Foodie Friday: Itty Bitty Cinnamon Rolls

Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm. Tasty little bites of heaven.

1 cup warm milk
2 1/2 tsp yeast
1/3 cup melted butter or margarine
2 eggs
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
4 1/2 cups flour

1 cup brown sugar
lots of cinnamon- when you think you've added enough, add some more
butter or margarine to coat

  1. Dissolve yeast in warm milk and let sit a couple of mins
  2. Add melted butter (make sure it isn't hot), and add eggs
  3. Add salt and sugar
  4. Stir in flour to form dough
  5. Let rise about one hour
  6. Split dough in half and roll each half out into a rectangle of about 13 inches by 4 inches.
  7. Spread butter onto your rectangles of dough and sprinkle with sugar mixture. Remember you can never have too much cinnamon or sugar, so when you think you've sprinkled enough on, sprinkle on some more.
  8. Roll up and cut each "roll" into 12 buns
  9. Put them into a 24 piece mini cupcake pan and let rise about another hour
  10. bake at 400 degrees 12-15 mins. Watch em close and pull them out when they are golden.
Makes 24 mini buns. (I totally agree that these outgrew our mini muffin tin and could be made on an even smaller scale.)

Cream Cheese Icing
1/2 brick of cream cheese
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 1/2 cup icing sugar
tsp of vanilla

Mix together and ice your cooled rolls.
