Super easy cinnamon rolls.

From the first time I made these cinnamon rolls I knew the recipe was a keeper. The dough is so easy to work with, and  turns out nice cinnamon rolls everytime. This recipe is easy to half for making a small batch of 12 rolls. The full recipe makes 2 dozen.

Super easy cinnamon rolls

For the dough

1 1/2 tablespoons active dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water
1 1/4 cups warm buttermilk
2 eggs
5 1/2 - 6 cups of all purpose flour
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons salt

Mix the yeast in the warm water and let sit about five minutes
Add the remaining ingredients and stir until it forms a dough. Knead the dough until nice and smooth. (about 10 minutes). cover the dough and let rise in a warm spot for about an hour.
After an hour, punch down and divide the dough in half.
Roll each half into a rectangle about 12x18 inches

For the filling
1/2 cup butter softened, 1 cup sugar and 1/3 cup of cinnamon. mix all the filling ingredients together and spread  half on each of the dough rectangles
Roll up the dough starting with the long end.

Using a serrated knife, slice each roll into 12 peices about 1 1/2 inches wide.
Place the rolls about 2 inches apart on a baking sheet. Flatten each roll slightly with your  palm.  

Cover the rolls and let them raise in a warm place for about 20 minutes while the oven preheats. Bake the rolls for 15 minutes at 375 

When cooled you can top with cream cheese icing or a powdered sugar glaze.
