Quick Cinnamon Rolls

I found this recipe at the following site.
It is a delicious recipe, but feel free to read the reviews and tips found at the site.  Anything that I have added to this recipe will be typed in red.


*     3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup margarine, softened (I used 1/4 cup of salted butter.)
  • 3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (You'll need more for dusting the counter and kneading.)
  • 1 (.25 ounce) package instant yeast
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup margarine, softened  (I used 1/3 cup of salted butter.)
  • 1/2 cup raisins (I left these out completely because raisins remind me of ticks you find on dogs in the summertime.  YUCK!)

  • Directions:
    • Heat the milk in a small saucepan until it bubbles, then remove from heat. Mix in margarine; stir until melted. Let cool until lukewarm.  

    • In a large mixing bowl, combine 2 1/4 cup flour, yeast, sugar and salt; mix well. Add water, egg and the milk mixture; beat well. Add the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring well after each addition. When the dough has just pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth, about 5 minutes. 
    • Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let rest for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, cinnamon, softened margarine.               

    • Roll out dough into a 12x9 inch rectangle. Spread dough with margarine/sugar mixture. Sprinkle with raisins if desired. Roll up dough and pinch seam to seal. Cut into 12 equal size rolls and place cut side up in 12 lightly greased muffin cups. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

    • Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until browned. *Put a cookie sheet or foil under this muffin tin because the butter/sugar mixture tends to run over the sides of the pan. Remove from muffin cups to cool. Drizzle with icing. Serve warm.


    1 cup powdered sifted powdered sugar
    2 TBS milk - more if you want it thinner
    1/2 tsp vanilla flavoring
    1/2 tsp butter flavoring

    Drizzle over the top of warm cinnamon rolls.
