CINNAMON BUNS FROM SCRATCH , EASIER THAN YOU THINK!

 
Hi there, The weather here in South Florida is "Frigid" today! I see that many of you are getting some snow. I am a Northern girl so the cold here does not snap at me but the true Floridians have a hard time with the 30-40 degree weather. If you travel around today you will see everyone bundled up like snow people. Hats, heavy coats, gloves are worn by many. They definitely have a hard time coping.

I have the perfect recipe for everyone today, Sweet Doe that will be cinnamon buns . Cinnobuns doesn't have anything on this recipe ,it's simple to whip up even if you have no experience making yeast doe.  I must warn you I took photos of the recipe in the cookbook and the book is past vintage in age It is an old Family Circle recipe that I have been using for many , many years. These delicious buns will be sure to get your family to the table , you may want to double up on the recipe  because they go really fast.
 
 

You'll want to have a fresh pot of coffee or some ice cold milk on standby for these delicious morsels.

Lightly browned to perfection glazed with sweetness this recipe will be a family favorite such as it has become in my home. Let's get started Here are the ingredients you will need for this recipe:

Yeast, flour, eggs, sugar, milk or 1/2 & 1/2, vanilla, water and of course cinnamon and butter. The recipe calls for shortening but I have always used margarine or butter. I am thinking that butter flavored shortening would be fine. So lets take a look at the steps:

After mixing all ingredients as directed you'll get a doe that you will have to flour your hands of and tumble around for a while. When you start to work the doe it will be lumpy so you will take it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead it. If you have never worked with doe don't be scared it's very easy. Just flip down turn it around until it becomes smooth and that's about 5 or so minutes. Kids love helping with this recipe. When you get the right smooth feel you can place itback into the bowl and cover it over with a towel or tablecloth. Place up high or near heat so that the rising magic takes place.

After that you will take and divide into to = pieces. Roll, sprinkle with sugar and with cinnamon, roll and cut into desired size.
It's ok to fit them snugly into the pan they pull apart easily. Just let them rise a tad bit more then they will be ready to bake.
 
One important thing to remember is to be minimal when it comes to flouring your boards or hands ,too much flour will make the doe heavy when it should be light after it is baked. When cooled slightly the glaze is super easy just about a half a stick of butter or margarine softened and about a cup and 1/2 of Confectioners sugar and about a teaspoon of vanilla, beat adding a drop or two of milk until you have the desired consistency a little thinner than regular frosting. Coat generously when cooled a bit. Have fun and I'm sure your family and friends will be thankful to you for this delicious treat. When I managed the B&B in the Glades they have a strawberry festival every year and I made this recipe to sell with cappuccino ,I couldn't make them fast enough, I was literally in the kitchen for two days! Happy baking to you and I am so happy to share this recipe with you!
