The perfect remedy for cold-weather blues, these classic cinnamon rolls are like a cozy, warm hug in food form.  Even when it's not cold outside, everyone will enjoy these sweet, hot buns!  Plus, you do all the work the night before, so you can still sleep in and have fresh cinnamon rolls in the morning.  Sweet!

Paso 1: Ingredients


4 egg yolks*
1 whole egg*
1/4 cup (50g) granulated sugar
6 Tablespoons (85g/3oz) melted butter (for dough)
3/4 cup (175mL/6oz) milk*
4 cups (500g/20oz) all-purpose flour
1 package (8g/2 1/4 teaspoons) instant dry yeast
1 1/4 teaspoons (6g) salt
1 1/2 Tablespoons (21g/0.75oz) butter* (for filing)
1 cup packed (200g) light brown sugar
1 Tablespoon (2.5g) ground cinnamon + nutmeg mixture (baker's choice!)
Pinch of salt

1/4 cup (56g/2.5oz) cream cheese, softened
3 Tablespoons milk*
1 1/2 cups (150g/5.5oz) powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon (1mL) vanilla extract (I added in a splash of orange extract too, but go easy! A little goes a long way)

*Bring ingredients to room temperature

  • Stand mixer, hand mixer, or wooden spoon and strong forearms
  • Rolling pin or wine bottle
  • Baking dish (this size is good) 
  • Sifter or sieve for powdered sugar
  • Large bowl
<p>These look absolutely mouthwatering! Ooh yes! Yummm!</p>
<p>I woke up at 6:30 AM to finish them because I was so exited to eat one: worth it!</p>
<p>Tastes so Freaking GOOD </p>
My first instructable and it certainly didn't disappoint! I also followed a tidbit of advice from someone on allrecipes and flipped the buns over onto a cookie sheet - allowing all the melted butter and cinnamon sugar goodness to recoat the buns before icing them!<br>Will be sure to make again!
<p>Do they have to stay the refrigerator all night, or could you begin the baking/rising step as soon as you finish rolling and cutting? I'm not sure I can wait all night haha</p>
Omg. I love your work extremely. You are do talented. I love you!!!!!
<p>Very pretty and well presented. Thank you.</p><p>My wife was collecting recipes for sticky buns/cinnamon rolls for a while. This simple bread must be the all time favorite recipe to publish. She decided to clean out her recipe notebook one day (bulging cover). There were over 80 different versions varying slightly with nuts, fruit, etc.</p><p>Just this week the cover of one of her magazines had... yep, sticky buns!</p><p>Cook on Scoochmaroo!</p><p>-=Doug</p>
Looks REALLY good
<p>Yummy, I must try this ASAP!</p>
Salted butter right? :O
YUM!!.... Got my vote!!...
Excellent, Scooch! Another dandy 'ible from the master! Er... mistress!
Wow, you stole this 100% from Alton Brown. Next time at least credit the originator of the recipe if you are going to repost it. <br> <br>I actually have 4 of these left in the fridge from over the weekend when I made them, via Food Network/Alton Brown. They are very good, thanks for the recipe AB.
I love making fresh cinnamon rolls but hate getting up early so they'll be ready for breakfast. This is a great idea! I'll try it out tonight.
when i ask a question, I WANT TO BE ANSWERED! now tell me my fine haired fellow, do i have to eat them overnight?
They were briljant!!!!!! Thanks for the recipe!
Do you add the yeast right out of the packet into the egg mixture
You call for granulated sugar... Yet in the recipe it doesn't say when to put it in...hoping I didn't mess this batch up.
Thank you! It should go in the dough with the egg and butter. Fixing it now!
I will be making these
Yum! Yum! Yum! Yummmmmy!
