20 minutes or until nearly double.
16 Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
17 Warm the heavy cream until the chill is off. Don't make it hot...you just don't want it cold. It should be warm to the touch.
18 Once the rolls have risen, pour the heavy cream over the top of the rolls, allowing it to soak down in and around the rolls.
19 Bake at 375 degrees for 17-19 minutes, until the rolls are lightly golden brown and the center rolls are cooked through.
20 While the rolls are cooling, prepare the cream cheese frosting.
21 In a large bowl, combine the softened cream cheese and butter using a hand mixer. Blend well.
22 Add in your favorite extract and the powdered sugar. Beat until combined.
23 Spread the frosting over the cooled rolls.
24 Store in an airtight container.


Here are a couple of pics of the process so far:




These are just out of the oven


I'm about to add the frosting, and dig in!

Does this look like a recipe you might try? It's a little time consuming but easy to do.

Amazing!
OMG! They rose like sugar coated little angels!!!
As appreciative as I am for a delicious Cinnamon Roll recipe, the God's honest truth is nothing...an I mean nothing
not souffle, not Cin -Bunns, not merengue not so much as a fluffy Ambrosia can I get to do anything with other than
puddle in a sad lump of goop that causes even the hungriest raccoon to flip me off for offering it.

Getting things to rise is a talent an a gift.
That you have in spades!

I am dying for some now!

There is nothing more heavenly than waking up with the aroma of fresh-baked cinnamon rolls.

I hate you.

But I'm coming over.

There's a person a follow on twitter, and she, stuck atw home because of Covid, cooks a LOT.

She has a step by step cinnamon roll thread, with pics, too. Here

Me, I'm having a Gyro and a Greek salad from a local joint.

Add the sound/smell of some coffee brewing and I would have to agree!

The cinnamon is definitely the healthiest part of this recipe!

I'd try some Granny's Chicken... sounds scrumptious.

Those look like their for elves. I learned to make them from my mom, restaurant style on a large baking sheet. Plenty of butter and brown sugar and cinnamon. For a twist she'd make a orange juice or coffee frosting. I makem the same way today.
