Cinnamon Rolls

(by Lucy Iscaro)

(adapted from Red Star Yeast)

For the dough:

1 c. lukewarm milk

2 large eggs, at room temperature

1/3 c. unsalted butter, softened

4 1/2 c. King Arthur unbleached all-purpose flour

1 3/4 t. salt

1/2 c. granulated sugar

1 package (1/4 oz.) Red Star platinum yeast

For the filling:

1/3 c. unsalted butter, softened

1 c. brown sugar, packed

3 T. ground cinnamon

Mix together and knead all of the dough ingredients—by hand, mixer, or bread machine—to make a smooth, soft dough.

Place dough in a lightly oiled bowl, turning to grease all sides.

Cover bowl, and let dough rise until nearly doubled, 1 - 2 hours, depending on the warmth of your kitchen.

Gently deflate dough, and transfer to a lightly greased work surface.

Roll dough into a 16 x 21-inch rectangle.

Spread dough with 1/3 c. softened butter.

Mix brown sugar and cinnamon, and sprinkle evenly over dough.

Starting with a short end, roll dough into a log, and cut into 12 slices.

Place buns in a lightly greased 9 x 13 pan.

Cover the pan, and let the buns rise until nearly doubled, about 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 400 F.

Uncover and bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
