How to make enriched sweet dough

  • In a liquid glass measuring cup add 1 cup of milk. Place it in the microwave to heat up until the internal temperature is around 105 degrees. Add 1 tbsp of sugar and the yeast and mix well. Allow to activate the yeast for 5 minutes. Then pour the milk yeast mixture into a stand mixing bowl using the dough hook attachment.
    Add the eggs, butter, and vanilla bean paste and mix well. Add the flour and salt and mix until it forms a smooth dough if the dough is a little wet just add additional flour. Cover and let it rise for about and hour to an hour and a half depending on how warm your room is. Then punch down the dough.

How to make cinnamon rolls

  • Roll the dough into a 1/4 inch thick rectangle.  Then take a spatula and spread the softened butter evenly all around the dough. 
    Combine the brown sugar and cinnamon in a bowl and distribute it liberally on top of the butter so it covers the whole rectangular dough except 1/2 inch from the edges. (that way when you roll it up the cinnamon roll you can seal the edges). 
    Starting at one end of the dough, roll the dough up into a "log".  Then slice the log into 1 inch slices.  Then place the slices into a greased baking dish leaving space in between the slices.  Cover with a towel and let them proof for an hour.
    Place the cinnamon rolls in a preheated 375 degree oven. Bake for about 17-19 minutes or until light golden brown; making sure to rotate the pan halfway during the baking process .
    Take the cinnamon rolls out of the oven and allow the cool for at least 10 minutes. Meanwhile in a small stand mixing bowl mix cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla, Beat with a paddle attachment until well combined. Once cooled slightly slather the icing all over the cinnamon rolls. Serve and enjoy
