Mmmm! These were delish and made the house smell sooo good! I took them to work and they were gone in no time. I got compliments on them from the staff all day. =)
When making them without the aid of a bread maker or stand mixer, I have a few key tricks that I don't see anyone had noted.
1.) Proof the yeast in the warm water with 1 tsp. of the sugar from the recipe.
2.) While yeast is doubling, *slowly* melt the butter in the milk over the stovetop on med-low heat. Beat the (room temp) egg in your mixing bowl, and then wisk in your milk/butter before adding yeast mix.
The key is not to shock the yeast with any cold ingredients.
I did a first rise of the dough (45 min.) before rolling it out and adding the filling, etc. For the second rise of the prepared rolls, I put a hot towel under the pan and covered with plastic wrap and another warm towel. 2 rises may take longer, but it made for *perfect* cinnamon rolls.
