The Ultimate Cinnamon Roll
This is one of the recipes that has been provided by Shirley Cline from San Fransisco. (You can contact Shirley by emailing her - click here). Shirley had this to say:

"These (4 in total) were provided by my friend Jim Winer. I have not tried them but he always sends great recipes".


1/4 C butter or margarine
1/2 C Milk
1/2 C granulated sugar
1 tsp. salt
1/2 C warm water
2 pkg. active dry yeast
2 eggs, beaten
4 1/2 C unbleached flour

1/4 C butter or margarine (melted)
1/2 C light brown sugar
1/2 C  white sugar
1 Tbsp. ground cinnamon


Proof yeast by mixing in warm water in a large bowl. When it is bubbly and obviously working, melt 1/4 C butter in 1/2 C milk in a small bowl in the microwave or a saucepan. Add 1/2 C sugar and salt (if you use it . . . really don't need it). Cool to lukewarm and stir into yeast mixture. Add beaten eggs and 1/2 of the flour, beat until smooth. Add rest of flour a bit at a time, working in with hands when dough becomes too heavy for spoon. Knead in bowl for about 5 minutes, then cover with a clean linen towel and sit in a warm, moist place for 1 hour (until doubled in size).

Punch down the dough and dump it out on a lightly floured bread board. Roll out into a large square, flattening bubbles as you go. Spread generously with melted butter, then sprinkle sugars and cinnamon over butter to your own personal taste. (I like LOTS). Roll up like a large jelly roll; slice in 1" slices. Cover with the linen towel and return to the warm spot for about 1 hour (until rolls are nice and puffy). Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes. 

If serving immediately, spread with glaze below as soon as they come out of the oven, and serve. If saving to eat through the week, cool completely and store in refrigerator in an airtight container. Mix up the glaze and refrigerate in airtight bowl. When ready to serve, give each roll 30 minutes in the microwave on high. Add a dollop of glaze and a squirt of squeeze butter and microwave for another 10 seconds before serving.


1 C confectioners sugar
1 tsp. vanilla

Mix in room-temperature water until spreading consistency.
