Miss Carroll’s Cinnamon Rolls
Demonstrated during the 2022 Guess and Company Christmas Warehouse Sale
Recently, I made a double batch of these cinnamon rolls for my bible class and they gobbled them up so quickly. I think we had a record attendance due to the cinnamon rolls at the coffee table. 💗
One of my grandsons, Hudson, loves these cinnamon rolls and I make him a batch every few months. I wrap them individually and his mom puts them in the freezer so he can have a cinnamon roll on busy school mornings.
Christmas wouldn’t be the same without these cinnamon rolls and other special occasions.
I make the cinnamon rolls up to the last rising and put them in the refrigerator. Then, the next morning I set them out for about 30 minutes to rise. Then, bake as usual. They are truly delicious!
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Rising Time: 1 hour and 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 2 hours (They are worth it!)
Servings: 24 large rolls
- Jelly Roll Pan, 10.5 inches x 15.5 inches
- Mixing bowl
Cinnamon Roll Dough Ingredients
- 1 quart whole milk (do not substitute)
- 1 cup canola oil
- 1 cup pure cane sugar
- 2 packages active dry yeast (or 4 ½ teaspoons)
- 9 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 heaping teaspoon of baking powder
- 1 scant teaspoon of baking soda
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 1 ½ cups melted butter
- ¼ cup ground cinnamon
- 2 cups pure cane sugar
- 1 cup chopped pecans, if desired
Maple Glaze Ingredients
- 2 pounds powdered sugar
- ½ cup whole milk
- 6 tablespoons butter, melted
- ¼ cup strongly brewed coffee
- Dash of salt
- 1 tablespoon maple extract
Cinnamon Roll Directions
- In a large stew pot over medium heat, add the quart of whole milk, 1 cup of canola oil, and 1 cup of pure cane sugar. Stir often until the milk mixture is lukewarm. Remove the pot from heat and sprinkle the yeast over the milk mixture. Let sit for 1 minute.
- Add to the milk mixture, 8 cups of all-purpose flour. Combine with a Dutch whisk. Cover and let rise for 1 hour.
- Add the remaining 1 cup of flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir with a Dutch whisk until all combined.
- Remove half of the dough and place on a lightly floured surface. Roll out the dough with a French or Marble rolling pin to about a 24-30 inch by 10-inch rectangle.
- With a pastry brush, baste the dough with about 1 cup of melted butter. Sprinkle with a generous amount of sugar (about 1 cup) and cinnamon (about ⅛ cup).
- Beginning with the end of the dough farthest from you, roll the rectangle toward you creating a long roll.
- With a Bench Scrapper, cut the dough into 1 ½ inch slices and place on a buttered pan. Place them about 1 inch apart from each other. Baste the top of each roll with more melted butter. Let rise for about 20 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
- Bake rolls for about 15-20 minutes, until golden brown.
- While the cinnamon rolls are baking, mix up the glaze ingredients. Whisk together the ingredients in a large bowl until smooth.
- When the rolls are done and come out of the oven, drizzle the glaze over the warm cinnamon rolls.
- These cinnamon rolls are the very best I have ever made and I hope you and your family enjoy them as much as we do.
ENJOY! Blessings and bee happy! 💗
