The Book: Iowa Homecoming 86
From: I believe Brian's Aunt Diane gave it to us for a wedding Shower.
This is another cookbook that has not been used very much. There is a sugar cookie recipe that everyone loves in our home that I have been making since we were first married.
I am on a quest for a really good cinnamon roll recipe. I love cinnamon rolls! I would like to find a recipe where the dough is really light and flakey, and they rise pretty high. I also would like a nice brown sugar/cinnamon filling. It's not that much to ask for is it? I have made the Farm Chicks cinnamon rolls, they were o.k. I didn't care for the frosting.
Unfortunately this recipe was just alright for me as well. I mean they were good, but not GREAT. Here is the recipe if you would like to try it.
Overnight Refrigerator Cinnamon Rolls
2 pkgs. yeast
2 1/3 c. milk
1/3 c. sugar
1/3 c. oil or shortening
3 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. salt
5-6 c. flour
Put 3 cups of the flour, along with yeast, sugar and baking powder, in a large mixer bowl. Stir to mix. Heat milk to 120-125. Pour milk over flour mixture and beat with mixer for 5 or more minutes. Add the shortening salt and egg; beat really well again. Add remaining flour, gradually enought to make a soft dough.
Roll out dough, right away, to about 1/2 inch thickness. Spread with oleo, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Roll up as for jelly roll. Slice 1/2-inch thick. Put slices in pan; cover with foil and seal well. Put in refrigerator 12-24 hours. Bake in morning in 400 oven. Frost, if desired.

Have a great week friends!
