Cinnamon Rolls

I got this recipe from my friend, Tennille, and I promise you...you will not find a better recipe for cinnamon rolls.

1 can evaporated milk
4 cups hot tap water
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup potato flakes
3 Tbs. yeast
2 Tb. salt
12-13 cups flour
*Mix all ingredients until it pulls away from sides. Then mix for 6 minutes. The let it rest for 10 minutes. Divide dough in half or into thirds, depending on how big of cinnamon rolls you want. Roll out dough onto floured surface. Cover with melted butter. Sprinkle with a cinnamon/sugar mixture. Then sprinkle with brown sugar. Roll up tight and cut with string or floss. Put them on pan and let rise until doubled in size. Bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes, depending on how big they are. Frost with buttercream frosting.
Buttercream frosting
2 cubes butter, softened at room temp.
2 boxes powdered sugar
dash of salt
2 tsp. vanilla
enough milk to make it spreadable

Those really were SO good! I was over them after we made them but now I wish I had one to eat. Too bad Ry ate 2 plates of them in less than 24 hours. Guess I have to be quick around here!

You are right, this is the best recipe ever and trust me, I've tried many over the years!! I like that you only have to let them rise once. These are Don's absolute FAVORITES!

Oh yum! These look fab--for some reason I've always been intimidated by the idea of making cinnamon rolls--but I think I might actually try these ones out! I seriously can't wait!!

Bake at 350 and the cinnamon/sugar mixture is just some white sugar and cinnamon mixed well together. However much you like.
