Makes 12 Rolls .

Prep time: 30 minsCook time: 30 mins

Ingredients:1 Package of Dry Yeast ¾ cup of Whole Milk ¼ cup of Granulated Sugar ¼ cup of Water, warmed up to 115 degrees ¼ tsp of Vanilla Extract 1 Egg 1 tsp of Salt ¼ cup of Unsalted Butter, melted 4 cups of All Purpose Flour ¼ cup of Melted Butter, to brush over the top before baking
For the Filling,
1/3 cup of Unsalted Butter, at room temperature ¾ cup of Brown Sugar ¼ cup of Granulated Sugar 1 1/2 Tbsp of Ground Cinnamon

For the Glaze,
1 1/4 cups of Powdered Sugar ½ tsp of Vanilla Extract 3 to 4 Tbsp of Warm Milk

1) In a small bowl, combine the warm water and 1 tsp of the granulated sugar, sprinkle the yeast over the top and let it sit for about 5 minutes.

2) In the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with a dough hook, mix the egg, milk, salt, sugar and melted butter. Add 2 cups of the flour and the water, vanilla and yeast mixture, mix until its all incorporated and slowly add about 2 more cups of flour. Turn the speed up to medium and let it mix for about 5 to 7 minutes or until you have a smooth dough.

3) Oil a large bowl with some vegetable oil and set aside. Take the dough out of the mixer and pull it together with your hands to form a ball. Place it in the oiled bowl and oil the top of the dough with a little vegetable oil. Cover with plastic wrap and place it in a warm spot to rise for about 2 hours .

4) In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar, granulated sugar and cinnamon for the filling, set aside.

5) When doubled in size, punch the dough down and roll it out onto a floured surface into a 15x9” rectangle. Spread the soft butter over the top and sprinkle evenly over the sugar and cinnamon mixture. Staring from one of the long ends, tightly roll the dough into a jelly roll form. Cut into 14 to 16 slices (make sure they are even) and place them cut side down in a well buttered 9x13 baking pan. Cover with plastic wrap and let put them back into a warm spot to rise for another 1 ½ hours.

 6) Meanwhile preheat your oven to 4 degrees and let me your kitchen will smell of Christmas its amazing !

7) Once risen, brush them with some melted butter and bake them for about 30 minutes or until golden brown.

8) While the cinnamon rolls cool for a few minutes make the glaze. Mix all the ingredients of the glaze in a bowl except for the milk, once the cream cheese is all mixed, slowly add the milk until you get a runny glaze consistency. Immediately pour the glaze over the cinnamon rolls and enjoy!
