Cinnamon Rolls

  1. In a large bowl combine 2 cups of flour with water sugar salt and yeast
  2. Beat the mixture for 2 min with a wooden spoon (I use a stand mixer), then add the eggs and lard.
  3. Stir until well blended.
  4. Gradually add the remaining 4 ½ cups flour to mixture and stir until firm dough is formed.
  5. Cover bowl and set in a warm area to rest for 20 min (I cover with a wet dish towel)
  6. After resting, punch dough down, divide it in half and form into two balls.
  7. On floured surface, roll one ball out as thinly as possible.  (I go for a rectangle shape)
  8. Brush half of the softened margarine evenly over the dough.
  9. Sprinkle with half the brown sugar and half of the cinnamon.
  10. Roll the dough up like a jelly roll. And cut into slices about ½ in thick (I get about 12 slices. Easiest is to cut roll in half and set the two halves next to each other and cut each into thirds)
  11. Place slices about ½ inch apart in a buttered jelly-roll pan (casserole dish works for this also)
  12. Repeat  the same steps 1-6 with the second ball of dough.
  13. Place the rolls in a warm area and allow to rise for about 45 min or until double in size. (I cover again)
  14. Preheat oven to 350 F 
  15. After the rise, bake for 15-20 min until golden brown.
  16. Allow to cool for 15 min.

  1. Add sugar to bowl and stir in heavy cream and vanilla until mixture resembles a thick batter.
  2. Add milk one tablespoon at a time, stirring until smooth – about 3-5 full minutes. Mixture may look lumpy at first but just continue to stir and it will come together.
  3. Pour over hot cinnamon rolls. 
  4. Devour. 
  5. Buy new (bigger) pants.
