moms Cinnamon rolls

Edited on Sep 22, 2008

this makes about 30 cinnamon rolls my mom spent all day making rolls by hand now with breadmachines it takes minutes to make dough


4 cups flour
2 eggs
1-1/2 cups warm water
1-1/2 ts kosher salt
1TB sugar
3 TB powder milk/or powered buttermilk
2 TB oil
½ ts cardamom ground
1 Tablespoon quick yeast
pecans (toasted)chopped
brown sugar
butter or applesauce


I put everything in bread machine on dough cycle
Take out divide dough in half roll out 12 X 20 inches rectangle
Smear dough with soften butter or applesauce (to reduce fat)
Sprinkle cinnamon, brown sugar, chopped toasted pecans and raisins.
Cut into 1-1/2 inch slices place cut side down cover with plastic wrapped sprayed with oil or cover with a moist linen cloth let rise up to 1 hour or doubled in size bake 350 for 30 minutes or till light golden brown. Let cool then frost with sour cream frosting.
This also makes a great dinner roll divide into 30 pieces and shape into your favorite roll. I roll them into snakes then tie them in a knot pinch ends together and lay them down in pan let rise and bake. Brush on this when they come out of the oven. In pan melt 2 tablespoons of butter and 2 teaspoons of sugar till sugar dissolves then brush on warm rolls.
