Cinnabon Cinnamon Buns that you make yourself!

DECADENCE! That is what these are pure DECADENCE! SINFUL & DELICIOUS a special treat for special times! This is not my recipe but these are worth blogging! These take time & lots of butter & sugar but worth all of it! Every bite is worth savoring & you will be pleased with the results! Better than any cinnamon bun you can buy because your house will fill with their amazing aroma & your mouth will smile as you eat them! DIG IN & ENJOY!

1 & 1/2 Cups Granulated Sugar
3 TBS Cinnamon
2 Packs Yeast
1 TSP Sugar
2/3 Cup granulated Sugar
2/3 Cup Melted Butter
1 Cup Warm Water
1 Cup Warm Whole Milk
2 TSP Salt
2 Eggs Beaten
2 tsp vanilla
8 Cups Flour
Mix 1 & 1/2 Cups Sugar with the 3 TBS Cinnamon & set aside. Stir yeast in to the 1 cup warm water with 1 tsp of sugar. Set aside. In a large bowl mix milk, 2/3 cup sugar, 2/3 cup melted butter, salt, vanilla &  the eggs . Beat well. Add the yeast water & sugar mixture & beat again. Add 4 cups of the flour & beat. Stir in the remaining flour until you get a stiff dough. If you cannot work in all the flour it is ok. Now turn the dough out onto a well floured surface & knead dough for 8 minutes. You will get a stretchy elastic dough & that is what you want. Place back in the bowl & cover. Let dough rise in a warm place until double in size. Roll dough out on a floured surface to make a 15 inch by 20 inch rectangle. Pour 1/2 Cup melted butter onto the surface of the dough & spread out evenly over the whole surface of the dough. Now sprinkle on the cinnamon & sugar mixture. Spread out evenly ! Roll up tight to make a long cylinder of dough. Take a large glass pan like a lasagna pan & cover the bottom with 1/2 Cup melted butter & 1/2 cup granulated sugar. Coat evenly. go back to the dough & slice into 12 rounds. Lay rounds down into the cinnamon & sugared pan.

                    THESE ARE READY TO BAKE! YIPPEE!

Cover & let rise until puffed up but not quite doubled in size, ( I layed mine in the pan covered & put in the fridge over night. I took them out in the morning & let them do the rising part which took about 1 hour in a very warm spot. ) Once puffed up they are ready to bake.                                                                

Bake in a 350 degree oven until raised & nicely browned. About 20 to 30 minutes give or take. Baking depends a lot on the weather & your oven! Start checking at 20 minutes & go from there! Check for doneness by inserting a toothpick or cake tester. it should come out with NO RAW DOUGH. Once brown & tested for doneness take out of the oven & dump out onto a large flat serving platter. Let cool to a nice warm temperature . Now ice with the following icing.
8 OZ. Cream Cheese softened
8 OZ Butter softened
2 TSP Vanilla
4 Cups Powdered Sugar ( more or less)
Dash of Salt
Beat butter & cream cheese. Add vanilla & salt & beat again. Now beat in powdered sugar. SLATHER ONTO WARM BUNS & SERVE! Be ready for the OOOHHHS & AAAHHHHSSS!  
Think you can handle one of these bad boys? I think you can!
