Cinnamon Roll Directions

4 C HOT water
3 Tb oil
3 Tb sugar

2 C flour

1 egg, beaten

3 T SAF yeast (or any instant yeast brand)
1 C flour

1 C HOT water
1 T salt

3 C + flour

Prepare cookie sheet cooking spray or parchment

In mixing bowl, start with hot water, oil and sugar, mixing to dissolve sugar

Add 2 C flour, continue mixing until smooth, about 1 min

Add beaten egg

Add in 1 C flour and yeast together, mix 15 seconds until incorporated

Add salt

Add enough flour to make dough JUST beyond gooey and still a little sticky.

Mix 6 minutes

Rest 10-15 min until dough starts to rise.

Using oiled hands, pinch a tennis ball-size piece of dough and form into a 3" ball. Push dough up through a circle formed with your index finger and thumb, stretching the outside of the dough. Twist, pinching off the dough. Place side-by-side, just touching, on cooking sheet. 4-5 across, 6 rows

Brush with egg white
Sprinkle with sesame seeds, optional.

Let rise to double in size and dough is very soft to the touch.

Personal Notes:
The most important factor is making sure rolls are completely baked on the bottom.
