"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

Linda DeJong Koehn


1 cup warm milk (110 degrees F)
2 eggs, room temperature
1/3 cup butter, melted
4 1/2 cups bread flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup white sugar
2 1/2 tsp dry yeast
1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 1/2 tbsp ground cinnamon
1/3 cup butter, softened

1 (3 oz) pkg cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp salt

1. Pour warm milk inside the mixer bowl then add dry yeast and 4 teaspoons of sugar. Whisk, cover it with a kitchen towel and let it rest for about 10 minutes.
2. After 10 minutes, the mixture should be bubbly and puffed up. With the hook attachment on, start your mixer on low speed. Add melted margarine, eggs and remaining sugar. Start adding the flour and salt, 1 cup at a time until dough does not stick to bottom or sides of bowl. Work on dough on the slow speed for about 10 minutes.
3. Cover the dough with a plastic wrap right on the top of the dough (this will prevent the dough from getting dry and forming a crust or cover in greased bowl.) Let it rise in a warm place for about 1 hour or until it doubles size
4. Sprinkle a little flour over a clean surface and pour the dough over it. Stretch the dough using a rolling pin. Shape the dough into a 16◊21 inches rectangle. Spread dough with 1/3 cup butter and sprinkle evenly with sugar/cinnamon mixture. Sprinkle a little flour over the cinnamon mixture and roll over with rolling pin.
5. Roll up the dough VERY TIGHTLY, the long way. Cut the dough into 12 pieces,
6. Lightly grease a 9◊13 inches pan and place the cinnamon rolls on it, cover it and let it rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes or until doubles size.
7. Preheat your oven to 400F. Bake the cinnamon rolls for about 15 minutes until golden brown.
8.While rolls are in the oven, make the frosting. In mixer bowl add soften cream cheese and butter and with the whipping attachment start whipping it until itís combines. Add Vanilla extract and start adding the powdered sugar. Add a little bit of water, just enough so it can mix it. Once rolls come out of the oven, spread the frosting while rolls are still warm.
