I was trolling the pages of Pinterest a few days ago and I kept seeing the same picture of this cinnamon roll claiming to be better than Cinnabon.
Do you know how many cinnamon rolls claim to be better than Cinnabon? There are several out there as I'm sure you know.
I decided to pin it anyway. The next day a random person commented on the pin and tells me that these cinnamon rolls are really good.
Ok, so I'm intrigued now. I haven't had a cinnamon roll in forever and it's been longer than that since I've attempted to make them. And I stress "attempted", they didn't turn out all that great. Well, if I'm going to be honest, they were close to horrible.
I headed over to Bobbi's Kozy Kitchen and checked out the recipe. I've got everything I need and get started.
Here's my verdict:
People, these are the best cinnamon rolls I have ever put in my mouth!!!
I'm not exaggerating...at all.
They are slap yo' momma good!
Shout it from the roof tops outstanding!
Okay, okay I'll stop...cause I really could keep going on and on about them.
Bobbi's daughter actually made these and I can't wait to see what she does next. Head over and check out Bobbi's Kozy Kitchen she's got some great recipes over there.
Let's Get Started:
The Best Cinnamon Roll Ever
recipe slightly adapted from Bobbi's Kozy Kitchen
1 cup very warm milk (between 100-110 degrees F)
2 eggs- room temperature
1/3 cup butter-melted
4 ½ cups bread flour
1 teaspoon salt
½ cup white sugar
1 packages active dry yeast (Bobbi used 2)
1 cup brown sugar-packed
2 ½ tablespoons ground cinnamon
1/3 cup butter-softened
3 ounces of cream cheese-softened
¼ cup butter-softened
1 ½ cups powdered sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
Dissolve the yeast in the warm milk in a large bowl.
Mix in the sugar, butter, salt, and eggs.
Add the flour in quarters and mix well. I used my dough hook for kitchen-aid.
If it starts to get too hard to mix, dust your hands with some flour and finish mixing it by hand. (I had to do this)
Knead the dough into a large ball and put it into an oiled bowl.
Cover it with a damp dish cloth and let it rise in a warm place for about an hour, or until doubled in size.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Roll dough into a large rectangle (Make sure not to roll it too thin, or it will rip when you roll it up) onto a floured surface.
Spread the softened butter onto the surface of the rolled dough.
Sprinkle the brown sugar and cinnamon mixture evenly over it.
Roll the dough up and cut into rolls.
After discarding the end pieces I got 12 rolls (Bobbi's daughter got 8).
Place rolls in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking pan or large cookie sheet.
Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about thirty minutes.
Bake rolls in preheated oven until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
While rolls are baking, beat together the ingredients for the frosting.
Spread or drizzle it on warm rolls before serving.

Slap yo' momma good....take my word for it!
