MINI CINNAMON ROLLS RECIPE

INGREDIENTS
CINNAMON ROLL
  1. 2 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  2. 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  3. 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  4. 1 egg
  5. 1 tbsp instant yeast
  6. 1/2 cup water
  7. 1/4 cup whole milk
  8. 1 tsp salt

FILLING
  1. 1/4 cup butter melted
  2. 2/3 cup brown sugar
  3. 1 tbsp ground cinnamon and 1 tsp
  4. 1 tsp vanilla extract

CREAM CHEESE FROSTING
  1. 4 oz cream cheese room temperature
  2. 1/4 cup unsalted butter room temperature
  3. 1 cup powdered sugar
  4. 1-2 tbsp whole milk (to desired thickness)
  5. 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

INSTRUCTIONS
  • In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the flour, yeast and salt.
  • In a small microwave safe bowl (or glass measuring cup), combine the sugar, butter, water and milk. Heat in the microwave until the mixture is hot and the butter is almost melted (it took about 1 minute on HIGH in my microwave). Let the mixture come down to 120 degrees. Gradually add the milk mixture into the flour mixture. Add the egg and mix until a soft and sticky dough forms.
  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.
  • If using a stand mixer, switch to the dough hook and set on the lowest mixing setting for 4 minutes or until the dough becomes elastic or knead by hand on a lightly floured surface for 3-4 minutes. Cover the dough with plastic wrap and allow it to rest on the counter for 10 minutes.
