Conference Cinnamon Rolls

This is a new little tradition my Mom use to do when I was little and want to do with my kids. So I am going to make cinnamon rolls for Conference every conference. ( I will post a picture when they are done :)

1 tbsp. Yeast
1/2 cp. warm water
1 tbsp. Sugar

Put these in small mixing bowl and set aside in warm place ( just until it starts bubbling.)

1/2 cp. softened butter
1/2 cp. sugar
1 cp. lukewarm milk

(Butter should all be melted by the milk)

mix w/ electric mixer and let set a couple of minutes.

Then add 3 eggs, beaten

mix (with electric mixer) them both together (not the yeast yet)

Add 1/2 of the flour (2 1/2 cups) and beat with the eggs, sugar, milk, and butter until smooth and then add the yeast mix and rest of the flour ( 2 1/2 cups.) and mix with a SPOON. It will be a soft dough, cover and let rise until double in size. When ready to roll out use a pastry sheet and lots of flour to roll the dough out into a large rectangle. Top dough with 1/2 a cube of melted butter, cinnamon and sugar mixture. Then roll it up long ways and cut with a long piece of dental floss, 1" to 1 1/2". Spray your cookie sheet, and put the rolls onto the pan. Let the dough rise again until double in size, cover with dish towel. When ready Bake @ 375 for approximately 10-12 minutes until lightly brown ( pretty brown). Make sure when they come out they are not doughy at all. Because once you put the frosting on it would be too doughy.


4 oz. softened cream cheese
4 tbsp. softened butter
1 tsp. vanilla
2 2/3 cp. Powdered sugar
2 tbsp. milk ( add more if needed)
