Cinnamon Rolls


Our favorite recipes go on the blog....this means I've NOT baked these much since the blog began in 2005. However, they ARE our Christmas Tradition. 



1 C whipping cream 
1 C brown sugar

Rolls: 
3 1/2 C of flour
1 T of yeast
1/4 C sugar
1 tsp sea salt
2 T butter
1 egg
1 C hot water

Filling:
1/2 C butter
1 1/2 C sugar
2 tsp cinnamon

Mix brown sugar and cream in 9 x 13 pan. 

Blend 1/2 the flour and next six ingredients. Beat 3 minutes, stir in remaining flour. 

Knead - roll to 7 x 15. 

Spread on butter and filling.  (I just eyeball it -this seemed like WAY to much butter and sugar). 

Roll, seal edges, cut into 15 pieces. 

Place on topping. 

Cover and let rise until doubled for about 40 min. 

Bake at 375* for 20 - 25 minutes. 

Cool 10 minutes. Turn out. 

*Note:
I substituted Coconut oil for the butter, Coconut cream in place of whip cream and used rapadura for all sugar. You can also skip the egg.

I wonder if YOU made them. I have no memory of making them in years and years...but the kids are SURE it's our family tradition. It is now...in fact now that I have the sub for cream I may make them more often for them...maybe a First Saturday tradition. LOL
